    I'm intending to replace the MEC soapbars in my Warwick Streamer Stage 1 with Bartolinis, and am leaning towards the Quad Coils for the option to switch them between P/humbucker/reverse P

    I'd rather not drill another hole in the bass for a selector switch though so would ideally switch between these three modes using a rotary selector switch and free up a pot by switching to a stacked bass/treble tone pot.

    The bad news is I'm a complete novice at this sort of thing but am keen to learn rather then send it to a shop... Having a Google for selector switches throws up a lot of options, but this site seems to have a lot of options for us Brits

    I obviously need a three position switch, but how many poles? Would any of these switches be suitable? I'm guessing maybe either

    or ?

    For info the Quad Coils use 4 conductor cable


    Thanks very much in advance for your help!
