    I am thinking of installing 2 MM style pickups in my FrankenJazz. It’s routed for a J/MM set up now, so I’ll have to route the neck for the MM.
    I want to go Vol / Vol / Tone or stack tone / 5 way rotary switch (if possible).
    That way I can set it up…both full, both inside, both outside, inside outside, outside inside.

    Would this work ?

    Yeah, it could most certainly be done, if the MM pickups comes with a 4 conductor wiring ;).

    Just get yourself a 5 way switch and a good schematic, and youre off to go. If the pickups youre getting is 4 cond., then you could use a "two humbucker" guitar scheme to get it rigth.

    Great, thanks !!!!

    The other thing I was thinking was going with 2 stacked Vol/Tone for each pickup and a 5 position rotary dial.
