Rotary switch in a PJ bass?

    Anyone have a good wiring diagram for a 4 position rotary switch as a pickup selector on a PJ?

    My bass is routed for V/V/T but I don't like that setup. Was thinking about doing a Tony Franklin with a strat-type blade switch but that requires some more routing to accommodate the switch and that's a PitA (I'm not a much of a woodworker). Tried a V/Blend/T setup and I like that better. Was thinking about putting in a Gibson-style toggle but a 3P4T four-position rotary switch would allow for bridge / both (parallel) /neck / both (series).

    By the way, I ended up going with a Switchcraft 3-way toggle in my PJ, but it was a pain to get it to fit right, but I did, without any routing. All I needed to do was enlarge a pickguard hole from 3/8" to 1/2", but as it was a seriously tight fit on my bass, I can't guarantee it would fit on everyone's.
