    I’m currently replacing a broken preamp in a Parker NiteFly with a Fishman Powerchip, and I’d like to connect my guitar’s Magnetic / Piezo three-way selector switch to the Powerchip. Need a little advice on the proper connection to make!

    There are currently three wires running between my selector switch and the original preamp, one for each position. (black is magnetic pickups only, green is both mag + piezo, red is piezo only)


    The Powerchip only has a single pad allotted for connecting a three-way switch to it and it's throwing me for a bit of a loop. Wiring diagram for reference:


    Do I solder all three switch wires together and then run a single jumper out to the Powerchip pad? Something else entirely?

    Would appreciate any help, thanks!!
