    I think I have it.

    Using the numbering in the diagram above:
    7: OUTPUT A 8: BLK Wire tied to OUTPUT B
    5: RED Wire In 6: Ground tied from 4
    3: WHT Wire In 4: Ground Jumped from 1
    1: GRN/BARE Wires In 2: RED Jumped from 5
    In this example:
    Position 3 yields a connection from RED to OUTPUT A while grounding OUTPUT B (RAIL MODE)
    Position 2 ties RED and WHT leaving BLK to OUTPUT B (HUMBUCKER IN SERIAL)
    Position 1 GROUNDS WHT AND RED leaving BLK to OUTPUT B (P-90)

    Does this look right?

    Weird. I like it.

    Let me chew on this. I've got a couple of customer guitars to get out today, but I'll see what I can come up with. Slowly.

    Exactly
    Position 1 would be Rails only to Vol and Tone Pots A
    Position 2 would be Rails and P-90 in series humbucker mode to Vol and Tone Pots B
    Position 3 would be P-90 to Vol and Tone Pots B

    *edited with correct pot labels*

    I plan the output of the rails to go a separate volume and tone pots than that of the humbuckers and p-90.

    The wiring would be from the switches to the pots to the 3 way switch and then on to the mono output jack.

    each rail -> switch -> Volume pot A 250k -> Tone pot A 250k-> 3 way switch -> output jack
    humbucker mode + p90s -> switch -> Volume pot B 500k -> Tone pot B 500k-> 3 way switch -> output jack

    Thank you ArtieToo, I seem to lack the skill to configure the switch in a manner where I can establish a separate Output when in the Rail mode from when the switch is in Humbucker and P-90 mode. It's twisting my melon.

    My desired outcome from the switch is this:

    Rail Mode : OUTPUT A

    Humbucker Mode: OUTPUT B
    P-90 Mode: OUTPUT B

    I've been starring at this chart hoping the answer will come to me.

  • Set of P-Rails, 2 Mustang DP3T Slider Switches 8 lug ON-ON-ON

    I'm attempting to wire a set of P-Rails where I have a Mustang DP3T Slider Switch for each pick-up sliding between Rails /Humbucker in Series /P-90 modes.

    What I'd like is One OUTPUT be dedicated to the Rails only mode. A separate OUTPUT for Humbucker and P-90 Mode.

    The information DP3T switches is oddly difficult to find.

    May I ask for some of you more experienced members to help?

    The switches I am using are 8 lug ON-ON-ON DP3T Slider Switches from Switchcraft.
