Are you interested in doing this via just 1 switch?
    I had no idea that was possible- and is probably something I might want to try in the future! But I figure, since the guitar does already have 3 switches, I can use this to play around with different configurations (split w/ series or parallel middle, humbucker w/ series or parallel middle).

    I've never actually heard the middle in parallel with split humbuckers... so I'm just making an educated guess that it'll sound the way I like. I might want to try everything out before making a permanent decision.

    Ok, for now, separate switches.

    Eric,

    I spotted something that needed to be changed. Use this version instead.
