    Found this, which is exactly what iím looking for, just wondering if this still relates to the original diagram you sent me.

    That's an on-on switch, not on-on-on.
    Simon's diagram is for on-on-on.

    Simon's drawing will do nicely for on/on too. Strictly you only need to wire one half, but both is fine too. Just ignore the bits of the diagram showing other switch combinations.
    An interesting variation would be to have separate volume controls for each pickup.
    Build #1, failed solid body 6 string using neck from a scrapped acoustic (45+ odd years ago as a teenager!)
    Build #2, ugly parlour semi with scratch built body and ex Peavey neck
    Build #3, Appalachian Dulcimer from EMS kit
    Build #4, pre-owned PB ESB-4

    A 2-position switch won't do the same job as a 3-position switch! The diagram works, but you don't get the 'both pickups in parallel' position.

    So having the flat toggle lever is imperative?

    If that's the case, I'd just pony up and buy the $20 dollar one from Realparts. ($27.80 w/ postage)
    At least you'll get what you want.

    Weird you can't easily get a flat toggle on-on-on switch, but at least you canget one at a price (though there must be a supplier somewhere who does one and supplies Realparts/Allparts).

    Looks good, thought you may need some extra 1/4" nuts and washers.
