How to wire this 3 way switch for normal config. Have Jack to connect too.?
It was originally for 3 pickups.
Cheers if you can shed some light.

That's a standard switch with 4 contacts and earth. I've got 6 contacts and earth. Any ideas which to use?

do you have a multimeter?

If you do, you can simply test which poles correspond to which switch position. once you have located the middle position poles, I assume you will need to link both pick ups to these poles too, so that you have a both pick ups there as an extra option.
