I have an old Tokai Breezysound. It's pretty beaten and has extra routs in the body. I'd like to put in a neck position humbucker. Could anyone provide me with a diagram or photos of how to do this please?

I think this has a five way switch but I'm not entirely sure.

Maybe I should post a photo of the switch,

Thanks in advance

Mick.

you would only need a 5 way if you want to split the coils on the humbucker, otherwise its just standard tele wiring is it not?

Hi Mark,

Yes, I guess that is right. My dilemma is how do you wire the five-way in a three-way configuration?

I look at schematics but they all seem to indicate four tags on each side of the switch. This one has six one side and two on the other but seems to be the original Tokai switch. Is that correct?

Have you seen one like that? Maybe someone has changed it over time?

Cheers

Mike.

i cant see any reason to put a 5 way switch on a tele mike....so I doubt its original..

I would just buy a 3 way switch and use that
