    I have an old Hagstrom Swede guitar from 1970, which has two 3way switches at 90 degree angles, a 5lug for pickup selection, and a 7lug for tone select.

    Switchcraft seems to have 5 and 9 lug.

    If not mistaken, the SG Custom with 3 pickups uses a 3way 7lug switch, correct? If so, do you modify a 9lug? Or is there a part#?

    I need a 3-way toggle though

    Basically on an old Hagstrom, the 3way toggle has a 0.0047uf and a 0.015uf cap connected to it. Middle position is straight through, then up is one cap down the other.

    Plus, 0.047uf caps on the tones knobs. Some diagrams show a resistor as well, some don't... my Hagstrom Swede is apparently the 3rd one ever built so, I'm using the oldest diagrams I can find. :)

    I can't read most, so been working on a more visual diagram like Seymour Duncan provides. The Hagstrom site has a PDF of the modern wiring, and very similar which says the 7 lug switch, but a few spots in the diagram are a bit messy and confusing.

    Sounds like you need DPDT switches, and although I'm not 100% I think that's what it's showing in the schematic.

    Yeah, I think I came across a Fender made toggle switch that will work

    Fender 3-POSITION (DPDT) Toggle Switch
    Part# 0068469000

    Didn't know they used one, but I guess not everything by Fender is a Strat or a Tele. :D Surprised that no one here had any info though... since again, I think they use these for the HHH SG's.
