Here are some shots of a tele with TG inspired pickups, I didn't add any switches to the top but can get about 10 usable sounds with two push/pull pots for splitting the hums and adding the bridge to any combination. It is currently tuned to D
All the best

Hi Tim,

I am a tremendous fan of yours. Any chance you can put a clip of that guitar up on youtube?

Thanks!

Oh and can you give any more detail about the pickups and the combination push/pull wiring?  Did you perform the work yourself?

Thanks again!

Hi Guys
the way i worked out the switching was to have a 5 way strat style switch with 2 pull pots, the volume pot pulls to make the two hums single coil and the tone pot pulls to add the bridge pup to any combination that doesnt already have the bridge in it,  allowing for a total of 13 different (mostly usable) sounds.
1 Neck HB
2 neck+middle HB
3 Middle HB
4 Middle HB+Br. 
5 Br.
Pull Volume pot for single coil
6 Neck single
7 Neck + Middle both single
8 Middle single
9 middle + Br. both single 
Pull tone pot to add Br. Pup
10 Neck HB + br.
11 Neck HB + middle HB +br.
12 Neck single + Br
13 all three single

I tried to get as many of the combinations to be hum cancelling as possible, Im pretty sure the only selections that arent hum cancelling are when an idividual pickup is all by itself in single coil.
Hope that makes sense.
video clips coming
all the best 
 Tim

Hi Herb, 
 I put Lollar El Rayo Humbuckers in it and left an overwound Fender Custom shop Bridge in place.
