Trying to get my Viper working again. I have 2 non Ovation pa's, Firebird-ish, 5 leads (doesn't help).

The neck pup was working bridge not. Opened it up and things looked ok, nothing obvious.

I "had" a Les Paul type switch hitched up, very tight fit, I pulled that out and found I had a mini switch (on-on-on) in my spare parts. Wired it up bridge hot lead to north post, neck to south post, then a wire from the center posts to the volume pot etc.

Now I am getting both pups alone, but not both in the center position. Am I using the correct switch?

Thanks a lot.

Hard to help without knowing the specific switch and specific pickups.
