VERY few "professionals" are competent with electronics sadly.

Which Epi are you looking to modify? I have the Tribute Plus with two push/pulls for series/parallel. I would kind of like to wire in a 3rd push/pull for out-of-phase but I'm not sure I want to mess with it. That would be a unique hybrid between the two push/pull and four push/pull configurations I have found. Not entirely sure how/if that would work. Also, if I add a 3rd push/pull, should I go ahead and add a 4th for the full Jimmy Page circuit? However, that might require a complete rewire. Now we are getting into a lot of work with questionable return.

sorry to but in,
with the jimmy page style wiring do you still use shielded cable from the 3 way? and is it ok to solder it to the top of the push pull pot?

thanks, it was just the heat needed to solder the shield and the top looks a bit thin, I didn't want to damage the switch
