    Every man needs a guitar with 2 mini toggles in between his knobs. If you can’t do the splits, you haven’t lived:eek::D

    Thanks for the suggestion. PTC just suggested something similar. I am asking about what you listed here for the phase option.

    What does pickup straight to output do different? Kind of curious about this.

    Suhr calls it a "blower switch". A blower switch opens the bridge pickup straight to the guitar's main output, bypassing all volume and tone controls. The effect is a boost. I believe it may also bypass the pickup selector switch also, which opens up the possibility of going from neck pickup (for example) with whatever VOL and TONE settings you have engaged to full-blown bridge pickup slaying shredder tone with the flick of a switch or button or whatever you're using.

    Shucks. Just found out that the tone pot can't be wired for out of phase on my DGT.

    Well, PTC thought the control cavity was too small for toggles. Also warned that putting a split for each pickup might mess with the tone that DGT is known for, so I went forward with putting a blowout out the bridge and phase on the neck.
