    Swapping jp middle position, inside to outside.

    I know there is a push pull pot mod to have both inside and outside coil splitting on the jp like the bfr. I have a jp7 and I never use the middle position. I would like to figure out what I could change in the present wiring to switch it. Dimarzio color code is north coil is red black, and south coil green white. I have the modern switch. Can I swap the two (obviously keeping the same organization of hot and ground) on the circuit board of the switch? I know it would change the electric flow when in series but would it make a difference? What are your thoughts?

    Are you looking to rewire it so the outside coils are on in the middle position? I would probably remove the factory circuit board (with the labeled solder pads) and solder directly to the toggle, wiring it from scratch - It might be easier to simply replace the factory toggle with a new EP1111 toggle in case you ever decide to wire it back to factory specs.

    Edit: the reason behind removing the circuit board and/or starting with a new toggle is because the EBMM factory wiring sends certain pads to ground when the toggle is in different positions.

    I'm glad to help! If you need an extra toggle let me know, we have them in stock both with and without the circuit board.
