Thankfully the CS dept. where I ordered them from is helping me sort it out and they're helping me find a high quality mini toggle w/ a quarter inch mount hole. Odd that the "mini" toggles I ordered required a 1/2" hole… I thought mini toggles implied that they would be 1/4" but I guess not.
While I have a million questions, I'll keep it to one a day. Regarding the cables I'm going to need… basically, if I buy/build a junction box I'll just need 1 TRS cable and one regular cable coming from the guitar) to get things hooked up correctly? Is that correct? And so, only one of the input jacks needs to be stereo? How would that effect the "tiger" wiring diagram as listed on the Wald site? I've tried to read up on all this stuff on various threads but I need an idiot proof answer… all this is quite new to me. Damn it, that's all kind of questions, though it was born of one.

2. The 5 way lugs are lined up opposite of the actual switch placement. To ensure you get it correct the first time around you will want to decipher the actual pickup lugs and output lug with a continuity meter.
3. Rosebuds wiring diagrams are also different in whether the neck pickup will share a tone control or have its own. Both the flipped middle and/or shared or not shared tone control is all up to you.
