Well that whole idea turned out like crap and I couldnt get it to work for soem reason. I think it might be my soldering skills.
I got a Alpha pots Les Paul wiring kit, that is pre-wired. I am lookign for a way to integrate a OBEL with little mod to the stock wiring. I am thinking that the OBEL should be wired into the Third log on the 3way switch.

the 3 way DOES have a single output wire. the rub is the fact that the volumeS are BEFORE the OBEL AND 2 of them. the whole point in having the OBEL is to have a MASTER VOLUME after the OBEL JACK. this sends the pickups full volume signal to the tip of the jack, out to and thru the effects back in the ring(receive) of the jack, then thru the single MASTER VOLUME to the output jack. with pickup volumes for each pickup AND being before the OBEL jack, you might as well just get an audio switcher and go the true bypass route only, because you are not addressing the fundamental use of the OBEL in the first place.
also, if you have no OBEL switch, you need a switchcraft 14b OBEL switching stereo jack to operate the guitar with nothing in the OBEL jack.
