    Here is one that may be more than you want to spend. I had a guitar tech install a Fishman bridge, wire T2 as a volume for the Fishman. Works for me, but I am used to Ricks with a blend knob, and I almost always play with my tone controls wide open anyways. Rolling the Fishman in and out has a nice (almost compression effect) on the tone. Nope, still doesn't sound like a real acoustic... Just an idea.

    I like wiring the second Tone control as a blender knob to dial in the neck pickup.

    Or use the second tone as a bass cut, like G&L.

    I did the Gilmour mod to my strat (7 sound 'neck on' switch), along with wiring the middle tone to the bridge. I get some pretty tasty sound out of my strat when I play it especially for blues.

    Three-way switch wired like a post 67 Tele. B/BN/N. Bottom tone knob is a blender for the middle pickup in case you feel the need for the in-betweens. Middle tone is master tone.

    It's what the Nashville Tele should be. :D

    I like the one with s1 a lot. Its's essentially Armstrong with more use of middle position and no blend. I'm using Armstrong blender ATM but I found myself going full on or full of and only mixing OoP in as I can't stand plain OoP. I will try this, I have a S1 switch waiting to be used

    I agree completely. Oop is only usable if you have seperate volumes to blend them sparingly. I found it to be too much knob fiddling for a sound a never really used anyway. The N+B option is very good, and the Half-Oop has got some great upper-mid spank and a tight, funky bottom. You may need to play with the cap value to dial it in with your pickups, but what I showed there is a good starting place for most strat pickups. I really like the Hoop position with a Dynacomp and a slight touch of grease.

    I have seen hoop with resistor too, I will have a go with your schematic and will do some adjustments. Will report back for sure. I had a good experience with oop and some effects (face skin lifting drive with rangemaster) but by itself it just sucks
