Gold Dpdt Toggle?

Does anyone make a larger toggle (LP-size) DPDT on-on-on switch in gold?

I've searched all the usual places and come up empty. Lots of mini-toggles, but that's it.

I was going to use a regular LP toggle switch, but I forgot it needs to be double-pole to keep my magnetic and piezo pickup signal paths separate.

A shot in the dark, but I figured some of the experts here might have a source.

Allparts might carry 'em; don't see them at StewMac. Although....a Les Paul style toggle is a double pole single throw; you can run two completely seperate signals through them (don't connect the two 'output' tabs), and have one, the other, or both selected, then sending them to wherever they need to go. Shouldn't that work?

I was thinking an LP switch is a single-pole double-throw, and that it combines the two signals in the center position. I'll have to find a schematic and work it out.

Ah, yes, you're right, I didn't notice the two output terminals that are normally jumpered together. Leaving them un-jumpered will work for me.

WD, Allparts, and a few other have gold LP-style toggles.

Thanks again mattia... you're a virtual fountain of knowledge :D
