    Anyone know of something that can replace the 3 way toggle in a Jp6? I want JPX wiring but love that forearm scoop. Not looking to do surgery on the guitar

    there are rotary 5 way switches like PRS uses. there's also 5 way toggle or 8 way toggle switches out there. either should be able to be retrofitted into your guitar, provided the electronics cavity is deep enough (the rotary switch is very tall).

    Again, depending on the room available in the guitar cavity, I'd go for a Freeway switch. I've installed a 3x3-05 (6 positions, lots of wiring possibilities) in one of my guitars and it is awesome.

    If you can leave without the piezo but with a dual-locking trem, there's always the JP16 that has the old forearm contour. However it also has a three-way toggle switch, so not sure if you'll like it.
