Hi there

I have this 5 way switch I need to use on a guitar because it is the only one the fits into its switch cavity.
The thing is that I have no idea how to name/number its contacts.

I am guessing that the  four upper contact pins could be either (seeing them from left to right) B-M-N-C or C-B-M-N  in relation  to a standard fender switch and the inferior ones are designated the left series of letters . But I have no idea how it actually works. I cannot find any information on a similar switch.  

Does anybody knows how to read this?

There are a bizillion ways to wire up this type of switch depending on what you need to do. Have a look at the Seymour Duncan site for some typical applications. And google is your friend, have a read through some of the many forums out there dedicated to Strat type projects.
