This Oak-Grigsby 2-pole superswitch is very useful for certain wiring. It's most often used in a Nashville Tele, but can be used in a Strat-style guitar that has a master tone control (a 2-control guitar, like an Ibanez or Suhr), where the Nashville Tele's pickup selection is desired:

Position 5: neck
Position 4: neck + middle
Position 3: neck + bridge
Position 2: bridge + middle
Position 1: bridge

In order to achieve the wiring above, both of the switch's poles are used. So there is no pole available to make tone control assignments, hence the requirement for a master tone control that is fed from the volume pot, rather than from the switch. Essentially this wiring marries the 1/2/4/5 positions of a Strat with the middle position of a Tele. If you're the player of a Strat-style guitar who likes the idea of the neck/bridge combination more than the middle pickup by itself, then this may be an option for you.
