The 6 lugs make it more than likely a DPDT (Double Pole, Double Throw) switch. Check it with a multi-meter's continuity function to be sure. A 3PDT is triple pole, meaning that it switches three circuits at once. A true bypass can be done with the DPDT. The two center lugs would be wired to the input and output jacks, the two bottom lugs are wired together, and the top two lugs are wired to your circuit. If you wanted an effects loop that you could switch out of your signal path at will, you'd wire the two top lugs to their own input and output jacks.

 

If the box is upside down, the input lugs is the center left hand lug, with the output to the loop at the top left. Input to the switch from the loop is the top right lug, and the output to your amp would be the center right hand lug.
