Help with wiring - RG350M

Ok, so I have this RG350M from 2009 with EdgeIII that is getting a pickup-upgrade.. And regarding that, I need a wiring-diagram to do it right..

I've never done this before, so I figured I'd try it on a 350.. But is there anythng I must not do?
Anything I can do wrong, so that the pickup won't be properly connected?
### And if I want to change all the old cables (excluding the ones attached to the new pickups of course) - What do I search for on evilbay?
I mean, are there any standard cables that can be used?

I'll use stock wolume- tone- and switch-parts, so the only things getting an upgrade will be the pickups..

Oh, and how do I know for sure that the pickups are not upside-down, like, mounted the wrong way in the pickguard, when there is no writing on them
(I don't know if there is writing on the pickups I'm getting, this is more of a general question)?

The pickups will most likely be (if it matters for the wiring in any way), because it was the only pink ones I was able to find which could be shipped to Norway:
Neck - DiMarzio Evolution DP158
Single - DiMarzio Evolution ISCV2
Bridge - DiMarzio Evolution DP159

I want to wire the pickups (H-S-H) like this:
1st position: Neck pickup
2nd position: Split neck-pickup & single coil
3rd position: Single coil
4th position: Split bridge-pickup & single coil
5th position: Bridge-pickup

Found a picture on the net to llustrate it (which I guess is typical JEM/RG-config?):

Re: Help with wiring - RG350M


And is there a general rule on wiring?

PS: I decided on keeping the INF-pickups for now, but I hope to get EVOs in the future.. Or maybe PAFs

This is for the INF's...... it will be slightly different with domarzio's.

Re: Help with wiring - RG350M

Those are Dimarzios and the switch in the 350 should be pretty much the same. That's how you'll get what you want. The wire colors are the same.
As far as pickup orientation, to get those combinations you want the hole where the cables come out of the bridge pickup to be facing down, towards the pots, and the neck, I believe needs to have the exit hole facing up, towards the upper horn.
