MODS, Need Advice

So I have 2 S Series Guitars with HSH configurations. I am planning on putting noiseless strat pups in the mid positions. Heres why; I want the middle positions to be noiseless, but I want stacked buckers so I can wire the switches to coil tap both the middle and the neck/bridge when in position 2&4 so that it is only two coils that are RPRW like on a Fender Strat and get that quacky sound as opposed to the full bucker and middle pickup.

The advice I need is how is the best way to do this with the super thin S series body? I'd like to use a super strat switch to hopefully avoid modifying the bodies, but I'm afraid it will be to large. does anyone have a schematic or a good suggestion on how to do this?

The VLX91 is like a super switch and will fit the S.

Edit: Some S-series come with the VLX91 from the factory, check your guitar before you order.

Make sure the pickup isn't too deep. Some S bodies only accept shorter pickup. I was going to install a SD Clask Stack Plus in a 570 but it would not fit.
