I need wireing help - new pickups in my rg7621

I'm still working on my customized rg7621 well I got a new set of pickups ( a dimarzio tonezone 7 and a paf 7) and need to wire it up. I want to get rid for the tone control and use it and the vol. control as two independent vol. controls ( one for each pickup) So its two humbuckers two vol.s a five way switch to the output. Now can any one out there tell me how to wire this up ( if you could draw me a pic that one help allot) or does any one know where to find the wiring diagram for a stock rg7621 so I can work from there? :help:

Here is the original wiring diagram from Ibanez...


This may be helpful, but it seems to only work well with either the neck or bridge positions (the middle ones aren't very exciting)...

If you truly want two seperate volumes, you'll have to change the volume pot wiring too. Otherwise when you have both pickups on you will be drawing the volume of both down to ground as you move one pot or the other. Like on a jazz bass, you will switch the "pickup hot" with the "output hot". *Really that means switching the middle lug with the end lug, and leaving the ground where it is. *This way, when you turn the pot down, you are bleeding the pickup to ground, not the combined hot to ground, and they both work independently and can be brought all the way down without killing off the other one.
