540s 3 switch pup wiring diagram

This is for anyone who comes along looking for the drawing to the 1988 540s Roarstar Pro Saber. I just replaced my middle pup and took the time to draw the configuration out for any knuckleheads who need it. God knows nobody else has it.
Heres the 2 mini switches for the single coils (on/off), along with the third which, is a on/off/coil tap for the Humbucker.
You can see why they changed to the 5 way slider selector. Cut down on time and money to wire this up. Those clever Japanese.........

NECRO BAMP. Might you have this image in a bigger format or does anyone have a proper one from Ibanez?

No sorry this is what I drew to replace the original pickups with 5 wire dimarzio pickups.
It is correct but not for the original pickups that were in the guitar. those pickups had only 3 wires I think. They were IBZUSA pickups made by dimarzio as well for Ibanez
