Coil split with HSH???

Well I'm thinking in a mod for my RG370 (HSH).
Using the standar 5way switch, Basically I want this configuration:

(using coil split)

1 Bridge (outer coil)
2 Bridge (inner or outer coil?) + Middle
3 Middle
4 Neck (inner or outer coil?) + Middle
5 Neck (outer coil)

which is like a Strat S-S-S configuration
I'm not sure if in this case I'll have outer or inner coil in position 2 and 4. Please explain

(without coil split) the classical Ibanez one that is now on my guitar.

1 Bridge humbucker
2 Bridge (inner coil) + Middle
3 Middle
4 Neck (inner coil) + Middle
5 Neck humbucker

Is it possible to do this? Can you provide me diagram? What kind of pot or switch I have to buy?
I was thinking about a push/pull tone pot but I'm note sure.
Thank you

Re: Coil split with HSH???

I'm sure its possible but would take an experienced tech to get it right with the coil splitting, but may I ask with a 5 position switch and 4 other available (single-coil) configurations why would you possibly want to give up the bridge humbucker?

All of the info you need is in this sticky thread:

Your desired configuration is not possible with the stock switch--you need a multipole switch.

I would add a mini toggle to split the hums. That way you can have them as hums or singles in addition to the stock configuration.

Yep!
A push/pull pot in the tone pot wired correctly will do the trick

Re: Coil split with HSH???

I did the exact same question some years ago, and djohns74 provided a wiring diagram
But anyway, hope you find it useful

I made the mod but I didn't like it very much, I don't like the sound of single coils in the bridge and there was a drop in volume, and just sounded to thin... so I went with a series-parallel switching just for the neck pickup
