Is this combination possible?

Is the possible wiring combination possible, I've done several wiring jobs in the past, and I'm not sure if this is even viable. Any thoughs are much apprechiated

H-S-H w/Coil Split Wiring with following combinations:

1) Master Swich: Down

(Jem and strat) H-S-H and S-S-S when the two Humbuckers are split from a tap on the tone pot

Tap: DOWN

Position 1 = Bridge Humbucker (Full)
Position 2 = Bridge Humbucker (Full) + Middle Single Coil
Position 3 = Middle Single Coil
Position 4 = Middle Single Coil + Neck Humbucker (Full)
Position 5 = Neck Humbucker (Full)

Tap: UP

Position 1 = Bridge Humbucker (Split)
Position 2 = Bridge Humbucker (Split) + Middle Single Coil
Position 3 = Middle Single Coil
Position 4 = Middle Single Coil + Neck Humbucker (Split)
Position 5 = Neck Humbucker (Split)

2) Master switch: UP

(essentially Middle coil is removed from chain, and position 3 becomes a Humbucker combiner rather than a single coil sellector)

(Gibson and Tele) H-H and S-S when Humbuckers are split.
TAP: DOWN

Positions 1+2 = Bridge Humbucker (Full)
Position 3 = Bridge Humbucker (Full) + Neck Humbucker (Full)
Positions 4+5 = Neck Humbucker (Full)

TAP: UP

Positions 1+2 = Bridge Humbucker (Split)
Position 3 = Bridge Humbucker (Split) + Neck Humbucker (Split)
Positions 4+5 = Neck Humbucker (Split)


Cheers,

Spike.

P.S.

If this is too vague let me know, and I'll ellaborate further.

Re: Is this combination possible?

Use the Dan Armstrong Super Strat wiring to get all combinations of the three pickups. Add two tone controls to your guitar so that you have one control for each pickup (usefull because in series mode, the tone controls act only on their pickups, not the entire signal). Use each of the three tone controls as a tap on its pickup.

Your guitar will look like this:




The Super Strat diagram looks like this:
