help with 3 way switch wiring

Hi i got an ibz rg470 with tone zone in the bridge , ibz inf in the middle and air norton in the neck with 5 way switch, i want to replace the switch for a fender type 3 way switch and eliminate the single coil and use only the humbuckers in a configuration:

pos. 1 bridge
pos. 2 inner coils
pos. 3 neck

how i got to do the wiring, i search in the web but i only found a different position 2 with the two humbuckers at the same time or with a different switch i think is a dpdt switch and mine is a fender type 3 way switch.

Found this a couple of days ago and thought it was interesting. No idea if it works, but you should try it and report your findings. Ignore the top half of the diagram, obviously.
