Smile Help!-Rewiring Universe Uv777bk

Hey there! while in the process of giving the guitar a well deserved cleaning, I decided to rewire the guitar to be more to my liking. The problem is however, I am becoming confused as to the wiring. What I am looking to do is wire the guitar so that it is as the following:

Position 1 (switch towards the bridge): Full bridge humbucker
Position 2: Inside coils of the bridge and neck humbuckers (ala Pertucci)
position 3: single coil only
Position 4: Inside coils of the bridge and neck humbuckers but out of phase. I could also go for full neck and bridge humbuckers in out of phase mode in this position. I havent really decided what to do here.
Position 5: Full neck humbucker.

The pickups are stock Dimarzio Blaze which came with the guitar.
Thanks for your time!

you wiring is somewhat standard except for position 4 attempt. its only doable with a a couple of mini switches that would both control each of the leads for the pups you desire to run out of phase

I would assume that a 4 pole pickup selector could also get the job done, but I would be useless for coming up with a diagram for such a beast.

Re: Help!-Rewiring Universe Uv777bk

Here is the desired schematic:

No mini switches, nothing up my sleeve!
The options are:
1. Neck HB
2. Inside coils,
3. Single coil
4. Neck fingerboard side coil out of phase (blue coil) with Bridge inside coil
5. Bridge HB
Only position 3, single coil on it's own will be non hum cancelling!

(I took the schematic from the Ibanez site, corrected it (doh!) and then re-did it as per your request)

I should have mentioned that the top pickup in my diagram is the neck humbucker.
