How could I wire this if possible?

I have a Tone zone (bridge), and an S1 (middle), no neck for my S470
I want a volume to control both pickups, a 3 way switch (strat style), and if possible a push pull pot for the tone zone which will replace the tone knob. I'm also unsure if a push pull is short enough to fit in the cavity.

the push pull pot will only work on the volume pot. the tone pot for a saber is way too shallow. so basically, you have a tele, right? at least as far as switching is concerned. wire it up like a tele, then wire the tap to the push pull pot on the volume. call it a day.

Re: How could I wire this if possible?

Here's an option if you don't use the tone knob(I never do so its a wasted knob normally). Unwire the tone knob but leave the case grounded. Take the 2 wires of the humbucker that would get hooked together in a standard humbucking setup and solder them to the center lug on the tone pot. Now when you back the tone knob down, you will gradually bypass one coil(tone all the way off gives straight single coil). If you wire a phase switch before the tone control, you can switch between each coil when in single mode.
