Import/Japan 5 way switch wiring

I've got a 5 way switch like this

that i'm trying to put into my RGA121. The standard 5 way wiring diagram( doesn't work because I think the switch contacts are like this; s_01

Does anyone have wiring diagrams for switches like this? I've been frustrating over this for ages trying to work it out.

PS. Sorry for the links, it won't let me embed them.

Re: Import/Japan 5 way switch wiring

Welcome to the forum...

I have tried the same wiring diagram in one of my guitars and I couldn't do it with three diferents 5-way switch: Ibanez YM-50, Dimarzio, and a Standard 5-way:

I don't know what is that switch in the diagram... I have no idea ... but it didn't work with none of the ones above

I think we must use a Mega switch or Super switch multipole. This one works for sure.
I just buy today a Dimarzio EP1112 multipole switch:

and I'll look for a wiring diagram here:
