Looking for 87 Saber wiring schematic

I have a 87 Ibanez Saber which I paln on replacing the neck pickup to a Dimarzio Chopper. I need a schematic to help in the wiring process. The pickups have a 3 way switch for each pickup. In the top position it splits the humbucker, in the middle position turns the pickup off and in the bottom position activates both coils. Heres a pic to better illustrate what I mean.

Does anyone have a wiring diagram to help me out?

Thanks for your time.
Rick

That guitar started out with 3 simple on/off switches(I had one many years ago. I would go back to that myself. The rest of the info you need is likely to be included with the new pickups you buy. Check out the dimarzio website.

Why don't you just solder the new pickup at the exact places where the old pickup is soldered? Just my 2 p....

Actualy they are on/off/on 3 way switches. Does anyone have a diagram how to wire up one of these switches correctly(coil tap)? My neck pickup is wired off/off/on right now and the other 2 pickups are wired wrong as well.. I'm trying to find a diagram which shows a coil tap(on single/off/on humbucker) as the ibanez single coil pickups are actually stacked humbuckers. The switch has 6 terminals and a base to ground. I've looked all over the internet and can't find a simple diagram anywhere. Here is what the 3 way switch looks like. The Dimarzio wire color is the same as Ibanez (red green white black).
