Thumbs up Need help with wiring 1 HB 1 SC with 5 way switch (solved)

Hi! I really nedd your help here. I have searched this forum and the web for days but I just cant find what I'm looking for.
I have a Ibanez Apex100 with 1 humbucker and 1 singelcoil, mounted a 5 way (Fender) switch and have only one volumpot, no tone and I rather not install a push/pull on the volumepot.

What I want to acomplish is

(bridge side) pos 1-full humbucker
pos 2-north side of humbucker
pos 3-full humbucker/singelcoil
pos 4-North side of humbucker/singelcoil
(neck side) pos 5-singelcoil

What I am trying to get in pos 4 is the "same thing" as pos 2 on telecasters.
Is this even possible?

I also have an VLX91 switch lying around if that would make a difference instead of the regular 5 way switch.

If someone have other suggestions for wiring, please bring them on. :-)
The only positions I dont want to change in that case is pos 1, 3 and 4.

Really hope that someone here are able to help me out and I would really need a diagram that I can follow. :-)

If you just learn what the switch lugs do--then you can wire the pickups to do anything you want--check out Bancika's site:

AlaskaBat, Thanks for putting all these links in one spot.

On a side note, I for one am glad you are back. Your knowledge and help has been missed. I hope your back is better.

Re: Need help with wiring 1 HB 1 SC with 5 way switch

It's solved, thanks to DiMarzio! :-)
They made me a diagram for what I wanted. It turns out that it's not possible with a regular 5 way switch, I have to use the VLX91.
So what I now have is

Pos1-full humbucker (bridge)
Pos2-north coil HB/singelcoil parallel
Pos3-full humbucker/singelcoil
Pos4-north coil HB/singelcoil series
Pos5-singelcoil (neck)

I'm a very happy man today! :-)
