Carvin's wiring colors are the same as Gibson's: http://www.seymourduncan.com/support...ic=color_codes

Use this, but omit the jumper between lugs 2 and 7.

Re: need a HH 5 way switch diagram w/coil splitting

the wiring diagram in the link of the OP is working with a standaard 5-way switch. The above diagram from RGT requires a special switch.

The switch in the diagram is the SC-5 that the OP said he has.

The jumper puts the neck pickup in parallel funnily enough.

Re: need a HH 5 way switch diagram w/coil splitting

You need A super switch (or a switch that is made for it on the inside).

If a super switch,
Use one of these (depending on what coils you want).
