Parallel wiring help

I want to rewire my RGT42FM to have these sounds:
1)neck full
2)neck parallel
3)neck and bridge full
4)bridge parallel
5)bridge full
I know I'll need a multi pole switch to do this.The problem is,I can't find a wiring diagram for it.I've seen one for wiring a single pup parallel but,not with another pup like I've described.Does anybody have any suggestions?

Re: Parallel wiring help

Interestingly, Ibanez has a 5-way switch made for 2 humbucker guitars that would give you four of the positions you want. #4 is the only one you'd be missing, and you'd instead get 1 coil of each pickup in parallel which, in my opinion, is more useful than the bridge in parallel anyway. The part number for it is 3PS1SC5 and the ones I've seen have the characters "2502N" printed on the side. Then, there are wiring diagrams for it all over and they're far simpler than any multi-pole switch is going to be.

Just a thought. Can't help ya if you need the exact combinations listed. Good luck.

Re: Parallel wiring help

Is there any 5-way switch made by Dimarzio similar to the Ibanez one? One that would allow you to get those five sounds?
