Phase Reversal & Coil Tapping in RG520

I'm considering replacing the stock pickups in my RG520QS with the DiMarzio D-Activator Neck & Bridge pickups and replacing the 5-way with the DiMarzio multipole 5 way per the wiring instructions on their website. Here's my question.

I'm interested in throwing in a phase reversal switch on the neck to get a little wider sonic pallet but i want the phase reversal to work whether I'm using the neck as a humbucker or using either single coil. Could someone let me know how to install that so that I can do that or whether it's even possible. I want to limit drilling as much as possible so i was just going to put in a single toggle switch.

Thanks for any advice.

Re: Phase Reversal & Coil Tapping in RG520

use a push/pull pot. it will replace one of your existing pots, either volume or tone. in some instances, both. it will keep you from drilling into the face of your axe and is reversable, whereas permanent.
