Pickup wiring help

I am trying to find a wiring diagram for this combo I want to install in my guitar, but to no avail. I have SD '59 (N) and SD Distortion (B) coming in a few weeks, and I want to install them the following way:

I have a 3-way lever switch and a DPDT switch. I want the 3-way one to change between neck-neck+bridge-bridge, so that's pretty much standard. But, I want the DPDT switch (on/on) to change the neck pickup between series and parallel. If it's possible, I want to use the DPDT switch to affect only the neck pickup wiring, while bridge pickup should stay wired in series (default) at all times.
Could someone post the diagram or hook me up with some sort of a link that shows exactly this, because I am not exactly electronics-savvy, more like a total n00b for this sort of stuff, so I couldn't figure it out on my own if my own life would depend on it. Seymour Duncan colors preferred!

Re: Pickup wiring help



Put that in between the neck pickup and switch. Then just wire the bridge pickup straight to the 3-way.

Re: Pickup wiring help

You mean to wire it this way, and then just follow the rest of this schematic ?

Re: Pickup wiring help

Yep, perfect. Your original post sounded like you had everything else figured out except the mini switch. Nice photoshop, I was about to just draw it out until I scrolled down.
