Lightbulb Unique 2 Hum, 1 vol, 1 tone, 5 way wiring

I'm wiring Duncan '59 and DiMarzio Steve's Special in my mahogany Ibanez RG520. I'd like to have combination like this or similar [but don't know how ] :

59 is in the neck
SS is in the bridge

1. 59 hum
2. 59 single
3. 59 hum, SS single
4. 59 single, SS hum
5. SS hum

3. and 4. position can switch their places if that make wiring combination easier. I read somewhere that DiMarzios and Duncans are out of phase. On what should i pay attention?

Please help with your opinions.
Thanks!

I think you might try getting push-pull pots to split the humbuckers, and you'd be fine with a 3 way switch (which would add 59Hum/SSHum sound, also).

That solution can be a problem playing live, it takes much more time.

you can get one of those new Fender knobs where the top of the knob is a button.
