Wiring a 12/6 doubleneck - help please !

I know there are some very good wiring guys here and im hoping you can help me.
I want to wire a doubleneck as elegantly as possible (not with a million knobs and switches) using one output jack...
ive researched using a megaswitch but TBH this is a bit beyond me...
I want to use standard 5 way split coil wiring for both necks and all the pups will be EVO's...

thanks in advance.

The easiest option would be a 3 way switch to select necks, that way you'd have two 5 ways, one for reach neck and one 3 way to select necks. Would this be acceptable? Other options would be more complicated! I can give you a schematic if you like.

What Vim is describing is what I would do as well and can be done with a mini on/on/on switch or a LP style toggle. Both kinds of switch are available from most music stores or stewmac.com
