So basically you're looking to wire it like a Jag? If you don't have any experience soldering guitar electronics i recommend researching heavily before doing so. Watch youtube tutorials, read other peoples' experiences, get as educated and informed as you can before touching the instrument.

Jaguar wiring schemes aren't overly complicated, but they can be difficult to read off a diagram and will take a good amount of time to complete. It will be quite a challenge to do properly with good quality if you're new to soldering and wiring. It would be fairly conventional with just 2 pickups, but with 3, you're looking at a real potential wrench in the works. It goes from having about 12 points of soldering to do from scratch to over 30 depending on how many parallel/out of phase/series wiring setups you'd like to do.

thought you strat heads would like this. my partscaster in action! An mim body (took so long to find a white body honestly) with the very first pickguard i wired up. Bridge is a Kent Armstrong Power Blade, neck is a texas special. Middle is some random fender pickup i got in a small trade. An Affinity neck, scalloped by me from frets 10-22. Since it was the first time i'd ever wired something (with the guiding hand of an engineer friend of mine lol) i ended up with a ****ed up configuration where the 5way pickup switch is entirely backwards, so the normal neck position actually selects the bridge. I think i actually like it better that way since i switch so much between pickups and swiping up towards me is an easier way to get to that screamer bridge pickup.
