Help wiring 5-way switch (GFS Pickups)

So the set of GFS lil' killers, and pre-wired pick guard I ordered showed up today.

I want to get them wired up, and in my strat ASAP, but I'm a little confused about the wiring of the 5-way switch. I haven't seen one like this before.

Anyways, here are some pics:



So where do I connect each pickup wire?

I know:

red and white get twisted together and capped off - No coil-tap...yet

Black and Silver are ground and go to ground of 1st pot

Green is hot, and goes to 5-way switch, but where?

Any help would be awesome. I'm just itching to try these out


Cheers,

SP

So I think I may have figured it out..

does this look right?



The green wires on the 5-way (from pickups) are (from right to left) bridge, middle and neck

I just gotta finish shielding my strat, and I can test it out
