Single humbucker coil tap using on/on DPDT switch + killswitch

Anyone know how to wire a single humbucker to an on/on dpdt mini toggle switch (up position = single coil, down position = humbucker)?

Also, how would I then wire it to another on/on dpdt mini toggle switch to act as a killswitch (up position = signal off, down position = signal on)?

If it helps with diagrams etc this humbucker will be connected also to a volume pot and tone pot. Nothin else.

Any help with any of this would be great!
Cheers

Pretty much any wiring diagram with a push/pull coil split will do(p/p is a DPDT). And as for the killswitch, just attach it to the hot lead right before it goes to the output jack. Make one position complete the circuit(on), and the other one ground it(off).

Here's a diagram that shows you how your switch works(only pay attention to the on/on switch):

Awesome, cheers! I'll see if I can make do with different diagrams for the entire setup... I've also got a strip piezo to go under the bridge saddle which I need to work out how to wire up to a blend pot
