Right, I'm pretty good at understanding wiring diagrams, but i find it hard trying to piece together multiple diagrams and visualise how they work and if they're do-able together, especially when getting loads of contrasting information. I'm wiring a strat with a hot rail in the bridge so its pretty much HSS.

What I'm aiming for:

1- Coil split on the hot rail (just on and off is fine, not fussed about having a three way switch)

2- Neck always on switch (for bridge and neck combinations as well as all three pickups together)

3- 1 tone for the bridge humbucker and the other tone for the two single coils

If anyone could give me some advice on how to go about doing this, that would be amazing. I've used the features on different guitars but wanted to try an all in one for versatility. Also, I've got a load of SPDT switches (the ones with two legs) so if i can use them, that would be great.

Thanks guys

Im using the 5 way selector switch that came with the strat with 8 lugs. I have the SPDT switches left over from a previous project and was just wondering if i could use them up

Here's the diagram. Not complicated at all. My computer doesn't work so this is the best I can do.

As shown, the slug coil is active when the bridge pup is split. If you get an out-of-phase sound with the neck or middle pups when the bridge pup is split, rewire it so that the screw coil is active:

If you have a traditional Strat switch:
