Actually just use this but pretend the pups are the coils of a single humbucker. http://www.guitarelectronics.com/product/WD2HH3T12_00/Guitar-Wiring-Diagam-w-2-Humbuckers3-Way-Toggle-Switch1-Volume2-Tones.html

This arrangement has the coils in parallel, though. Still cancels hum, but not quite as much output as a standard series-connection. It also won't sound quite as dark.

You can't have 2 volumes if the coils are in series.

Also, switch wiring: http://static---guitarelectronics.app-hosted.com/media/img/guitarelectronics/-/diagrams/wiring_mods/3way_toggle_switch_terminal_cross_refrence

Sorry man. It's late and my brain isn't working.

What if we make them separate connections and then parallel output out?
Maybe using diodes to prevent shorts.

Paralleling the pots' outputs will still have the pickups (their signals) in parallel. Diodes will only half-wave rectify the signal. The negative part of the signal will be clipped off and only the positive half will remain, assuming the voltage is even high enough to overcome the forward threshold of the diode, which it probably won't be for standard types.

There's no way around it, man.

If you're wanting to use the volumes to blend the coils, you could try a spin-a-split. There's a diagram on Seymour Duncan's website.
