Well, I can tell you what my two Gretschs are going to have done to them, if that helps:

TV Jones Classic Plus in the bridge position, 4 wire

Supertron in the neck

Super tron in the middle

Here is the tricky part:

The neck and bridge humbuckers are going to be wired like the PRS 5T4P rotary switch, except that I am going to use a 6 throw switch so that I can have an off position. The middle humbucker is going to be controlled by a 6 position, 4 pole rotary switch too. The positions will be:

1) Off
2) In series, out-of-phase (humbucking)
3) North pole, start to ground
4) Parallel, out of phase (also humbucking, but with a mellower sound)
5) South pole, finish to ground
6) Parallel in phase

Both of these guitars have Bigsbys. Both have rosewood necks. I am going to put Gotoh 510 tuners on both.
