I'm rewiring my bass a bit. Right now, I have a P-bass pup and a Bartolini humbucker (4 conductors) wired into three volumes (P-pup and one for each Bartolini coil) and a master tone. I'm swapping the P-pup for another Bartolini (also 4 conductors) and I'd like to go for 1 volume, 1 tone, and 1 blend/balance controls. I looked on guitarelectronics.com and found this:

It's more or less what I'm going for, but how would having more conductors on each pickup affect how I wire it?

Two of the wires will be soldered and taped together.
One wire will go to the balance control.
The remaining two will be grounded.

I can probably dig up a colour code for you, if you need it.

A color code would be awesome.

I got it. If I run each pickup through a DPTT switch (Parallel HB/SC/Series HB) I'll end up with a hot and ground wire for each pickup anyway, so I can use the diagram in the OP with the balance pot. No one sees a problem with this, right?

Yes, it would appear so. So just pretend the bridge pickup is a DPDT on/on/on switch.
