I am thinking of modding a strat with a bypass switch (like neil young has on 'Old Black')
so that i can bypass all the volume and tone controls and send the signal straight from the pick ups to the jack.

I was thinking of putting an on-on mini switch in between the selector switch & the volume but if possible i would like to bypass the switch as well.

The diagram i am basing it off is

Any ideas on how i would wire this to work for all pickups or would i need a switch for each pickup?

1 - You can do this with just one switch.

2 - The switch must be a DPDT. Either a minitoggle, or a push-pull on one of the pots.

3 - You can decide before you design the wiring,
if you want to have just one specific pickup bypassing the 5-way and the pots.
OR
if you want whatever is selected by the 5-way bypassing the pots.

Whats the difference between using a DPDT or a SPDT?

A DPDT is like 2 SPSTs in the same package, operated by the same lever.
Six terminals, instead of 3.
