You don't control the middle pickup.

1vol n 1tone for the bridge 1vol n 1tone for the neck and the middle is a combination of what you have the others set to

3 Volume, 1 tone.

And remember you could always open it up and make it do whatever you want.

Why don't you test each knob with each pickup to see which is volume for what.

it might sound that reasonable, but it's wrong.

wrong, but way closer than the three volume idea.

sorry dude, i DON'T guess when it comes to things like this.

if you want to know how it works:

Rhythm position: Neck pickup --> Neck Volume and Tone controls --> output
Middle position: Middle and Bridge pickups --> Bridge Volume and Tone controls --> output
Treble position: Bridge pickup --> Bridge Volume and Tone controls --> output

btw, it takes a special (2 pole) version of the 3-way toggle switch.

so the middle pickup is only used in the middle position?

and what do you mean by a special two pole version of the three way toggle switch?

correct. and the neck pickup is only used in the rhythm position.

the only pickup used in 2 different positions is the bridge pickup.
that's used in both the treble and middle positions.

this is what a right-angle 3-way for an SG looks like:
