Wiring Diagram Help

Hi, I am going to be putting a single coil and a humbucker into my project, and I just designed this schematic using guitarelectronics.com. It is supposed to have a 3 way toggle that selects either the single, the hum, or both (just like the standard Paul). But also I was thinking it might be nice to have the single coil tone but with hum canceling so I added the coil tap in there. First of all, does every thing check out, and also will it be humcanceling at all or would I have to change the phase on the tapped hum.

Thanks lovekraft, its all in the planning stages, but I want to get started so bad I've been figuring all this stuff out now. I am limited with the cash flow, being 16, I need money for car insurance and im not working enough hours to begin with. Not to mention I need to buy tools cause my dad is the exact opposite of a handiman. well sorry for the rant, I'm tired.

Good catch, Sambo - I didn't even notice it was an ON-OFF-ON switch. :D

If you wire an ON-ON switch exactly the same way, it wll work as planned. A kill switch should just short the hot side of the output jack to ground - a simple SPST ON-OFF will work .

THanks you guys so much for the help. I have looked through the forum and the mian page but I have not found a site that explains wiring swithches in detail, i only got min from a site that showed how to wire but not why. i would like to be able to figure out how to wire my own switches, so if you have any sites that explain it or if you can that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again for all the help.
