What Will This Wiring Diagram Do?

Hey there, I am trying to sort out what kind of wiring I am going to employ in my current build. The guitar is a semi-hollow body (maple top & back, mahogany sides) I got myself a LR Baggs fixed (non-tremolo) piezo-electic bridge. I also have 2 Seymour Duncam Jazz pickups.

I was thinking about a switching arrangement that gives me the PRS options I have in my last build. however, I read on SD's website, that I have to take apart one of my pickups and revese th bar magnet in it. That sounded like a definite detour...so I was thinking instead of using an arrangement like this...

Only thing is I am not sure what the two push-pulls will do in this arrangement. I am ssuming I will get bridge hum, neck hum, & bridge/neck (parallel) with the 3 position switch. will the push pulls split coils or blend or what?

sorry for the dumb question. I figured I'd sort out the magnetics first and then deal with the piezo/magnetics options.

I might end up making some choices by the amount of real estate I have inside the cavitiy. I may not have room for a push pull, maybe Iam limited to mini-switches galore!

Thanks Jeff,

So if I were to draw a logic diagram for this: I'd get

3 way Switch Pos. | Push/pull vol | push pull tone |

left...............................push................push .............Full Neck humbucker

center .........................push..................push ............Neck/Bridge parallel

right.............................push ................push ...............full bridge humbucker

left...............................pull ................push ............red-white coil neck pickup

center..........................pull ................push ........... red white coil /full bridge in parallel

right ............................pull............... push .............full bridge again?

left................................pull.................pull .............. red-white coil neck PU

center ...........................pull................ pull............... both pickups red white coils in parallel

right..............................pull ................pull ............. red white coil bridge PU

And the whole time the volume and tone pots stay Volume and Tone is that about right?

Bump!

Ok so I don't think I would have room in my hollowed cavity for a push-pull pot. I saw a pic in Newark and they are huge!, Anyway I was wondering if I used a DPDT On-OFF-On mini-switch as a substitute for the push-pull pot, wired exactly as shown in the SD link in the original post. Would I get the same functionality?

Did I get the functions even remotely close? Anyone? ...Anyone?.... Ferris.....Ferris Beuhler?

:D

while I'm at all this question asking, why use two pus pulls at all why not do it the way shown here:

http://www.seymourduncan.com/support/schem...v_1t_3w_1pp.pdf

is it different? and why are there two empty contacts? If I use a 3 way switch its a bit different than a push pull since it will have 3 positions. So why does the push pull pot have 6 contacts anyway? I havent been able to find a schematic for a push pull pot. Silly isnt it?
