    Thats close artie but your diagram splits select either both north coils or south coils. In order to select one north and one south you'll need to at least swap the hot and ground on one of the sides of the dpdt on the right side. Then to get inner/outer you need to rotate the neck pickup 180 degrees in its mount.

    I'm not a big fan of rotating pickups in their mounts but in this case its nessessary for true inner/outer.

    This will be easy enough to change, I just have to think about it a sec, to make sure I get it right. Revised drawing forthcoming.

    Robert, double-check me here, but I think its just a matter of doing this small change:

    You can't (don't want to) flip the magnet because that will throw the normal #2 position out of phase. Cross wiring the pickup will also do this.

    Arties new schematic is dead on now. One pickup shorts to ground and the other shorts to hot at the same time. Rotating the neck pickup will now get you inner and outer and also be hum cancelling. Its not absolutely nessessary but the farther the coils are apart (as well as closer in the inner position), the more dramatic the difference in tone will be between the two split choices.

    Thank you Brother Artie!

    Thanks, and you're quite welcome. This whole PRS wiring, and magnet flipping, and rotating pups things, is one of those areas where I have trouble wrapping my "logic" around.
