I don't have any experience with drawing up wiring diagrams, so i was wondering if anybody could help me out. I need a diagram for a guitar with 2 passive humbuckers, 1 volume and 1 tone knob, and a five way switch.

I need the switch wired:
1st pos - bridge pickup
2nd pos - bottom coil of bridge pickup
3rd pos - both pickups
4th pos - neck pickup
5th pos - top coil of neck pickup

If anyone can help me it would be greatly appreciated.

I wanna see it painted black, painted black
Black as night, black as coal
I wanna see the sun, blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it painted, painted, painted, painted black

Take a look at http://www.guitarelectronics.com/ They have many different wiring diagrams, there's one similar to what you want but you'll have to change the position of one of the wires to get those exact positions.
