Thanks

Man, I wish they still had a link to a manuals section. I think there may be a more current set of diags.
But a descriptive update to that 1 linked -
With the 4-conductor p/up leads, you wire White + Green where it currently indicates White.
Also, with the current 5-way, the lugs are thus:
Bridge, Mid, Neck, Common /then side B or 2/ Common, Bridge, Mid, Neck

For my build, I used the Schaller Megaswitch E to get some pseudo humbucker combinations with the split bridge pickup
