Wiring diagram for 2 humbuckers and 1 piezo through a 5 way switch

I am looking to wire 2 double humbuckers with a pre-amped piezo through a 5way switch . Am I going to have to use a super switch to combat bucking ? I am not all that experienced with 5way switches so any help would be appreciated.

There's several ways to do this.

You could wire the piezo in the #1 position, #2 for piezo and bridge HB, #3 for bridge HB, #4 for bridge and neck HB's and #5 for neck HB.

Wire the piezo in the middle #3 position to have piezo only or paired with either HB, but you would'nt get both HB's together.

Wire the piezo in position #5 to pair the piezo with neck HB only and have both HB's together like the first option, just in reverse.

Another option would be to wire both HB's and piezo to 3 on/off mini toggles to get what ever combination you want.

Maybe THIS might help (turn the volume up, though). CHEERS!
