Anyone point me in the right direction to get a simple wiring diagram for a single humbucker guitar with a on/on mini switch that will simply switch between single coil and humbucker mode? It's probably simple, but I don't know how to do it.

Here you go: http://www.seymourduncan.com/support/wiring-diagrams/schematics.php?schematic=1hum_1vol_1tone_split
Although what might be even cooler is a north coil/humbucker/south coil on/off/on switch like this: http://www.**********************/product/WD1H10_03/Guitar-Wiring-Diagram-1-Humbucker1-VolumePull-for-South-Single-Coil.html
Or even cooler would be a series/split/parallel switch: http://www.seymourduncan.com/support/wiring-diagrams/schematics.php?schematic=ssp

Perfect. Thanks! Never really liked the sound of parallel. That might be interesting to do north coil, south coil and series though. I wonder if there would be too much of a sound difference between north and south coils. I already have an on/on switch though, so I'm going to be series/south coil.

That seymour duncan diagram is for a push pull pot. The underside of a mini switch looks just like that though. Do you think that the wiring is all the same?

Yes, the mini switch will work electrically the same way as the pull switch.

So I followed this diagram and it worked beautifully. I have a single humbucker axe with a 2 way mini switch for humbucker and single coil. However, it is the north coil that remains on when in single coil mode. What could I have done differently so have it be the south coil that remains on instead?

Actually, scratch that. I altered that diagram and did this:
