How to wire 3 EMGs in a tele???

I have a Tele with an EMG T set in it. The standard controls and all. The guitar has a rout for a 3rd pickup and I'd love to put a middle EMG in. How do i wire this up without changing too much on the control plate./ All pickups are active. thanks guys.

I too am adding a 3rd to my EMG-T Tele Set, not in a gultar right now. I just got a Ceramic Strat Active and a 5 way to add the middle to the EMG-Ts. These are going in a pine Jame Burton style body I am making. The gold on black paisley, but with a cloth I have picked out. Mine will have the Tele EMG Bridge ala G.E. Smith instead of the Strat bridge on the Real JB Tele.
