help please!can any one suggest a wiring diagram for this tele wiring please

i have a telecaster (copy) and i need a diagram for this 1 volume,1 tone , a regular single coil in the neck positions and a mini rail hum bucker for the bridge .the problem with the other diagrams is that they all show the 'real" tele style pickup selector when in fact the one in my guitar has all those soldering points on one side, not half on one side one on the other if that makes sense.

my selector switch is more of a modern generic start copy style of selector than a telecaster one. it is a modern strat style one if that makes sense .u know those five way ones? it looks like this but its a three way. sorry that probably doesn't make sense

the pickup i want to put in is a GUITARHEADS mini rail hum bucker off ebay ( item number 310571080651)






thanks and sorry if this doesn't make much sense

for the bridge pickup two of the 4 conducting leads will have to be soldered together (not sure which ones in this case), unless you want to split the pickup with another switch

I usually get my wiring diagrams from the Seymour Duncan website. Especially when using a humbucker, since he makes so many of them for Teles. It might be tough to find a single-coil neck bridge hummer diagram on the Fender site.
