Dear Telecaster Legends
I'm wanting a wiring diagram for 2 pickup Telecaster (1-Volume, 1-Tone). Humbucker (B) Single Coil (N) Telecaster with 5 way Super Switch to give the following auto-split bridge coil configuration positions 2,3 and 4. I don't want to use a push/pull switch in this case:

1] Bridge Humbucker Full
2] Bridge Single Coil AS (AutoSplit)
3] Bridge Single Coil AS + Neck SC Parallel
4] Bridge Single Coil AS + Neck SC Series
5] Neck Single Coil

I've searched all over for this wiring (Seymour Duncan, DiMarzio, SixSTring Supplies, Guitar Electronics, Toneshapers among many others) and cannot find it. I can find wiring that is close. The 4-way is good but it doesn't offer position 2 as above split bridge coil on its own. Has anyone done this wiring or come across a wiring diagram for this configuration? Many thanks!

I stumbled upon this post today so I took a stab at it. You may have resolved this by now.

Disclosure: I’ve never wired a super switch and have no knowledge of an auto switch pickup.

I based my diagram on a 4 wire humbucker.

By auto split I assume you are just meaning a coul split without a push pull?

I do quit a few Single humbucker combo teles. I preach it all the time but the Schaller Megaswitch series of switches are top of the line and versatile. My go to is the M model but have use others as well. I would suggest looking thru their HS configuration options.
