Wiring for Series/Parallel with Coil Split--Is this possible with my setup? (Diagram)

Hi all, I've been trying to get a working schematic going for months and have been very frustrated with it. I've got an old superstrat SSH with a mini toggle on/off for each pickup. For the humbucker, it's an on/off/on toggle that I'd like to use as series/off/parallel, then I'd also like to be able to coil split with a tone push/pull.

After wiring up according to the first schematic, it is not working as intended. Here is how it is currently working instead.

Can anyone offer some wisdom to get this working? I'm also considering throwing in the towel and using the push/pull as a kill switch instead of coil split to simplify things. Thanks for any input!

Hi, I just noticed this thread. Welcome to the forum!

How about this? Instead of series / off / parallel, and a separate splitter...

One switch does series / split / parallel, and then you use one of your on/off toggles to enable the pickup.

The diagram uses Duncan colors. The ON-ON-ON DPDT is available at StewMac and many other places. Not as a push-pull, though.
