Dimarzio Model J wiring help needed

    Hello Everyone,

    I'm interested in upgrading my stock bass pickups to a set of Dimarzio model J's.
    It's is my understanding that because of the split coil nature of these pickups they cancel hum and can be wired in series individually.

    So I was really curious if the following wiring setup is possible:

    Master volume, Blend, Master tone,
    and a 4 way rotary switch with
    pos 1: both pickups in parallel
    pos 2: both pickups in series
    pos 3: neck in series, bridge in parallel
    pos 4: neck in parallel, bridge in series

    If this is indeed possible I'd greatly appreciate any insight on what kind of rotary switch would be ideal, after doing some research I see the 5 and 6 position switches are most common. I'd also love to know how to wire this.
    If someone already has such a schematic I'd love to see it.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this
