  2. It's probably a series/parallel switch for the bridge pickup.

    Do you have a picture of the wiring?

    Since it's labeled on the picture as "Rear PU Coil Sprit Switch", it would appear to be just like a Lakland 4-94. The bridge pickup is a dual-coil PUP. That little toggle switch selects the neck coil, both coils, or the bridge coil of the humbucker. It's simple and easy to check as well. Solo the bridge PUP (use the blend control rolled all the way back to only the bridge PUP). Then take a small screwdriver or something else ferrous, and tap the pickup where the coils of that PUP would be. With the switch all the way towards the neck, you'll only get a loud "thunk" out of the coil closest to the neck. With the switch in the middle you'll get it out of both coils, and with the switch to the rear, you'll only get the bridge coil.
