That's the best advice. Sometimes you have to combine bits of one drawing with bits from another.
Start with this drawing:
EXCEPT - on the six lugs of the push/pull switches, you want to substitute in the wiring for series/parallel instead of tapping FOR EACH PICKUP, from this diagram:
I tend to wire directionally (pickup -> x -> x -> output) to keep myself on track, as DiMitri says in this case it means wiring the six lugs first. Sometimes for practical reasons you have to connect things out of order, if it's confusing it's easiest to carefully re-make one single drawing with only the wiring you're actually going to need pictured.
Seymour Duncan has their own pickup wire color scheme, as do each of the other companies - it's almost like they're trying to be perverse. No, they ARE trying to be perverse. :evil4: However, you can convert any one color plan to another with this:
For me it's a lot easier to be careful and write out
the color conversions initially than try to do it in my head as I'm soldering
- I know my limits. If you do it all wrong and have to backtrack, besides the waste of time you'll be really mad and you won't have a guitar to strangle and howl with.
P.S. (Here's another color code list: http://www.stewmac.com/freeinfo/Electronics/Color_codes.html. I've found it agrees with the first one, but you can check your individual pickups too).
P.S.S. ( Here's two more sources of diagrams: http://www.tdpri.com/resources.htm XXX http://www.guitar-mod.com/rg_diagrams.html XXX If you go through and bookmark the parent directories of all of the above into a single folder - Stew-Mac, Seymour Duncan, Guitar Electronics, Rothstein, also DiMarzio and Ibanez have diagrams - you'll know all you need to. http://www.ibanez.com/support/wiringdiagrams.aspx XXX DiMarzio you have to select a pickup model and then go on - http://www.dimarzio.com/ )
