    With the humbuckers you'll probably want 500K pots for volume and tone, and a 0.022uF cap. 250K pots will mean you lose more highs even on 10 so the hummies will typically sound darker than...

    The two tones make things a little tricky as most configs will give you an overlap of the tones in the middle position. That is, when in the middle with all three pickups on, both tone controls are...

    You need a 5-way lever switch if you want the standard Strat style wiring for the three pickups. Or, are you wanting to use a 3-way switch with some other configuration?
