Default Bass guitar wiring

Hello everyone !
So I decided to mess around a bit with a bass guitar and I purchased a (custom built) preamp and two new pickups.

What I want to do is rather simple :
A pull pot that act as a volume control and as a switch between passive and active.
A pickup selector. (DPDT with middle position)
No tone control, nothing.

The manufacturer supplied me with a simple hand drawn diagram of how to wire the preamp that I reproduced in the first image.
I don't know much about electronics but I tried to come up with a wiring diagram for the features I want.

What do you think about it ? Will it work ?

Thank you !
