Default guitar pickup fading

Well I'm sure that quite a few people here know how to wire a guitar... so here goes.

One of my friends is trying to wire his dual pickups weird in his strat.
Were confused as to what to do.


He wants this : Neck on all the time then fades to neck and bridge in paralell,

then after that something to make them be wired in series
bleh this is confusing!

Maybe we should just add a fader pot betwen the two and somehow wire up a switch to change from series to paralell?

any thoughts would be greatly appreciated

Yes, its work good.

In parallel mode pot regulates general volume,
in series mode pot regulates only bridge pkup volume.

alright! Hmmm... now to make it work in both paralell and series.. what I need to do now is be able to make the one pot fade in paralell instead of acting as a volume controll...
