to the forums. Yes, we can always use more contributors here, so jump on in whenever you're ready.
You'll need to be a bit more specific about what you're trying to accomplish. F'rinstance, what kind of guitar are you trying to modify? It sounds like you're dealing with a Strat style guitar, but we should be sure of our facts before we take off on this.
Also, don't be surprised if a Moderator (I'm not one) moves this thread to the appropriate forum.

John Atchley explains how to do this, pretty well on the Guitarnuts site:
you have your choice of doing a neck-on, or bridge-on switch.
the drawing he has:
shows a DPDT switch. that could either be a push-pull pot or a mini-toggle.
let's say it was a mini-toggle.
with the wiring shown, the neck pickup would be on whenever the toggle lever was up.
if you use a SPDT that will be easy to figure out, since the switch will look like just the left half of the switch in the drawing.
if you use a SPST switch, you'll only have 2 terminals. no confusion on which ones to use. only on which way the switch needs to be turned, so that the lever is in the position you want, when the switch is on.
