Pickups; Neck mini-humbucker - is this single conductor with shield? Middle - assumed to be two wire like a Strat pickup with no shield. Bridge - assumed to be two wire like a Strat pickup with no shield. Is the bridge a single coil?
You want the following combinations; neck and bridge neck and middle middle and bridge all three together
This is only four combinations.
You state "no phase reversal or parallel"
Do you mean "no parallel" (the way that Strat pickups are normally switched), or "no series"?

Hi Chris thanks for responding.Look I got one mini humbucker and it got wires one black other white.The single coils are kinman boadcaster model for tele.Hum cancelling pickups.I dont know how manny wires they have.I just want to have mini humbucking in the neck alone,neck and middle,middle and bridge,bridge alone,and bridge and neck .I dont know if series or parallel.Please help me.I have the superswitch by fender .I think is the way you said.Its is the one with double 5 way .My guitar is a ASAT classic thinline tele by G&L.Thanks.Sammy
If it is any use, the neck and bridge option can easily be gaind at the cost of one of the 'x' and middle options-
Just switching the output leads of either neck or bridge with the middle one will give the neck and bridge option, but lose the mix between middle and whichever pickup wasn't swapped.
That is how I wired my Nashville Tele, and now I have neck, neck-bridge, bridge, bridge-middle and middle.
Thats not exactly what you asked for, but is an extremely easy and cheap option which will get you much of the way there.
Another choice is to add a switch or push-pull pot to add the neck (or bridge instead) to any selection, leaving the five original options, plus bridge-neck and all three. That, and any other switches, however, are for more the knowledgable electricians here to tell you about far better than I could!
