    It's the same as for guitar. Volume pot is going post-switch (1-in, 2-out, 3-ground+ it's own shell). For switch I can't remember but it's exactly the same as guitar 3-way switch for humbuckers and depends on what kind 3way switch you have.

    Oh by the way you should have humbucker pickups in series (if you have 4 wires, the color code is depending on manufacturer) - in the end, you need 2 wires from both (unless you make coil split which goes before pickup switch) - ground wire goes to ground and signal goes to switch.
    If you have a simple 3-pin switch then both pickup wires go to sides and middle goes to the volume pot.
