Both of my guitars are CE24s. One has a 5-way rotary and the other has a 3-way toggle with a push/pull tone knob for splitting the coils. I guess I'm in the minority in that I prefer the ergonomics of the rotary over the 3-way. Plus, I like the in between sounds (positions 7 & 9) on the 5-way. However, I do also like the split sounds of the neck and bridge pickups by themselves, which I can't get on the 5-way.

Does anyone have any suggestions about how I might be able to wire the guitar with the 5-way rotary so that I can also get the bridge split by itself, as well as the neck split by itself? Would replacing the tone pot with a push/pull pot somehow make this possible? If it makes a difference, I use all of the positions on the rotary except for the middle one, so if that one had to go I'd be fine with it. I'd prefer not to do anything irreversible, but not completely opposed to it. I'm comfortable with a soldering iron, but never really grasped how the wiring actually works, so I'm a "solder-by-numbers" guy. Thanks for any help you guys can give.

Here's a gratuitous shot of my guitars. On the left is a 2001 and on the right is my favorite, a 1997. Both currently have DiMarzio 36th Anniversary PAFs in them. Note the custom rubber band mod on the rotary for extra grip. The rubber band was specially selected to match the maple binding.
