Need help wiring 3rd pickup into switch on Les Paul Custom

Recommended Posts

I have a 1970s Les Paul Custom.  The guitar was missing it's center pickup.  I bought a 1970's T top humbucker.  I want to wire it back, into the switch.

Where should each lead be soldered?

The pickup wires are green, white and black


The switch has three prongs on one side with red / ground/ clear filling each of them.

And it has two prongs on the other side, pushed together and has black attached to it.

Where should I solder the green / white / black pickup wires?

Thanks for your help
