If you like the single coil sound, don't forget to put in a switch that shorts the red/green pair to ground.
The 705 makes a guitar sound almost like a ten string Tele when in single coil mode.

Here is a diagram I drew up for 710 with split coil wiring. If you have 705s that split this will be the same.

The 705 also has a green wire: tie it to the red (if you don't, it won't work; the red is the end of one coil and the green the end of the other), and either isolate it or put it on the other side of a switch to ground.
