    I'm kicking around the idea of routing out my thin line copy to put a P90 in the neck position and then swapping in a rail type humbucker in the bridge.

    I'm a complete novice with guitar wiring but I'm thinking that this diagram would work for what I want:

    I'm wondering if this could be modified somehow to allow phase switching of the humbucker, maybe with another push-pull in place of the volume pot. Anyone have any ideas?

    Yep. That diagram will work and you can do the phase thing with another push-pull. Do you want to put the bridge pickup out of phase with the neck, or the two coils of the bridge pickup out of phase with each other?

    Sweet. I'd like to be able to put the bridge coils out of phase with each other.

    As for the routing option you’re talking about, there a a LOT of pickup winders making great telecaster sized P90s. So, unless you’re jonsong for the soapbar look, you could save yourself a lot of hassle by getting a T90 pickup for the neck.

    Here's what I did and it's sick. Bareknuckles Pig90 neck and VHII Hb bridge. I used a 5 way super switch with a plate from Rock Rabbit with an angled pickup selector slot. Not terribly complicated but the switch is pretty snug.
