yes, a 1980's Schecter humbucker wired to a 3 way mini switch and then direct to the input on the vol control, in phase/off/out of phase on the switch. Has some good usable tones, especially fattening up the bridge pickup in phase, bass cut in position 2 out of phase, twin humbuckers in position 4. Not much use for it with the neck pickup alone but does give a fat stratty sound in phase. Seymour Duncan Donahue pickup in the bridge and Alnico II in the neck makes it possible as they are both fairly low output. No load tone control mainly used in humbucker settings also helps.
