    would it be ok to swap my Fender Pure Vintage ‘65 middle pickup (non rwrp) in with my Fat 50’s set (neck and bridge)?

    i’m pretty sure the answer is: why certainly!

    just want to be sure.

    Some Fender sets were RWRP, some weren't.
    Just gotta try it.

    Yes. They're both non-RWRP and same wind/polarity.

    I added a Fat 50s bridge to an AVRI 62 Strat set with no problem. Bit more fatness and output on bridge only but otherwise negligible.

    (the Fat 50’s set is rwrp; the PV 65 isn’t.)

    Using a PV65 middle with a F50s neck and bridge should be all the same polarity, so all wired the same. If that results in POS 2 and 4 being out of phase, just reverse the two PV65 wires.

    if your guitar is not one of those decrepit guitars that's worth a gazillion dollars, sure why not?
    a nice set of hum canceling pickups from Dimarzio might be a nice touch. Larry and his crew make some really special pickups.
