    If you have a four-conductor output, then yes.

    Otherwise, you will have to rewire the coils at the pickup itself.

    sure, (stock 'ray pickups are indeed 4-wire) and it sounds pretty cool, different from the series setting on a sterling.

    For a switch, or for permanent wiring?

    For permanent series wiring, the south coil - lead gets grounded, the south coil + and north coil - leads connect together, and the north coil + lead is the hot.

    For a DPDT switch:

    Bringing this one back from the dead to see if anyone has wired their Stingray pup in series (permanent style)? I just bought a SUB Sterling and even though it's a Sterling the pickup is wired parallel.
