    Don't know much about wiring but could I put this pickup in A lakie 5502 with a switch that would work like this:
    1). Neck pu single coil & top half of the bigman for a 60's jazz tone
    2) neck pu single coil & bottom half of the bigman for a 70's jazz tone
    3) no neck pu via switched or with blend---bigman by itself both coils on

    An on-off-on SPDT switch should do it for you! ( Or if you can only find an on-of-on DPDT, you can jsut use one side of it.)

    One thing to note is that either option 1 or option 2 won't hum cancel with the neck pickup

    I was thinking that like a standard jazz config--option 1&2 would operate similarly with a blend in center detente/or vol/vol in center position

    Yes, but in one of those two modes (don't know which ahead of time but Mo or Carey could tell you) the neck coil won't be reverse wound/reverse polarity with the single coil bigman.
