    To make a Sims Super Quad-style PuP, could I essentially wire 4 "2 string" PuPs and position them like:

    (<N> & <S> indicate polarity)

    <neck>
    <N><N>
    <S><S>
    <Bridge>


    or


    <neck>
    <N><S>
    <S><N>
    <Bridge>

    And control the 4 with a set of DPDT switches?

    Just getting into pickup science and I am probably in over my head...

    Would there need to be some staggering/overlap laterally (a la P split PuP)?

    Something like:

    <neck>
    [N1][--N2]
    [S1--][S2]
    <Bridge>

    So that if I have N2 + S1, I get a P split
    If all 4, I get a Humbucker
    If N1 + N2 or S1 + S2 I get a J Single (possibly behaving as a split coil single)
    tnx
