Sounds so easy when you say it!
Well, maybe I'm off on that, but if I had to wire @DennisC suggestion, it would be a concern to me : since the magnet is common to the 2 coils in the PWT, I wonder how can you manage easily to have the required in-phase, non-humbucking operation of the 2 coils (in order to electrically separate them, one for each T90) with a pickup which was not designed for that at the start...
If the 2 T90 are RWRP, then it will be OK : you will just have to couple the right PWT coils with the right T90 in order to respect the in-phase, RWRP humbucking operation expected in the serial mode. Otherwise, one of the "serialized" pickup will be out-of phase (special thin sound) or non-humbucking between its two coil.
Well it's a matter of tests, and after all, maybe the non-humbucking (but compulsorily in-phase) serial association would work fine enough about hum...
Not easy to explain, I must confess...
I'd have the same concern. If they're not one normal and one RWRP, it won't work out that simple.
At TVJ's site I don't find any info on this ... but I'd be a bit surprised if they're not, as this offers hum cancellation in middle position, without sacrificing anything or being more expensive or so, so I don't see any reason not to do it that way.
If they're both of same winding and polarity, though, a custom-made pickup could be the solution. As many of their pickups are built-to-order anyway, this would only have one downside in needing to buy another pickup.
2 switches, binary choices.
That seems too logical & easy to remember on the user end.
Though it does seem like literally on-off.
Is more electrical & logic nuance innvolved?
... did it go well?
