Something as simple as having two single coils and nothing else is actually pretty rare. Almost nonexistent anywhere I could get one (not that I want to actually.)

Yeah- probably only P90 axes like that, other than Teles.

I think the idea is to get those fatter sounds in positions 2 and 4.

One of the most versatile systems I've seen/used is the Blade VST active tone control system, which I guess is locked up tight in a patent. The guitar has standard pickups with passive volume and tone controls, plus a switchable active tone control on a three-way switch that has bypass, mid-boost and bass-treble boost. The amount of mid, bass and treble can be adjusted by trim pots, I had mine adjusted for fairly small effects. This feeds into the passive controls, so you have passive guitar controls plus switching between three different EQ qualities for the pickups.

it's a USA Fallout .... SS Muscle Car series Fallout in Hugger Orange (based on a 1969 Camaro Z-28 Hugger orange color) .... the SS Muscle series is a bare bones guitar , the come as they ship with not any options other than color from the Muscle Car series ..... a regular Fallout has the full menu options ....... I had this guitar in 5 days from ordering it counting the weekend , had the dealer order locking tuners and they had them installed before I got there to pick it up , locking tuners are not a option on the Muscle car series but the dealer had no problems receiving new locking tuners from G&L , G&L didn't even charge me for them

That's actually my favorite configuration. My 3 favorite guitars, that I own, are a tele copy (2 sc), a Mustang (2 sc) and an lp special copy (2 p90s).

I could probably get by fine with nothing but a good, single coil neck pup. Which seems simple yet possibly the rarest of pup configuration. I can't think of any single, single coil neck pup guitars.

To clarify, you mean a standard singlecoil, right? Not a P90 or the like?

Y might have to go seriously retro, like the Danelectro 3012:
