What would be the pros and cons to having two humbuckers with a single coil pickup in between them?

pros: wider variety of tonal possibilities. there are tons of ways you could wire it up.

cons: I can't think of any unless you're the kind of guy that doesn't like having a bunch of controls to fiddle with. even then you could keep it to just a 5 way pickup selector, volume, and maybe a tone knob.

Pros: It's there if you need it.

Cons: It's there if you don't need it.

I like this one. I'm not a 3 pickup guy, but I don't really need 3 so it works out good.

Well you get the sound of a single coil.

This COULD go in the pickup thread though.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
