Yes but you'll kick yourself when you find a use for a neck pickup!

you would have to put a five way pickup switch to have an active and a passive. and you couldn't run both pups at the same time. learned this a long time ago from Guitar World.

I believe some modding would need to be done because of the impedience difference of the 2 pickups, and since ussually the volume and tone pots are changed for the active pickup.

Maybe get a high output passive?
