FLO - Weird pickup config on her

I might have been seeing things, but from the back of the Ritz, did I see that Flo has a bridge humbucker, then some combo of the neck humbucker and a sustainer all crammed up against the neck? *A total of 5 coils in a 2+3 arrangement like a HH guitar.
Was I just seeing things? *It was AWFULLY hot in there.

Steve as a humbucker in the bridge, a single coil in the middle, and a sustainer in the neck position. *I believe there is a dummy coil on the neck bottom section of the pickup. *If he's using the sustainer system I think he is, it comes with a mini-humbucker pickup... please correct me if I'm wrong.

Im still convinced that what I saw, and Kyle saw it too, was not a HH S HH config, but a custom pickguard with a HH HHS or HH SHH with the neck 3 coils all grouped together and the S being the sustainer in this case. *I swear I didnt see a single in the middle anywhere.

Then if that's the case it's something modified within the last couple weeks. *This modification did not exist at the Houston show. *If anyone has pics, please post or link.

After tonight (front row floor) I can tell you this much, he runs it with a Duracell. *It's a standard H-S-H configuration, with 2 activation toggle switches on it below the trem.
