Triple shot on top bucker?

I was wondering if I could put a seymour duncan triple shot on the top bucker of a custom jem. I think I could mod it to fit. Has anyone done this yet. I would love to see a pic if they have (to instil cofidence). Thanks for anyhelp in advance.

That thing?

Looks like it'd be an direct fit if you don't have a pickguard to contend with.

Silly me, forgot the fretboard goes right to the neck p/u cavity.

If I were to install one of these, I'd probably cut off everything but the "top" part where the controls are. there should be plenty of room to run the wiring under the pickups.

Or you could just install a little toggle switch anywhere and do something like this:
