Jem Jr with H/S/S, possible?

Would it be possible to install a pickguard with a Humbucker & 2 single coils in a Jem Jr, instead of a Humbucker, single coil, humbucker?

Is there a downside to this? The guitar being routed for a humbucker in the neck.

Would it be better to just buy a single coil in humbucker format, such as the EMG HA for neck position, instead?

Will peobably install actives in it

Yes the body route allows a single or humbucker but you'd need a new pickguard to convert it neatly to SSH. Of course you could just wire the neck humbucker as a single coil (or parallel) and change nothing assuming the PU is 4-wire.

Limiting tone & sound possibilities.
