i'm pretty sure they do, or did up until a few years ago, as a custom shop model. I don't remember wheter it was Townshend or Frampton, but one of them used a 3 hum LP.

LP's are pretty nice, but as Lord noted, I'm too much of a doublecut junky. The Epi SG Les Paul Custom has the same exact electronics, but the SG shape; I'd go for that more.

When I get my custom jazzmaster, i'm having 3 pups put in. I was leaning toward a hum-sing-sing, but now I'm leaning toward a hum-minihum-minihum config. Not sure yet. But with those three humbucker positions, you could also get your own himbuckers and put a different type in each position to get a SERIOUSLY wide range of tones... like something with lots of drive and chunk for blues or rock in the bridge, a more clean, transparent pickup for the mid, and something that's got a really warm, vintage-ish tone, like a '59 PAF, for the neck, for jazz and such. And then add a coil tap to get single coil tone.


Maybe, i'll check into it, but can you give me a link, i can't find it on any guitar sites.
