Not as far as I'm aware, because I think each position on a five way is linked to a different piece of the circuit and there are connections between each of them. I knew someone who tried to see if they could do this and in the end just bought a five way selector instead, which worked out much cheaper than fiddling around with bits of circuitry.

so if he bought a 5-way selector, does that mean he had to drill a hole in between bridge and neck pup for the middle pup? cuz the way i understand it, there has to be 3 pups to have a 5-way selector. am i right?
