Can one combine Vintage Noiseless with standard SCs?

    I have a '50s Classic 1999 MIM that came with some unknown stock single coils. I put in a set of Vintage Noiseless to get quieter results while recording on a digital system. They work fine for that, and I hate to give up the humbucker functionality, but I prefer the single coil tones.

    Can I combine the two with a VN in the middle and SCs in the bridge and neck, or some such arrangement?

    When I had the VNs put in by my guitar tech, I was told that the VNs need to go in as a set due. Is this true?

    The reverse polarity/reverse wound approach seems the best of both worlds. If that is the case, which Fender rp/rw set is best?

    I'm not looking to buy a new set of pups unless there is no other solution.
