Would This Be Possible?

Would it be possible to have a knob that when you have both neck and bridge selected (presumaby on a guitar with two humbuckers) that would increase the volume between each pickup? Like... roll it one way and it makes the bridge pickup louder while quieting the neck pickup and roll it one way and it makes the neck pup louder while quieting the bridge pup? I know people are thinking "Well on an LP you could just turn the volume of one pickup down" I was just wondering since I never touch my tone knob, if this would be possible, I assume it'd only work if you did infact have it so both humbuckers were on

Sure, it's called a blend pot. You can read about them on the stewmac website:

Click on the instructions tab at the bottom of the page.

With a Les Paul style pickup selector it will be difficult if not downright impossible to get it to work "only" in the both pickup position.
