I have. I have a weird setup. I don't like toggles or slide switches on my main guitar so I have a three-way toggle between my tone and volume knobs, and then a push-pull on my tone knob. When the tone is pulled, the bridge is on by itself. When the tone is pushed, the three-way toggle goes Neck+Bridge, then Neck, then Neck+Bridge Series. I switch between Neck and Neck+Bridge Series for most of the night, since I play lead. Parallel is a better rhythm tone. The series tone is very smooth, very warm, and gets excellent overdrive into a gain channel. It gets you into that smooth humbucker range but without the mud or icepick. If I have to compare it to another sound, though, I would say that it sounds quite like a neck P90, but noiseless.
