Was looking at my amp the other day with its two separate sets of inputs/controls and thought why are the pickups made to work together when they could be run independent of each other into the two sides of the amp with tone set separately at the amp? or through two different amps? Separate pedals, volumes, etc. I watched a video someone posted about independent volume controls not being such a great idea in a Les Paul with two humbuckers and no master volume pot. But if each pickup were wired separately with two outputs from the guitar (stereo?), wouldn't that open up a whole new world of tone freedom? or maybe it's a dumb idea and it's just my turn to throw it out there so I can be flamed for my ignorance? it's entirely possible.
