You may not be able to get them scrunched up so tight with the shape of the baseplate. Might be possible with some careful modification. If you did get it working then making it humbucking would also be a good idea.
DefJef I think that only way should be this. But no idea if this reverse mode can influence sound or magneti field. The main difficulty is that in order to know it I must first carry out a major excavation, but I am considering whether to do it or not, then I would not regret it if I did not like the result obtained, not reversible.
That's definitely got to happen first. Then a good look at the cavity to ensure the room is there or can be made. Turning one horizontally through 180 degrees won't make any difference to the functioning or sound. The electrical and magnetic polarities will have stayed the same (if the magnetic polarity was north facing upwards before, it remains facing upwards after the turn). Getting humbucking will take a bit more testing and fiddling to ensure the two pickups are in phase with themselves and with the bridge pickup.
