Les Paul wiring question

OK, let 's say I have a Les Paul, two humbuckers with four wires.
Is there a wiring kit with these possibilities :
Rythm = neck humbucker
Middle = both pickups split, so two singles
Lead = bridge humbucker
Not something too exotic or silly, but I haven' t found it yet...

A regular three way toggle switch won't do this. You'd need a 3-way blade super switch or something else exotic. If you are going for easy and cheap, look for a regular push/pull tone pot circuit that splits the coils when you pull up. That will be the most simple option.

This diagram shows two, but they only use one side of each switch. You can put those wires on both sides of a single push/pull and coil cut together. Then you just need to figure out which North or South coils you like best. I found that it's best to put push/pull on tone pot duty since a volume pot will wear out much faster due to higher use and abuse, an easier replacement repair when the volume wears out.

Thanks for that !
I was aware of the possibility to use push/pull knobs, but my question was more about a whole circuit replacement with this wiring, period,
