Yup. It changes the tone a little bit, similar to Strat middle pickup (using a Sunrise).

It doesn't sound bad, just different, with a few more available harmonics - the default position on the guitar it’s in partially cancels out the 5th-fret (1/4 scale length) harmonic. Looks weird but works fine as long as the polepieces are adjusted to manage the B string, which is hot. I preferred the tone in the ‘normal’ position, and moved it back - it’s a little fatter and darker, like the neck pickup on an archtop.

Not sure how it would work with other mags, bit it’d be worth a try....
