Coil Tap Results

Over last weekend, I went and installed a coil-split on my guitar using a push/pull potentiometer. Here are the results between flipping from the full output of the humbucker to the more nuanced and snappy single coil pickup. There’s a ton of info out there you can find just by using Google but, the best place to start in my opinion is GuitarElectronics.com, where you can fin all the parts you need and so many schematics and diagrams its insane, whether you have 1, 2 or 3 pickups, you can find a mod for them.
