I'm looking into humbucking pickups that also sound good split. Right now I've got WCR Goodwoods in the guitar and I'm finding the split sound has much less girth and presense. Humbucking sounds rock though! I understand the nature of spliting pickups means that when they're split, they're less hot, but the drop off in volume is drastic in this case. The guitar has a huge bottom and midrange so I'm afraid to put anything that is overly bass heavy. Not sure if WCR Filmore's would sound better split since they are wound slightly hotter than the Goodwoods. Overall, I need something that rocks when in humbucking mode but also retains a usable volume when split. WCR, Rolphs, Harmonic Designs, Rio Grande's, the list goes one. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
