really no reason to do that...the tone and all the shadings are there as is...roll down the volumn and I can get them to be single coil-like...i know a guy in town who has splittable Holmes pickups--they are unreal.
i am in love with my Holmes 450/455 set--just put them in my SG. i want another set because they sound so great in my Les Paul, too! these pickups are so responsive to changes in your volume and tone knobs, i'm not interested in splitting mine--they just have so many different and great sounds as they are. totally worth the price IMO.
I see.. maybe I'll just throw em in like that. I don't think it should hurt to get the 4 wire though huh, in case I decide to try it at some point..Just a little extra wire hanging off that is connected together....really no reason to do that...the tone and all the shadings are there as is...roll down the volumn and I can get them to be single coil-like...
That's true to an extent but why not split them if they're wired for it? The sounds I get with mine split, especially in the middle position with one pup full and one split, are not like anything both pickups can do played full.really no reason to do that...the tone and all the shadings are there as is...roll down the volumn and I can get them to be single coil-like...
Interesting ideas sounds like it might be pretty cool. ThanksIf you want a different sound, and want to skip the single coil hum, you could just wire them "wide". One push pull tone control-wire the two wire you normally solder together to the top two on one side, the other pickup/same wires to the top two on the other side. So-all normal with the pot down. Next, wire crossover wires on the bottom lugs(the ones closest to the normal pot lugs) to the top(forms an "X" sort of thing. When you pull up, the first coil from one pup is joined with the second coil of the other pup and vice versa. Like the inner/outer thing in PRS land, except that you can throw the pup selector to center and use the volume knobs for a myriad of cool tones. I used to use the tone pots to knock pups into parallel mode, but I did this mod on my collings and mcnaught and just love the tones.
