Bullshit, try again...

Anyway, whole point, parallel wiring sounds like fuller and doesn't drop in volume as much compared to single coils, IMO. This is the case with all my guitars.

Same experience here. I highly prefer parallel wiring to coil splitting, because of the benefit of no hum & single coil-ish sound it offers.
