ok so I'm looking for a certain type of guitar. I would really like one with a Humbucker in the bridge and a single coil in the neck but I can't seem to find any guitar that has that set up. Does anyone know where I could find one of this type?

HSS Strat. A lot of different companies make them. My brother has a Peavey Generation, which is an HSS tele/strat mix of some sort. But Fender is probably your best option for an HSS strat.

Unless of course you want a 2-pickup guitar instead of three?

I cant think of any HS guitars off the top of my head, but I know that a ton of Ibanez RGs and Fenders Strats have HSS configurations. Its the same thing just with another single coil inbetween the bridge humbucker and the neck pickup.

Coil split was actually the right term. Coil split is when you make a bucker sound like a single coil, whereas a tap is a reduction of output and gives a more even frequency response curve.

Coil Tap is using the coil of a pick up, splinting lowers the output.


No, Kura is correct. Coil split is when you use only one coil in a humbucker, hence, "split".
