Assuming two pickups are of equal quality, but one being a humbucker wired to be split and one being a simple single coil, would there be any noticable difference in tone between them? If both pickups were in the same guitar, in the same position and being played through the same amp and whatever else I mean.
Splits will show a reduced treble range and attack.
Exactly the kind of answer I was after. Cheers.
yeah, there'd be a difference, splits won't sound as good as true single coils, basically.
