Hi UG i just had a question so here goes

Pretty soon i'm going to get a Ibanez rgr432exfm (in the red finish if you go on the sight know it will have the purple the difference between the guitars is the pickups)

so my question is should i get a coultap put into my guitar for a more variety of sounds? Does anyone else have a coil tap are they good?


thanks

your neck pup is parallell connected in the 2nd position so if you were to coil tap only tap the bridge pup is imo your best option.

what does parallel connected mean? and shoudl i still do it?

It depends what style of music you play. Say if you were to play metal and heavey rock you wouldn't use the single coil but if you played abit of jazz and indie go for it.

id recommended coil splitting over coil tapping

You don't need to do anything, that guitar already has more tonal options than you'll know what to do with

Seriously, don't bother, just leave it as it is.

try the stick pick ups first before deciding to change them and if you do go for passives.imo they sound much better than actives

and leave it as stock if you want the coil tap try a guitar with a coil tap built in and try a guitar with actives if you want actives ibanez do both on other guitars in they`re product range.

parallel connected put simply means they`re out of phase, sonically they`ll give you a "hendrix-like" tonality

No, it doesn't mean they're out of phase, it just means the signal is split across the two coils rather than runing through them one after another.
