LOL, I know, not really possible without tapping.

But what I'm thinking of is using various EQs and other modification equipment to tame the beast as it were.

Is it possible to even come close?

if so, what would I have to do?

Considering:

Stock ESP-LTD H100FM w/ stock black n tan buckers.

and all the equipment one would need.

A 10 band MXR eq or a rack EQ?

A dimarzio humbucker from hell?

EDIT: EQ it so it's brighter, cuz humbuckers are generally warmer i guess?
I have no clue.

It doesn't really work. A big part of the difference is the phase cancellation you get from the two coils, and you can't dial that in or out with any sort of EQ device. It's inherent in the type of pickup.

Still, if you just want a thinner, clearer sound, any good EQ will do.

For the record, it's splitting, not tapping. Just a pet peeve

And wiring in in parallel sounds closer to a single coil than splitting it. It's not really possible for a full-sized humbucker wired in series to sound like a single coil.

The Electro Harmonix knockout was built for this purpose and does a pretty good job to what I've heard. Not too expensive either, John.

Maybe the price tag is clouding your judgment ?
yeah probably. Or the circuits.

Coil split isn't going to work either on modern humbuckers unless they're asymmetric wind because one half will be weaker than a proper single coil.
Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.

LOL, woops on my part on the tapping/splitting mess.

And as I said, I know it's not really possible to make a passive hum-bucker to sound JUST like a single coil. I already knew about the major differences in buckers and SCs. Thus why I have said what I said. And these things can't be very hot. Their the stock black and tan buckers that come with the guitar, fairly tame and dampened even for stocks.


I'm just wanting to see if it's possible to EQ it to that thinner, more brilliant sound via EQ (any, I've got access to a lot now, thanks to VST). And if so, what would those settings be? I'm not the most acquainted with EQ'ing, as that's an art unto itself, and I've been just wanting to play heh.

these things get burried so quick here:

Just a quick addendum:
I do know that each guitar and amp is going to be different, even with VSTs... but I'm just wanting to go rough estimate here... I know it has to be tweaked to my liking by myself .
