Hi, I have an epiphone les paul tradinional pro guitar that has coil splitting pots stick in them right now. I was really interested in getting the Seymour Duncan APH-2 Alnico II Pro Slash pickups for my rig.

My question is, can these be coil split? I was reading that there single coil or single cable, not quite sure what all that means when it comes to this. Or am i better off with the reagular Alnico II Pro pickups which i know can be split.

Playing thru a mesa boogie f-30 amp.

i dont' kno if u can split them but y bother? i dont ever use my coil split. it just weakens the signal on mine and sounds real thin and weak. if they dont split, i wouldnt worry about spending extra money to get them split.

You coil split if you want brighter, more trebly tones. Due to the noice cancellation magnets in humbuckers, you also lose some top end to your signal - coil splitting alleviates this issue. It's generally done by those who want a "bluesier" tone from their guitar when overdriven, or a straight up cleaner tone for people who like glassy/chimey cleans (e.g. Fender/Vox users)

I really like the coil splitting feature, you can really get a lot of different sounds with it, thats why i want to make sure they can be split before i buy them. The slash pickups are one conection http://www.seymourduncan.com/comparetones/view/204 and the regular alnico pros are 4 conection http://www.seymourduncan.com/comparetones/view/10 , which would coil tap.

This is why im not to sure the slash pickups can be split.

If they're not 4 (or 3, but they're almost non-existent) conductor, you can't split them, so the Slash AP2's aren't splittable.

This. If it's vintage braid, it can't be split.
Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

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

I think that you can ask your local Seymour Duncan dealer to order you a set with 4 conductor wires. I would say ask around at shops, or contact SD yourself.
