It's a coil splitter, I believe. Converts the bridge pickup to single-coil.

I believe it's a coil-tap switch, to split the bridge humbucker into a single coil, if you're into that kind of thing.

Coil split, not tap. You don't tap a humbucker.

coil split?

hang on though, i have a five way pickup selector on an HSS config. if thats the coil splitter, why do i have 5 options that get progressively less metal the further away from the bridge?

coil split sets the humbucker to parallel connection
coil tap shortcircuits a coil thus making the humbucker sound like a single
this varies as she expressions are not standard

That's not a coil split, that is a pickup selector. Not all guitars have coil taps.

The position pointing to the bridge (1) is just the bridge pup, the next position (2) is bridge and middle, 3 is middle, 4 is middle and neck, and 5 is just neck.
