Just to be clear, I'm completely happy with my guitar and pups. This is just for curiosity and discussion.

The Seymour Duncan Stag Mag is a humbucker essentially made up of two single coils. If you split it, it's pretty much identical to a Strat single coil, and wiring it in parallel gives results like two Strat single coils in parallel. I've always been an HSS guy, and there seems to be many others in the same category as me. I almost exclusively use only two positions. Bridge humbucker and the neck/mid pups in parallel.

A seemingly good alternative would be an HH guitar with a pickup like the stag mag in the neck. But it doesn't seem like there are really any others like. This would allow players like me to buy one less pickup, and have less pickup switch positions that we won't use. So are there more pickups like this and I'm not aware of it? Or is there a reason there aren't more?

some of the smaller/more boutique guys might do them. i know swineshead used to do one, but they stopped trading.

I haven't tried them myself. I suspect the single coil/split tones are better but the humbucker tones may suffer. I could be wrong on that, obviously.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Rio Grande Tallboy. Good pickup, splits to two strat singles. Sounds like exactly what you want.

Fralin Unbucker. One side is wound hotter than the other, so when you split it and use that one coil, it sounds closer to a single coil, especially in volume.
