would it be better to do this to the bridge or neck pickup?

What do you mean? You can have the Bridge and neck humbuckers wired in series or parallel, not individually as far as i know.

listen little man.. real electrical and guitars are two very different things... i understand how the switching works im just asking which pickup to do it on. And quite frankly i dont see you answering the question, so you know what you can do....

do you mean the humbucker coils being in serious or parallel? i would do it on both, but thats just me. he are some things to consider about coils being in series compared to parrallel. in series you will have 4X the output of them being in parallel. pick ups in parrallel act as a high pass filter and will make the humbucker sound much brighter, while having in serious will have more low end to it. that's all i can give on the subject.

yea, you can't have a pick-up in series with itself.

what kind of guitar do you have?

I can't be bothered explaining it to be honest. I don't like you anyway.

those schematics are so you have an option of doing coil-tapping to get a single coil sound out of the single bucker


it says series/split/paralell

series/parallel switching doesnt appeal to me as much as out of phase, and splitting and different combinations. but you can have the coils in one pickup in series or parallel, and that pickup in series or parallel with another pickup. i would say put the switch on whichever pickup youre likely to use most.

thank you calum. i already did the coil splits and in/out of phase switching... but the series/parallel is the one that i never really understood

i heard series parralell is better than putting 2 coils in a bucker out of phase.
