Say on a HSS strat, how easy / impossible would it be for someone (who knows what they're doing) to split the humbucker to get a single coil sound out of it?

Is this possible, worth it, to get something vaguely like a single coil sound in the bridge?

Cheers, one what may be a silly queston.

Splitting the coils will never yield a true single coil sound, I hope you do know that, if yu want to know why, you can do a simple search here.

In short, no.
Depends on the wiring of the stock pickup - if it's 4 conductor then you can do it, but it's likely only going to be 2 conductor which means you can only do it if you replace the pickup.
Actually called Mark!
