I'm upgrading my Epi Les Paul with new pickups and electronic, and I was wondering if it would be worth my time and money(push-pull pots) to wire it to allow coil splitting?

Well considering push pull pots dont cost that much and it wouldnt take that long to rig up, why not? More versatile guitar.

I think it would be more worth it on hot pickups.

Coil splitting on 2 HBs:

Putting the 2 coils of a HB in parallel is similar in sound to split, but retains hum-cancelling when only one pickup is split.

You can split both pickups at the same time with only 1 push-pull pot, but it's more versatile to do them separately.

If you split one pickup to it's North coil, and the other to it's South coil, they will hum-cancel when used together, in-phase.

Whichever Bridge coil is farthest from the bridge, will sound better when used as a single.

If you split only one pickup, split the Neck. A single at the neck, with a HB at the bridge is a great tone.
