can they be coil split? i read that they're 4 conductor? does this necessarily mean they can be coil split ?
Yup, any 'bucker with four-conductor wire can be tapped/phased etc- it's all in your guitar's wiring.
I just fitted sh1s to my G400 and they were not 4 conductors. I don't know if they can be modded to be so. I would guess it could be done by a compentent person.
Well according to the SD website a 4 conductor mod is available.
yeh im pretty sure you can buy them with 4 conductor wires. thanks for all your help
