Is it possible to coil tap a covered pickup?

in short, yes. Humbuckers that are made to be coil tapped, I think, have four wires or the ability to wire each coil individually, something like that. The cover doesnt matter and Im not sure of the ramifications of doing such a thing, but it should be possible.

You got it right.

It's needs 4 wires, that's the only requirement.

Both posts above me have it right. You need a humbucker with 4-conductor wiring.

Although one thing I'd like to clear up is that it's called coil splitting. Coil tapping is having the ability to turn off a portion of one coil, while coil splitting is turning off an entire coil.

...but yeah, that's just me being picky.

split, not tapped - and it depends if the pickup has 4 conductor wiring or not.
Actually called Mark!
