after a ton of research i have decided to get my local guitar shop to do a mod on my LP. it is putting the humbuckers out of phase with each other by doing some rewiring in the control cavity, and adding a push/pull pot so that i can select the normal range of sounds, or the out of phase option.

can anyone tell me if this is a feasible mod and roughly how much would it cost?

thanks

Take it to a guitar tech. If you're inexperienced you shoulden't get experience you don't want by ****ing up your Humbuckers. You take it to a guitar tech. He fixes it. You pay him. Your guitar is fixed. Shoulden't cost you more then uhm. Yeah.

Win-Win situation?

yes, thats what i intend to do. i dont know how to fix anything that needs tools and soldering irons and drills and stuff.

i also read that, when that type of rewiring is done, you should insulate the wire using "heat shrink tubing" otherwise when the wire touches something it will short out. i take it the tech would know this?

I would do it yourself. Technically, it's almost impossible to "**** up your humbuckers". They're very sturdy pickups that can last for decades. Ask any owner of a 50's Gibby.

Doing it yourself isn't hard, I do all my tech work myself. Think about this:
A push pull pot costs 10 bucks. Wire is like 2 bucks. That's all you need, any your tech will almost assuredly charge you more or around than 60-70 bucks.

As for your heat shrink question, it depends. I only use heatshrink when it's a connection that may move around, or that needs to fit tightly around something. Otherwise, it don't matter. You don't need to heatshrink everything.
