You need rewiring. The reason he can do that is because that is already wired into the guitar. You need special potentiometers with DPDT switches.

push pulls for coil split or tap your call.

All you have to buy is two push pulls, tbh it wouldn't be hard to wire, just study the diagram.

is dpdt the same thing as push-pull?
so i need to buy my pickups, two push-pull pots, and would they wire it for me in the local guitar shop if i buy pups there? and i can just use the knobs that are arleady in my guitar right?

DPDT is a type of switch (double pole double throw). I think the switches on push pulls are dpdts, I don't know though.

The push pull is a pot that has a switch on the bottom that is controlled by pushing/pulling the pot. The switch is usually dpdt.

yes, the "push/pull" pots have the dpdt switch in them. you need to get 500K push/pull pots. but if you're having a shop install the new pickups, they should be able to do this modification for you as well.

its really not that difficult to do. and it will open up so many more tonal options

It is not that hard. If you can work a soldering iron, its just a matter of switching the pots and re-wiring. A 13 year old can do it. I could change a pickup at 13, and rewiring to a push pull pot is not really anymore difficult, you just follow a diagram.

That being said, I don't personally feel coil splitting sounds that good. I'd look at an out of phase switch instead. But if you want a single coil tone, go ahead.

even if it doesn't sound good, i can just switch to the humbucker lol
