whats the differense in a coil tap and a split? Also would it be possible to wire one up with a DPDT switch in a les paul(I have one already in mine wired up as a killswitch but I never use it.)

Coil split grounds one of the coils of a humbucker leaving you with a single coil.
Coil tap uses more/less windings of a pickup to change the output, it's generally done with single coils. In fact I've never seen it done with a humbucker.

Yes you can use a dpdt switch.

Schecter uses coil splits despite what they say. I'm willing to bet you're getting coil split installed too. Let me know if it's still humbucking when you engage it.

http://www.guitarelectronics.com/product/WDUHH3T2206 - Despite it saying dual tap, it's dual split.

http://www.seymourduncan.com/support/wiring-diagrams/schematics.php?schematic=2h_2v_2t_3w_2pp - Same setup just with two push/pulls for each pickup. If you use this diagram you're wire colors will be different if they aren't SD pickups.
