So I've got a guitar with a push/pull split coil toggle on it.... It makes the guitar infinitely more versatile...

My question is, other than having a possibly hollow single coil tone, are there any negatives to having this feature?

Why don't more guitar manufacturers have this as a standard?
My Ibanez has split coil option on it, when I'm playing without distortion it sounds beautiful, but when i split the coil wit distortion on I find theres quite a lot more unwanted noise which is a shame. Thats the only draw back i can think of though.
i'm guessing 'cos it costs them a bit more. if you're making thousands of guitars, a few cents here and there make a big difference to the bottom line.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
