I’m more a single coil guy but I find humbuckers with coil splitting and series/parallel switching handy with cantankerous fuzzes. Being able to muck about with the impedance you feed the fuzz without switching guitars is nice. Probably helps that I don’t care fuck all about sounding authentically like Strats or LPs or what have you, though.

I do quite like splitting the humbucker and getting a single coil out of it.

This makes the most sense desu.

I did make an Esquire once that had the "blower switch" where it would be pickup straight to input jack, that was pretty neat.

Should make the most brutal guitar ever that is just pickup to jack, and use the most powerful pickup ever made. I saw some video of a dude that wound a humbucker to like 50k (maybe it was 50k winds) and it made a small amp set really really clean sound like 5 big muffs in a row. I've found a way to make a pickup even more brutal using neodynium magnets in a Halbach array. I wonder if its possible to damage an amp with something like that? :poke:

that magnet this sounds interesting

this has my interest, though it seems like you'd really only be able to install it in a slab guitar of one sort or another (Strat, Tele, JM, SG, Les Paul Junior/Special). i wonder if it's even practical for regular guitar given its size and configuration? would you have to sink it into the body in a huge rout?

maybe if you have a guitar like a rickenbacker where the neck is really high up and the pickups are mounted to the body?
