Spanky IBZUSA Single Coils

Ok, those pickups were stacked humbuckers I know. And dimarzio did a good job of getting close to a single coil, but I was disappointed that they didn't spank in the neck and middle and the middle and bridge positions. Well, they were humbuckers.

Recently I got another blue burst and got around to rewiring it. Underneath the stacked humbuckers is a pair of black wires connected with a little bit of cloth tape. Humbucker modders will know this and the connection between the two coils of the humbucker pickup. They also know that if you ground that connection, you'll only get one coil. This is know as splitting the pickup.

So I did that with a push/pull switch and split those stacked HBs. There was more volume and the spanky quack of a strat was there. So try it, tone fans.
