Thatīs very interesting I will definetely search on how to wire an area 67 like a single coil, but Iīm also considering a dp 402 as I think itīs the best aproach to the sound Iīm looking for, what would you think is best?
I meant just wire the normal way as instructed. I am looking at the DP416, it comes with the black and white soldered together and only red and green leads are long. You just wire one wire to the 5 way switch and the other to the ground ( body of the pot). You then test for phase matching in #2 and #4 to make sure the sound is right. If it is out of phase, then you reverse the leads and is done.
Don't mean to confuse you, I just meant wire it up as if it's a single coil that have two leads.
My DP416 don't even have a ground leads, I tried to solder one on the metal shield inside and it did not help to reduce the noise. This pup is noisy
, I read complain about this from others too. This is the worst out of three I have. That is the reason I use it as spare parts and open it to look at how it is constructed. I actually like the DP404 in the middle because it is louder to match the HBs. It has since been replaced by DP420 and I have no idea how it sounds. You need one that is not as bright, that's the reason I mentioned DP402 or DP404.
I am going to switch to the Tex Mex bridge pup soon. The reason is because the Tex Mex bridge is loud also and it is a true single coil. I can wire it correctly so it cancel noise in #2 and #4 if I split the coils in the other two HBs. With the VVs, you cannot do that. If I were you, I'll check out the Dimarzio FS1. It is a true single coil with high output and you can make it hum cancelling with the split coil of the two HBs.
