DIY tribucker?

Re: DIY tribucker?

yep pertty much. find where both the coils start and stop. if you add the extra coil to the start of another it would effectively be a parallel circuit, if you add the start of the other coil at the end t will be series which you may want to try first .

you will find that you have probably added quite a bit of noise to the sound. one coil is north and one coil is south and they are run so that the 60 cycle hum is effectively cancelled out.

you may be interested in the dimarzio multi-bucker though. It is a fast track 1 and chopper put together making it 4 coil pickup. I had one and it was quite awesome.
