Coil splitting pots

Post by jnew » Tue Oct 04, 2016 11:09 pm

U's guys's seen the pots that all you have to do is push and it coil splits you HB'r? Push again and your back to HB'r mode? In other words, you don't have to grab and pull it up. You just bop it on the head to change the modes.

What are they called and where can I buy them? 8)

Cool. Thank you. I scored one. A little pricier but they are pretty quick and convenient. :thumbsup:

I use them on my humbucker equipped guitars. Martyn Booth introduced me to them when I bought my Signature off him.

I have them on 2 Les Pauls (R0 with BKP mules, homebuild with BB3 bridge and Jazz neck), my son's SG and 2 Martyn Booths (Sig and Classic).

They are mainly useful on the fly as you can hit it really quickly to chop from clean to less so, having said that the nicest one is the homebuild Les Paul as the BB3 rips into a plexi in humbucker mode but flip to a spilt Jazz in the neck is really sweet way to clean up instantly. I use CTS pots and high quality caps and am sure that helps a lot.

:thumbsup: I have it and am putting the guitar back together. I now need to figure out how to wire the pickup so that front coil, or coil away from the bridge, is the one in play. Seems the rear one is in play and I don't want all that treble bite.
