Selecting A Good Humbucker To Coil Tap


Recommended Posts


i just bought an an ernie ball musicman sub1 with one pickup.

i am planning on changing the pickup, as i want a sort of hot rodded paf sound, and putting in a coil tap.

id like to ask a few questions before i get started...

the guitar is made of poplar, has a finished maple neck and rosewood fingerboard. can anyone suggest a pickup that will give me the hot paf sound but will sound good when coil tapped. i was thinking of the screamin' demon as its quite a balanced pickup but im open to suggestions.

i will be putting the coil tap in the volume pot since i dont want to mess around with capacitors just yet, but maybe someday.

also, since this is my first attempt at anything electrical since i routed through my finger and burned my arm with a soldering iron in school, id appreciate advice on anything else you think may be pertinent to my project. other than not routing through any body parts.
