Anyone tried wiring a PAF like pickup (SD '59) parellel in a Les Paul type guitar?
Some say a parellel wired humbucker indeed sounds somewhat more single coil like. Could be nice!!!!
Here's what I found on the net:
Parallel wiring connects the coils of a humbucker like two independently functioning single coils. The result is a brighter, more single-coil like tone but without losing hum-canceling. A humbucker wired in parallel has about 30% less output of the same pickup wired in series.
What if a 59 has only one lead going to the volume pot? How to wire it parallel?
