So I've been lurking for a while...thank you guys so much for all the info I've gotten from you.
My current situation is that I got a killer deal on a new JB TB4. I also own a Strat, and the PU is only a 2-wire setup...I'd like to coil split it or do a series/parallel mod (I'm not sure which yet).
Since the TB4 vs. SH4 string spacing works out to 17/1000 difference per string space, I'm not worried about that. I understand that many Strat players have done this with great success. My question is:
If I were to cut the coil wire connecting the two pickups and extend them to become a 4-wire setup, what issues should I be aware of?
How easy is it to do this?
Can I do it with some simple soldering techniques?
