I had this idea today, now, I'm no pickup engineer or anything, I'm honestly not extremely sure of how they work besides the basics, but I had an idea today..
Now, brands like Seymour Duncan, Dimarzio, etc make "Mini-humbuckers" designed to replace the single coils of a guitar like the stratocaster or telecaster, I had a weird idea today, what if they took two mini-humbuckers, and would them together? I would be very interested to see the results. Now, as I've said I'm not very sure of the science of pickups, so this idea could result in either greatness, or catastrophic failure. I think it would also be very convenient if these pickups came with a coil tap, just so you can get a standard Humbucker sound whenever you need it.
Thoughts on this? Would you be interested in the results, or am I just going to be burned at the stake for not knowing a bunch of obvious facts stating why this is a bad idea.
