This guitar wiring modification shows how to to use a single pole double throw (SPDT) mini switch or half of a double pole double throw (DPDT) mini switch to select standard series Humbucker mode or single coil mode (North coil active). A standard push/pull switch can also be used. In series humbucker mode, the output will be strong with a smooth attack and a deep tone. In single coil mode, the sound will be slightly lower power with a sharper attack and a brighter tone. Note: Series will be hum canceling but in single coil mode, the pickup is no longer hum canceling so a small amount of 60Hz hum may be heard.
