This guitar wiring modification shows how to use a double pole-double throw (DPDT) On/Off/On mini switch to select between standard series humbucker mode and coil tap single coil mode an also turn the pickup Off in the center position eliminating the need for a pickup selector. 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.
