Amazing Guitar Mod
Can’t believe I haven’t tried this before. I’ve always hated coil split sounds before. Found them completely unusable. Bought a humbucker equipped guitar that had a coil split already wired. Searching the Fralin site I found the 7k partial split. Made a world of difference! So good I added to all my guitars with humbuckers. No more huge volume drop with thin wimpy sounds. It doesn’t sound like my vintage style single coils,(no coil split ever will) but it is a totally musical sound that I love using. Think more fat single coil, almost P90ish sound.

Did The Trick
Used The Partial Tap Resistor to cure my wimpy split humbuckers when my push-pull knob is engaged. Followed instructions on Lindy’s site and now the split pu’s sound much beefier. So easy a fix, so inexpensive that I highly recommend it!

The partial tap resistor works as described. No volume loss when coil tapping the pickups. Just follow the diagram for installing.

Unreal! I just installed these with some Seymour Duncan Custom Shop Antiqity’s in my Goldtop Les Paul. The most usable coil-tapping mod I’ve ever used. Single coil tones are so good!

Great tone from a split coil! The partial tap resistor gives great tone from a split-coil Pure P.A.F.

I found out about this partial tap trick about a year ago and since then I have used it on all of my split HB, sometimes using 2 different value resistors with a 3-way center-off switch to get 2 distinct tones. I has opened up a whole new sonic template to me and I will not just flat-tap a HB to ground any longer. Using different value resistors can allow you not only to match the split coli tone to your guitar but also to your amp setup. Highly recommended!!!
