First, very well written article, thanks for forwarding it. And I'm glad you're willling to speculate with me.
As for your most recent post.
Tone of humbuckers:
When you mentioned the design of humbucking pickups vs tone, reminded me of a short interview I read a few years ago with country picker Steve Warner. He said he was Strat-Stack pickups (I think Seymour Duncans), said he preferred using them single coil, unless there was a lot of noise then he used them humbucking with a loss of "bell tone" (upper harmonics?).So the upper coil should sound OK, but I still wonder what the lower coil would sound like.
Two 5-way switches:
The only problem I see with wiring my current pickups to a pair of 5-way switches is I want one switch is set for the in-between notch, and the second only for one of the two pickups. I think the each cicuit will (crosstalk) engage both pickups.
I'll keep it in mind. Would you need to use 18vdc to pass pickup signal? (I think I've read that in an Anderton or Bradshaw article)
Or what about a tapped pick up?
Hand made pickups:
I actually hoped someone that has wound their own pick ups might comment on the feasiblity of winding a Bifilar pickup.
Alternative switching scheme:
Could you wire the pickups with resistors (250K or 500k) between leads, then short them to de-select pickups, without crosstalk?
Talk to you later,
