stacked tapped parallel??

dave////irongater stacked tapped parallel??
Probably everyone here is familiar with stacked humbuckers; this would be similar but for a single coil sound. Supposedly double wrapped pickups like Seymour hots is pretty unsatisfactory due to the inside wrap being over shielded. How 'bout a stacked single (let's say a tele bridge PU) wound to stock, a thin divider over the poles, and a second wrap directly under (or over)the 1st for a overwound sound. Any thoughts?

Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

I think it needs a better or easier to follow description to elicit comments. At this point, I'm still not able to tell if it is different than the Kinmans or not from your depiction.

If you are talking about wiring it so it is not acting like a stacked humbucker, it will work, done it.  
Take a regular two bobbin PAF type humbucker, make one bobbin like what you are talking about with a split, wire the top to HB specs fill in the bottom so it makes a strat coil when added in series to the top coil, you get either a regular HB combining the top of the split bobbin with the other bobbin in the set for the HB or ground out the regular HB bobbin and add both parts of the split bobbin to make a strat coil. Extrapolate and come up with whatever.

hey Jason, That's pretty close to it. Both windings would go the same way(non humbucking) main coil pretty well stock,& the other only about 2-3 K, just enough to turn it into a hot.
