So i am really contemplating setting up a push-pull pot for my 496R bridge pickup on my les paul to split it. Has anybody here split their humbucker? And if you have, is it worth it? I want to split my bridge pickup to get a more bluesy tone when i need it.

I've never had cause to do it myself, but I was reading about the new Gibson Axcess a while back. Apparently one of the few complaints was regarding its push/pull coil splitter on the tone knob. It was suggested that a push/push switch would be much easier to handle. I can vouch for that myself as I had a push/push switch on my Strat HH a year or two back. Might be worth considering?

My 89 Warlock has a split Seymour Duncun full metal shred with a switch. I recomend it. I get the best Jimmy Page sound from it!

Alright, that settles it. i was really on the fence about this but now I'm pushed over. Ill start saving for the replacement pickup and pot. I probably would go with the switch, but i really don't want to drill a new hole in my guitar, so ill go with the push-pull pot.

Thanks, you guys rock!
