Custom Handwound Replacement 'Domino' Split-Coils
Humbucker Sized Single Coil Pickups
After an email chat about an old Wide Range Humbucker modification I came up with these.
These 'Domino' Split-Coil Single Coil voiced Humbuckers (previously known as Wide-'O's") are based on the old Wide Range Humbucker trick where the 3-a-side hidden threaded magnets were removed from each bobbin leaving a hum cancelling single coil tone from the remaining pickup. While not intended to be a vintage recreation of the Wide Range Humbucker (I make those here) & its modification, I've tried to create a pickup close to the tone that will fit into a standard humbucker rout. Essentially a humbucker sized single coil but with more presence and fatter tone. Like the standard single coil, each string has its own magnet for clarity & string definition.
Essentially a hum-cancelling single coil tone from a standard humbucker sized pickup.
You can customise them with either the warmer, slightly more resonant Alnico 2 magnets or the more attacking, slightly brighter Alnico 5 magnets in either a lower outout 12mm tall rod magnet or the stronger, higher output 16mm rod magnet for more attack.
PLEASE NOTE - THESE SINGLE COIL VOICED PICKUPS FIT STANDARD HUMBUCKER CAVITIES. Also, I can stagger the magnets to follow your neck radius. Just let me know whether you have a 7.25", 9.5", 12" etc etc neck radius and I'll stagger the magnets accordingly. This way you can keep a good action on your setup.
