Wide Range Humbuckers - Splitting Coils / Series & Parallel Wiring
Creamery Wide Range Tele / Thinline Humbuckers
One of the things I love about the Wide Range Humbucker, and either my Fender® reissue upgrades or my own Classic '71 Wide Range Tele Humbuckers is the sheer versatility of them.
Balancing the warmth of the standard humbucker with the clarity & definition of a single-coil pickup, the Wide Range can cover such a 'wide range' of tones.
One thing that's not often known, but something I've been pushing for a while now - is the option to have my own handwound Classic '71 Wide Range Humbuckers or for me to upgrade your Fender® reissue Wide Range Pickups with 4-way wiring.
Wide Range Humbucker - 4-Way Wiring
This allows you to split the coils for a true single coil tone or alternatively, have them wired up in series or parallel for a variety of unique tones, each with their own set of characteristics.
I adjust the visible & hidden threaded magnets to a more optimum height for a good balance.
Creamery Classic '71 Wide Range Humbuckers - 4-Way Wiring
You can choose the option of buying my own true spec Wide Range Humbuckers with 4-Way wiring which will enable you to coil-split etc. I also make my versions with custom thinner covers and baseplates for better magnet balance.
Have a look at the demo videos below to see the versatility of these pickups - These are Modern Fender® Reissue Wide Range Humbuckers that I've upgraded to vintage specification with my custom made individual threaded magnets and internal ferrous reflector plates.

You can hear how the 4-way wiring allows to flip from the much beefier Series to the regular Parallel wiring options with just simple push/pull pots.
Here's another couple of video demos showing you how the coil-split could work with my Wide true spec Creamery Range Humbuckers. Again, thanks to James Ryan for the videos:
