Custom, Domino 'Split Coil' Pickups
Hum-Cancelling, Single Coil Voiced pickups in a standard Gibson/PAF Size
After a conversation about the old Wide Range Humbucker modification I came up with these - Humbucker Sized, Noise-Free, Single Coil Voiced Pickups
The 'Domino' Split-Coil, Single Coil voiced Humbuckers are based on the old Fender® Wide Range Humbucker trick where the 3-a-side hidden threaded magnets were removed from each bobbin from underneath, leaving a hum-cancelling, clear, bright & defined, fatter, fuller single coil sound from the remaining pickup.
While not intended to be a vintage recreation of the original Wide Range Humbucker (I make those here) & this old modification trick, I've tried to create a pickup close to the original modified sound that will fit into a standard humbucker cavity & mounting ring.
Essentially a humbucker sized single coil but with more presence and a fatter, fuller, hum-cancelling sound. Like the standard single coil, each string has its own magnet for improved clarity & string definition.
The 'Domino' Split-Coil - a hum-cancelling, noise-free single coil voice from a standard humbucker sized pickup and you can customise them with your choice of output & magnets to shape the overall sound - For those looking for something a little different, an alternative to the traditional Humbucker sound.
PLEASE NOTE - The 'Domino' Single Coil Voiced Pickups FIT STANDARD HUMBUCKER CAVITIES & MOUNTING RINGS. 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 & string balance as the magnets will follow the radius of your fingerboard.
