    Stingray Special 4H coil split possible?

    Hi

    Can the Stingray Special 4H have a coil split? The HH version uses it - so I guess its possible? There seems to be 3 wires from pickup - are those ground, front coil and rear coil?

    If not possible - will a MM Classic pickup fit the hole?

    The problem you will have splitting the pickup is hum as there is no dummy pup.
    Your best bet would be looking at a series/parallel switch for an extra dimension. Personally I’ve never done it with stock EBMM parts but anything is possible

    Hi
    I received the Special today and it is possible to cool-split it. Noise is no problem if you isolate with copper.
    The bass is great - but the pickup sounds a little dull compared to Classic one. I installed the classic pickup and put space between D/G string on the bridge. Now it sounds exactly like the classic - with much more brilliance.
