CEB Posted September 4, 2016 Share Posted September 4, 2016 I'm playing a guitar gig. Rock gig. I have a cheap Chinese Fender Tele thing I like a lot. It has a Strat hard tail through body bridge. A bridge humbucker, middle Strat pickup and Tele neck pickup. I originally bought it as a slide guitar. I like the neck and weight a lot. It is wired with a coil tap switch. If I use this as my #1 I would like to upgrade the bridge humbucker. Stock was fine for slide stuff. 1) Do coil taps ever work well? 2) How hot does the humbucker need to be for the pickup to sound good in single coil mode? A Humbucker I like is the DiMarzio Tone Zone but it isn't a particularly hot pickup. Any pickup work well tapped? Stuff I am doing is sort of in a Matchbox 20, Jimmy Eat World, Banditos, Squeeze sort of mode.
