    Enough string movement there to get a decent output from the pickup without using more winds on the coil. In practice it works quite well.

    Without really thinking it through I thought 3 x vol and 3 x tone would be a good way to go.

    In hindsight I think I'd prefer 1 x vol and 3 x tone. Considering I've never laid a finger on a soldering iron before, the less connections required, the better. Also, I don't (yet) have a router and have never used one before, so not having to re-shape/expand the control cavity would be sensible.

    My question now though is: how would one go about coil tapping the bridge humbucker if using 1 x vol, 3 x tone, plus a 5 way blade selector switch?

    That was my first thought. However, knowing nothing about wiring up a guitar, I assumed that with all three pick ups sharing that volume pot, making it a push-pull coil tap for one pick up might cause issues for the others. Was I off the mark?

    No issue using it to split the bridge.

    Need to ask yourself how often do you use a tone control compared to volume control.

    On a hot rodded strat copy I had in early 80's I dropped in 3 Bill Lawrence blade PUP's that each had 3 way mini switches and separate volume controls but no tone controls. To be fair it probably had 2 x too many volume controls plus I never was one to tweak away with tone knobs either. If the PUP's are decent quality their unadulterated signal should be good enough.

    The HB/P90/S combo will provide plenty of significant tonal differences and if you are not used to soldering and/or doing complex wiring jobs maybe Master Tone & Master Volume with a push/pull coil split for bridge PUP would be the easiest way to go. Definitely what I would do to begin with.

    Cheers, Waz
