All Prices Include Fitting

Humbuckers with 4 conductor wiring can be wired in different combinations to vary the tonal range. Series is the standard wiring for a humbucker as the two sides of the coil work together as one, giving maximum output. Parallel wiring is where the two coils work alongside each other giving a more airy sound to your tone compared to the standard humbucker sound, with a slightly lower output. Split is using one coil in single coil mode giving a sparkling tone to your sound. All of these combinations are wired into a single On/On/On 3 position switch and can be placed according to your personal playing preference.
