I've haven't really decided anything yet, but I've taken the Axis from my list, 'cause I really want a floyd rose. So it's between the Ibanez or the MK custom smile.gif

Of course it rocks if pickup is good,
I just wanted to say that splitting humbuckers
can't give you the same result as using single,
it's not wounded as single. smile.gif

Well, I don't really understand that becuase a splitted one simply has two output wires. the single is half the coilings of the hum, which is technically a singlecoil. it's not synthetic.

Try to connect 2 singles and you'll see that is not humbucker.

not the same, because magnetism ain't in the same coil. however the splitted hum is.

and still got different conclusion,
tho I read some articles as well. biggrin.gif

I without doubt trust your ear over mine, however my technical background is telling me that they should be the same tongue.gif

well, on my strat, if you combine pickups, it sure as heck cancels most of the hum. Maybe I have a magical strat.

With your techical background at concideration wink.gif did you concider that a humbucker that you split could and would not have it's position directly under a harmonic position, hence the coils of the active half would be set off.
A singlecoil can be placed right under a harmonic position (the octave of the 12th fret f.ex) and pick up the very best sound while a humbucker would be placed such that it's mid position is right under the harmonic position in order to have it sound best, splitting the coils leaves one on each side of it and the active one will not pick up the best sound available.

That proves, in theory, that a split humbucker will not sound as good as a single coil since it's not placed correctly and therefore not picking up the best of the strings.

And since we both trust Muris' ears I think it's proven in it's practical use aswell smile.gif

With both theory and practice prooved. I second that, back on topic now.

OK

I'm back from my local musicshop...
After spending couple of hours just sitting there
and playing different kinds of guitars, I even tried
Something called Danelectro or sum, MAN are those
weird huh.gif Anyway, after alo-oot of playing, something
was ought to tag along biggrin.gif

So I bought the Ibanez JS1000BTB Satriani,
and I gotta tell u, I'm so HAPPY biggrin.gif
It was like that the guitar and I were one,
if u know what I mean biggrin.gif
It cost originally 1 840 €, but I it got for 15% off,
so it was around 1550 €, thanks to bargain skills wink.gif

Here are some pics of me new baby smile.gif
