Custom SC for Les Paul®
Split Coil Wiring Harness

Split your humbuckers into single coils for classic, low output spank, and back again with a tap of the volume control.   
The Obsidian® Custom SC for Les Paul® gives you greater tonal diversity, through the power of inbuilt coil splitting switches. The upgrade comes with sturdy solder-less connectors, so it can be installed by anyone.

What is Coil Splitting?

Humbuckers are built with two coils of tightly wound copper, for low noise, and high output. Coil splitting cuts the link between the two coils, so we can play with one half of the humbucker. This essentially gives us a single coil, for traditional Strat® or Telecaster® sounds.

"Switch Between Les Paul & Strat® or Tele® Like Sounds"

The Obsidian® Custom SC gives you a switch built in to each volume control, for switching between your traditional LP® humbucker output, and lower output Strat® or Tele® tones.

CRYSTAL CLEAR TONE

To make your tone crystal clear at lower volumes we also include an Obsidian® Custom Spec Treble Bleed Mod. This prevents tone 'muddiness' at low volumes by allowing high frequencies to pass along a separate path to your amp, rather than being stopped short by the increasing resistance at the volume control.
