  • lil 59, Hot rails, worth splitting??

    I have a Strat with a lil 59 neck, duckbucker middle and a hot rails bridge,
    and a tbx tone control. i was thinking of adding 2 push pull pots to split the coils in the 59 and hot rails, is this worth doing or not. Do these 2 pick-ups
    sound good split?

      In my opinion, if you were to take a mini version of a humbucker (ex lil 59) which is thinner sounding already than a full size bucker, then split that, it's asking for thin tone... but that's just me, as I've never tried it.
