Help with P90 ES 335

Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

I was reading a guitar magazine from about like 2-3 years and it was this ad for a Gibson Custom ES 335 with P90's. It mentioned that it allegedly has coil tapping. That makes no sense to me. I mean I've seen the occasional Les Paul with that but that's for introducing like a strat type to single coil to some sort of humbucker. But a P90's is techincally a single coil, what's does that do? Emulate a humbucker?

Coil tapping is not coil splitting. You coil split a humbucker to isolate one of the coils to emulate a single coil. you can coil tap a P90 to tap only a certain number of winds and get a lower (vintage style) output versus a hotter (modern style) output - as it sounds like you can do with the guitar you mention.
