DirtyFinger Tarback Splt Coils wiring

Recommended Posts

Can Someone tell me the best was to hook these up please... Thanks WM


I have a set of Tarback pickups with the two separate leads, one lead has 15.75 ohms the other 7.54 ohms. The pickups have a number stamped on the black epoxy that looks like a Tim shaw number. one has 409 681 he other 410 681. I have tim shaw PAFs in a 1985 custom shop les paul and the pickups sound great. they read both around 7.75 ohms. I want to get as close to that PAF sound out of these with the dual leads. I am putting them in a 1976 Gibson LE Explorer and I could use some help on which lead to use, and if possible could someone explain if the higher reading is both coils and the lower just one of the coils or vise versa. or do I use both leads and tie the two inner wires together and the outer ground shielding together. I'm Lost. Here is a Link to the exact pickups on ebay where I got them. Thanks in advance DT
