Push pull pots on the LP Classic

The spec says - 2 Push/Pull Volumes (Coil-Tap), 2 Push/Pull Tones (Pure Bypass/Phase).

The pure bypass (AFAIK) does exactly that; bypasses the circuitry to give you max output at full treble from the pickups.  So that might in fact defeat the other push/pulls.

The phase is obviously to try and recreate the Peter Green sound and should make most difference with the pickup selector switch in the mid-position.  The coil taps make each pickup sound more like a single-coil.

If you knew all this already, apologies!  There must be a youtube vid out there which demonstrates it.....:-k

Best wishes.

(I read "make it sound like a Tele".   I've poked around and just dont see a complete description. 

It will thin the sound out a little bit and  add different colors / variations to your tone options, 

is it usable?

yes!

but ... will it "sound like a telecaster"?   Nah, I've had plenty of guitars with coil taps, trust me... it wont go there.

THIS  one here??  yep.. sounds like a Telecaster

Does anyone ever use the push pull coil split thingies? 

Maybe it's just me who's never heard a split coil sound good? 

Nope, not just you.  Waste of time and effort. Splits and taps sound like broken humbuckers or broken singles.
