Are you serious? Even if you're not serious about building a body, maybe you'd like to get together to jam some time. I'm on Auckland, south of Magnolia, and west of Cahuenga. I guess about 3 to 4 miles from you.
I thought about using single coil sized humbuckers and a tap switch. I replaced the neck pickup in my Carvin Bolt with one of those. The only thing is, I play mostly "surf" so I thought that single coils were the best choice.
Ya know, those slide switches are not technically ON/OFF/OUT OF PHASE, they are sort of ON+-/OFF/ON-+ so if you have one set for ON+-, and the other set for ON-+ the pickups are out of phase with each other, but if you have them both ON+- or both ON-+ they are in phase with each other. The manual says you can get 9 different tones depending on how they are set, but it isn't true. There are two settings that put the pickups out of phase, and two that put them in phase, they both sound the same. And, if you are only using one pickup, it sounds the same regardless of which ON position you use.
