Oh God, why would you do that to yourself?
Congratulations on successful completion, though
I had it bad too, especially when mixing Seymour Duncan and Bare Knuckle pickups. A NIGHTMARE.
Over time, I came to realise that I had no real use for the coil tap (although, technically, it's called something else. The term escapes me...
). I found the "tapped" sounds to be generally insipid, and not a patch on true single coils. Phase inversion, I've never experienced.
EDIT : And I singed my "fuck you" finger on my left hand. Basslines were oh so painful to play...
