Dear all, seriously reccomend trying splited Neck Injector paralell to another north up coil- sound incredibile. Previously I've been using Transition, Area 67 and injector - the 4th position was unsplitted. Upgraded middle pickup to custom wound north up single coil (injector is south up), now 4th sounds much more true. Futhermore in 3rd position I've got now north coil of bridge hb paralell to the top coil of injector - sounds like tele on steroids. Greetings from Poland!

I noticed I have not yet commented on the Injector bridge here. I have it in the bridge position of two different strats (one alder/rosewood, one ash/maple), and it sounds great in both. Easily my favorite strat bridge pickup - no more thin tones in the bridge, and the bridge+middle still sounds great (the alder guitar has an Area 61 and the ash guitar an Area 58 in the middle).

Highly recommended.

Cheers Stephan

Haven't tried that but the split Injector neck works well in a HSH set up with the split humbuckers (in my guitar a Norton in the bridge and a Bluesbucker in the neck).

How would you describe the parallel split tones? That’s setup’s similar to what I’m shooting for and, as I solicited in another thread, I’m going for SRV/Knopfler style sounds in Bluesbucker split/middle and middle/bridge split.

They are both very strat like. I compared it with a guitar set up for SSS, and to my surprise the #2 and #4 positions are right up with the SSS guitar. Keep in mind that Bluesbucker + Injector neck on my guitar is only #4. No idea how this would work with a Bluesbucker in the bridge but I guess it should be fine.

EDIT: Bluesbucker in the bridge has one problem with the e-type megaswitch as the splitcoil operations in #2 and#3 are predefined and different (#2 uses the neckside coil and #3 the bridgeside coil, which does not work well with a pickup that uses one coil as dummy). In the neck position it is not an issue as both #3 and #4 use the neckside coil of the neck pickup, which is the signal coil in case of a Bluesbucker. You would therefore have to use a 24 pole switch (aka Super Switch) to make this work with the Bluesbucker in the bridge, and the polarity of the pickups must be checked to make sure the combinations are humcancelling.
