Just purely out of curiosity are there ANY coil tapped or single pickup 8 strings?
You can coil tap just about any 8 string humbucker, but afaik, you'd have to go custom for single coils on an 8.
I've got my PAF8's 'tapped in my RGA8 just wondering if anyone else has
That's a humbucker
Normally when someone says "one pickup" we do mean one humbucker so it's not necessarily wrong and I don't think any guitar has A singlecoil and nothing else
Well, you can try a single coil 8 string lap steel, otherwise it's just custom.
Doesn't Lundgren make 8 string single coils?
Doesn't the new Munky sig have a single pick up in the neck position?
I have both d-activators tapped on my rga8
I was also looking for 8-string single coil pickups, but there where no stock solutions. For a real 8-string single coil pickup you have to go the custom shop way or d.i.y.
You can also tweak your humbucker PUs to get a close-to-single-coil sound. I did this to my Agile Intrepid a few months ago:
At the moment I have 4 sounds out of my 2 cepheus pickups:
- bridge humbucker (standard bridge pu)
- telecaster twang style (the inner coils of both pu in serial)
- neck single coil (with humbucking effect for AC hum)
- combination of bridge humbucker and neck single coil
This may not be a true single coil but it goes a long way in that direction and it costs only about 10 $ / . And perhaps the same amount of hours to understand the technical background.
As you can see I have no use for the standard neck humbucker but of course it would be still available to set up.
Since a few weeks I'm using a POD HD 500, maybe I should add some new sound samples. Espacially the "single coil" setup enables some piezo-like sounds on the POD...
Yes, but it's a seven string.
I have a similar setup with the PAF8's in my RGA8, really love the inner coil Petrucci type sound
single pickup and coil tapped.
I think carvin would make one but they upcharge for one pickup.If were talking single humbucker.
