OK. I did some searching and I couldn't find much on what I want to know, though I'm sure the question has been answered somewhere before. From what I read about coil splitting, it looked like the coil split could be accomplished with a push/pull knob or a toggle switch, but when I searched this forum, it looked like a lot of people talking about 3 humbuckers (super 2s) and selecting the middle position which achieves the Jerry tone. Does anyone know if it's possible to get the split Super 2 sound with two pickups instead of three? I'd much rather not cut up my guitar to add a 3rd pickup, but I really want that sound. Also, would I have to replace the pots to get closer to that tone? I'm thinking I may have to anyway (for a push/pull knob) since I don't want to do any routing unless I must.
Edit: I forgot to mention that the guitar I'm talking about only has 3 knobs, 2 volume and one tone, along with a p/u selector switch, so I can't make one tone knob a master tone knob and use the other for a toggle.
