    Hi,
    I need advise on wich pickup will sound better.
    Im aiming to a M56 Bartolini, wired Series/Parallel/SingleCoil, and I havent decided on to wich have..
    The QuadCoil has 4 Coils 2-2 while the Triple coil has 2 Real coils and a Dummy coil in the center.
    Both Pickups allow the configuration I want, but seems that the QuadCoil is more difficult to wire.

    Wich will have better output and tone for the specified wiring scheme?
