    is it just my "pre coffee this morning" imagination, or does the top of that p/u look like someone used a hacksaw to cut it in half before winding the p/u? please tell me it ain't so. :help:

    Then again, once it's under the p/u cover who cares what it looks like, right? And it's excellent to see that the old P bass crowd finally has a h/c option available.

    Well, ya kinda have to cut it in half. The split coil P-bass is just that, a split coil wound in opposite directions for hum cancellation. This does the same thing but are placed directly next to each other to fit the physical dimensions of a SCPB.

    If this was something I was manufacturing, I would have utilized two independently made pieces ... or at least used a jig to align a single piece and then sheared it precisely in half perpendicular to the centerline of the pole pieces.

    The p/u in the image just looks like someone said "good enough" to the alignment of the cut line. :meh:

    After it's wrapped you can hardly tell it's been cut.
