single-coil humbuckers?

  1. In the New Gear section of the March bassplayer, the Bella bella thingy 'features a single-coil humbucker and piezo pickups'.

    Does anyone know what a single-coil humbucker is? (besides an oxymoron)

    What they probably mean is a humbucking pickup in a (single-coil) jazz pickup housing.
  3. Hmm. Now that i look at it, it looks like a box guitar humbucker with a single set of pole pieces in the middle of it.
