    ....you just put a on\off switch on the hot wire of the coil you want to cancel, or what? I guess that would work for paralell wired pickups, or am i wrong?

    that setup would work only for paralleled coils. If you wanted to split a series 'bucker, you would need to provide a path for the signal to bypass the other coil.

    Yes, thanks!

    I knew that about Series wired humbuckers though, but back to the paralell wiring:

    Would it be best if i had a switch that let me send the signal to "ground" (also, a "two way switch") instead of just killing it with a simple "on-off" switch?

    Thanks again!
