    new to the site, so not if this is posted in the right area, finally nearing 60 years old got my first les paul, less plus 2015. Loving it. This model has coil tap/split switch, this might seem odd but i want the coil tap to only work on the neck pickup, dont care for the bridge at all on single coil plus if the coil tap only affects the neck i can go from humbucker treble to single coil neck using the pickup selector switch and also mix the humbucker sound with the single coil with the pick up selector in the middle. I loved this combination on my epiphone plus top pro. Is this possible very simply? It seems just removing the wires from the bridge to the switch at the switch and taping them would do this. Thanks.

    If the switch does both pickups, then simply removing the bridge wires will do what you want. Taping as long as the connection is soldered is needed as you guess.
