What a killer option. I like that it's a toggle and not a push/pull on a pot, if only for reliability reasons. The only times ever I've seen that coil split switch on the lower bout of a Gibson semi-hollowbody was on the ES-347 in the '80s. That's a helluva find to get one on a 335 from the mid-70s with the small block inlays. (And in my favorite color, no less!)Yes, factory installed too. It's my understanding that they did the coil tap for maybe 5 years or so. When I went looking for a 335 I wasn't out to find one with a trapeze or a coil tap, but I found this one and fell in love with it.
I've found the split position is really usable. I love it with both pickups on.
gorgeous stuff stylemaster!
