Sterling Valentine pickup swap question, possible to just swap?
First post here, new owner of a Sterling Valentine, not the expensive MM Ernie Ball one.
Now, I’ve found that most people have small gripes against that the guitar hasn’t got a single coil in the neck position, but frankly, wouldn’t it be very easy to swap these out with each other? The single coil bridge pickup is in the exact dimensioned shell as the neck humbucker and I wonder if one could just swap places with these to have single coil in neck position? And HB in bridge position.
I wonder if there’s anyone that has done this on their Sterlings Valentine?
Also if it’s possible to just turn on the bridge single coil to get a “reverse slant” as some Telecaster/strats have, to get the “left hand vibe” from it. Or if something seriously happens with phase reversal, or whenever in pararell/serial mode, or any “in between” setting when both pickups are used.
FWIW, I think it’s the main trait of the Sterling Valentine. The high end one, it isn’t needed, since you have split/tap hb in neck anyway.
