If you want that same switching speed he is getting, you can still pull this off with your three-way pickup switch. Rather than set it at Treble, set it in the middle position (which is supposed to give you a blend of half Neck pickup, half Bridge pickup). Then switch quickly between the Rhythm position ("all the way up") and the middle position. That way you are not having to "jump over" the middle position in the switch to get the sound to cut in and out quickly. Jimi Hendrix and Van Halen are two of the best guitarists in rock history. What they have in common is this: the pursuit of new and unique sounds by trying all sorts of crazy stuff that other people simply wouldn't think to do. Hopefully this pickup selector switch trick I just showed you can spark some ideas for your creativity. Have fun!
Before taking a look into the differences of single coil pickups and double coil pickups we need know there are primarily two different types of pickups. They are magnetic picks which is where single coil and doubles coil picks are categorized. The other common pickup is piezo electric pickups. Piezo comes from the Greek word meaning to squeeze. The piezo pickup reacts to vibrations rather than a flux in the magnetic field. In the past the piezo pickups were made of ceramic material however now they are mostly made of polymers. As these pickups work with vibrations and not a magnetic field they will work with any type of strings such as steel, nylon or gut. The string used does not matter. Mostly the piezo pick is used on acoustic guitars being installed in the bridge.
