On the split coil vs. single coil topic:

One of the things he briefly mentions is pickup placement. This is actually a pretty big deal in the tone of any pickup and I think accounts for the dissatisfaction people sometimes have with split coils, where the active coil isn't always in an ideal location along the string.

I've tried some imported pickups from Guitarfetish (I know, that name right? ) They may not have the pedigree of name brand "boutique" pickups (Seymour Duncan, DiMarzio, EMG, et al) but for the price they're worth giving a try. If you like them, fine. If not, you're not exactly out a bunch of money. On the flip side you can always pick up used Duncans or the like off Ebay for nearly the same price.

On a side note, as I was sitting in the chiropractor's office today waiting for my adjustment, I happened to recognize Lionel Ritchie's 80's pop song "Dancing on the Ceiling" playing in the background. Didn't really pay attention to it, until I heard the guitar solo. Great tone and phrasing, had to Google it right there. Turned out to be a session player, Carlos Rios. Such great tone and phrasing!
