well coil tapping can mean 2 things:
first some background: a basic singlecoil is a magnet with wire wrapped around it, one wire going in the beginning, and another coming out the end.

a coil tap is originally when one would put ANOTHER wire in between those two primary wires to reduce output and whatnot for a different tone.

A coil SPLIT only applies to humbuckers, and is when you completely bypass one of the coils, thus turning your hummer into a singlecoil. A coil split is a type of coil tap, but a coil tap is not always a coil split

I was very bemused as a youngster watching the Golden Girls when Blanche said she was going to "spank her fanny" I had visions of a geriatric vertical bacon sandwich red and bruised from being disciplined!!!
