Good news. I just looked at the SG2000 pickups and noticed they do have an unused terminal underneath them. All I have to do is add a new shielded single conductor cable to each pickup and buy a pair of push-push pots. I can easily wire this up like an SG1000 8)
Measure the resistance across each of the different terminal combinations. That will confirm if they are actually potential coil splits.

Yep. I can read each coil separately.
There’s a pic of some SG1000 pickups here and you can see they only added an extra wire.

Good news..I'm pretty certain Mr McGeoch used the coil taps.
