New pickups - ummm what have I done wrong?

Hey Folks,

Put new pickups in my SG Standard today - BG Pickups Pure 90 in the neck and a BG Bucker in the bridge. Individually they sounds fantastic but in the middle not so much.

Middle position is thin and slightly lower volume, no bass really. Is this what people describe as out of phase?

More importantly how do I fix it *L*?

The Pure 90 is 2 conductor, the BG Bucker vintage braid. Both are plugged into the good ol' fandangled Gibson circuit board.

Flip the polarity of one of them. That is out of phase. Just reverse the hot/ground connection of either pickup and it should resolve it.
