That is true re. phase but not re. hum cancellation. With humbuckers in general it's easy to flip the magnet or you can turn them around 180 degrees (e.g. install a bridge pu with the screws coil towards the neck) to get the right coils to cancel hum with other pu's, but with single coils you do need to get them with opposite magnetic polarity if you want them to cancel hum when working together. You can drop a line to the manufacturers and they will tell you the magnetic polarity of their pickups. Many s/c's are offered with the RW/RP option, but if you're mixing different brands you will find they are not consistent. Even within the same brand (notoriously Fender) you can get different polarities depending on the specific model.Originally posted by thesedaze
I'm trying to determine this stuff before I make the purchases. But it sounds like I can just work with the given wiring to make it function properly, rather than having to choose a pickup that's made a certain way, etc.
