Wiring question

I wired a bridge humbucker in parallel and with a coil split. The neck is a P90. When I have the humbucker in the regular parallel setting, its tone is weak and thin. The split position sounds good. Should I reverse the wires on the un-active coil of the humbucker? Gonna try that but any advice welcome.

that would be my guess; it also wouldn't hum-cancel if the one coil was backwards.

(as long as this isn't a stacked dimarzio area pickup, those just don't work in parallel.)

Yes, if 2 coils combined together sound thin and weak (usually nasal sounding as well), then they are connected "out of phase". What brand humbucker are you using? Below is a hookup diagram for a humbucker with series/parallel switching using DiMarzio color codes.

Regards,

Andy
