  • 59 neck in reverse polarity?

    My fender FMT HH tele came with a set of seymour duncan pickups, a pearly gates 'plus' and a 59neck in RP(reverse polarity) I didn't know it was possible to have a humbucker in reverse polarity. It is so when both humbuckers are split it will be noise cancelling. I never played attention but I thought humbuckers did this anyways. I may be wrong, that's why I'm asking if it is something special for the pickup to be RP or was it made this way for this fender model which is set up for coil splitting both pickups?
    It's funny how some stories became historic,
    especially when the authors clearly wrote them to be metaphoric,
    But people will believe anything when it's written in stone or ancient scroll...-Fat Mike

    Stud coil of bridge with screw coil of neck, (or vice-versa), will be hum-cancelling. But a lot of people like inside coils split. That's where the RP neck comes into play. I actually think it would be cool if all humbucker sets came that way.

      Indeed, that's a sound I really like.

        For the OP - it doesn't need to be a true reverse wind, of course. Simply flipping one magnet is enough.

        Inside coils makes the best slutbucker. It's what made me love the PRS 5-way instantly, back in the 80s.

        I agree with Artie, it would be nice if that were standard.
