    Default HSS polarity problem - fender singles SD humbucker

    Hey guys, I have the Fender cs 69 non-rwrps and at the moment a SD Hyperion that I am seriously considering swapping, probably to a Custom Hybrid. That's also a SD so I want to get this issue figured out before installing that.

    The pups were out of phase. I flipped the magnet on the hyperion. I flipped it the short way, like if you have the bar magnet N and S facing your left and right hands, you flip it over away from your body(not to the left or right). Now it sounds better - but still slightly out of phase.

    Does the wiring need to be reversed too?

    If so, does it matter if I flip the sc wires or the humbucker wires?

    Thanks!

    You can flip the humbucker wires to test phase, but I think that if you already flipped the mag, you should be in phase.

    What exactly are you hearing that makes you think you're out of phase?
    Ain't nothin' but a G thang, baby.

    I've had out of phase pickup issues before so I just recognize that weird hollow piercing sound. It was bad before rotating the magnet, now it's like 20% as bad. It just sounds a bit off.

    What is an SD Hyperion? (Honest question)

    I once found a guitar amp in the garbage, a Peavey Studio 110. It caught fire at the first gig I played it at.. But it was at the end of it, thank god.
