    Default Bucker splitting.. neck to screw, bridge to slug

    Is there any issue splitting to the screw coil of the neck bucker and slug coil of the bridge bucker in a les paul? Will the middle position be hum cancelling? Any phase issues? I'll be using duncan pickups (custom 5 and alnico ii pro) with a miniswitch to split.

    No issues. I have my Explorer wired that way and it works great with a hum-canceling middle position. I'm planning on re-wiring my LP that way the next time I take the cavity cover off. For the Explorer, I used this diagram, but flipped the bridge and neck pickups. (the top pickup in the diagram splits to the slug coil, bottom pickup to the screw coil)

Which is why many people play electric guitars but very very few of them are actually musicians.

    That how my Carvin DC 400 with their active module splits the Sentient in the neck and 59 Custom Hybrid in the bridge and it sounds great.

    I just installed a set of Fishman Fluence Moderns on an old Ibanez Artist. We installed every option. It allows you to choose which coil you want to hear, and I was quite surprised in what a different it makes.

    Iím not sure Iím sold on the pickups in general. They do something most pickups donít, but they are also missing something too.
