    Question Coil Tapping

    what coils are active when tapped with the red wire at 5909s?
    i've been astonished when i saw a schematic that showed at treb black as hot,
    at bass white was hot.
    imho this would only make sense to avoid hum in splitted middle position.
    i had soldered both blacks as hot and it is ok!!!

    any opinions or ideas?

    edit:
    oh, sorry - i had to add that it was ment with push/pull and toggle.

    No, I believe that is so you don't go out of phase when both pickups are on, concurrently.

    Of course, some people prefer the power-out-of-phase tone. It's the P.O.O.P.!

    I can't get to the link from work, but I'll add more to this when I get home tonight.

    that's interesting.
    as i use the splitted middle pos for cleans, in phase seems to be better.

    OK, here's what I use for those pups, a 3-way toggle, and a push/pull tone pot.
