how to wire a rerverse wound pickup

Post by mike martin » Fri Nov 04, 2005 5:03 pm

hi guys
i rewired my tok strat but i am not sure about the way the middle pickup should be connected to the 5way switch. i have connected every thing just like normal, is this correct or should i have reversed the wires so that the hot lead goes to ground, any help would be appreciated
mike :( :( :(

Wiring it the normal way should work, because a reverse wound pickup means just that: it's reverse wound to give a humbucking effect when combining it with either the neck or bridge single coil. If you messed something up, you will not hear the usual in-between sound of a Strat, but a very thin out-of-phase sound instead.
