I'm putting together an old Ibanez RG340 with an HSS rout. I have an SD Distortion in the bridge, Quarter Pounder in the middle, and cool rails in the neck, effectively making it HSH.

The quarter pounder is Reverse-Wound for Reverse Polarity, which I hoped made positions 2 and 4 hum-canceling with auto-splitting (a-la newer RG HSH wiring).

I probably should have asked about this before buying the pickup, but should it be RWRP for hum-canceling in positions 2 and 4? I just figured that it made sense, but I'm not sure about the polarity of the coils in the bridge and neck humbuckers so I don't know if it will work in practice like I have it figured out on paper.

Hopefully someone will know. Thanks in advance.

I hate bumping, but this would really be a great thing to know about for future projects. Does anyone know a lot about pickup polarity?

don't worry about bumping. you waited at least a day, and weren't bitchy about the way you bumped. No Problem Whatsoever.

you can do hum canceling in a HSH with EITHER a RWRP or a standard single in the middle.

a standard single has South magnetic polarity. in positions 2 and 4 you split the HB and use the North coil of the HB with the middle.

a RWRP single has North magnetic polarity. in positions 2 and 4 you split the HB and use the South coil of the HB with the middle.

Ah, that makes a great deal of sense. I just need to make sure that is splits the right coil of the humbucker. Of course, since I have a RWRP middle, it'll split the outside coils of the neck and bridge humbuckers. I don't imagine it will actually make much of a tonal difference, but it'll be "unique." Thanks a ton, man.
