I ordered my parts today and was wondering what matching output humbuckers sound like, y'know, like with one in the neck position and one in the bridge position? Does any body have any experience in my boat?

I have no experience with it, but I know the neck is a louder position. I definitely wouldn't want to match pickups.

Is there some reason why you want to do that? Pickup manufacturers make neck pickups so you don't have to deal with the volume difference.

I was just wondering about doing it that way in my v so that I could put a switch that turns them into series wired

you could do this with any humbuckers i once added a switch to someones guitar o that in the middle position is could switch between parralel and series


if you have the same output humbuckers the neck would be alot louder unless you lower it but theres only so far you can raise or drop a pickup from the strings

Yeah, switching can be done regardless of pickup, assuming they are all 4 coil pickups (IIRC).
Neck pickups are usually built to be 25% 'quieter' than their bridge equivalents, so you want to look for an pickup that would approximate that output. For example the famous combinations of JB/59 CrunchLab/Liquifire etc
