I did it because the bridge pickup wasn't as loud as the neck pickup and it was too trebly to my taste. They are matching 57's on a Gibson ES 339. I think it did make it a little louder the tone change was very slight. Any thoughts?

Interesting idea, I like it. An alternative to switching neck and bridge pickups when they are different.

i flip my neck pickups on my LP's. I don't know how much it has to do with everything, because i flip the magnet in the same stroke. that is a whole different thing though.

It's probably going to come down to which coil was overwound more than the pole pieces, but it's worth a try.

Loudness seems like more of a height adjustment to me, and you're almost always going to get a louder neck than bridge with PAFs.

Still, worth a try. Glad it worked a little!

I do this routinely - the screw pole sides of the pickups face each other. I do it because I select the screw pole coil in single mode, and I want it further from the bridge in the case of the bridge pickup, and a little way inside the hypothetical 24th fret position for the bridge pickup. I don't think it makes much difference, but in my case it can't do any harm and it might do some good.

Dimebag always flipped his Bill Lawrence L500 Xl so the hot coil was away from the bridge, he said it was too squirrely the other way. When I put a Wilde Pickups L500 XL by Bill Lawrence in a guitar it was pretty trebly then I remembered Dime's trick, I flipped it and it got really fat and came alive.

Couldn't you adjust the pup height and then fine tune by turning the individual poles ?

Absolutely but the L500Xl pups have twin blades in place of poles. That is the only pup I flipped.
