I've heard this term used here a few times, and I also noticed that the Fender Mustang Reissue has 3 pickup settings - on, off, and out of phase. What exactly does "out of phase" mean? Can someone clarify it for me?

When 2 pickups or coils are connected in such a way that the current flows are in opposite directions and tend to cancel one another they are said to be out of phase. Position 2 and 4 of a Strat switch is not out of phase, in fact quite the opposite?they are in-phase. Out of phase sounds consist of very little bass, dominate mids and highs with a characteristic 'nasal, honky' sound and have a much lower level.

i think thats from the kinman site.
basically you do this for a different tone. or to add a switch so u can switch for additional tones.
