Basically it's two single coil pickups that are wired with reverse polarity so that they cancel out any 'hum'.

Quote by Wikipedia
A conventional humbucker (or Humbucking pickup) is a type of electric guitar pickup that uses two coils, both generating string signal. Humbuckers have high output since both coils are in series and because the magnetic circuit is low loss. Since the two coils are of reversed polarity and reverse-wound and connected in series, noise and interference is essentially 'canceled out' through a differential amplifier. They get their name because they cancel out a large proportion of the hum (they "buck the hum").

There you go.
