Hey guys how is this done?

Is it done by connecting the pickup ground to the switch instead and the other cable to the ground?

what does this "flipped polarity mean" and how can i do it to my strat?

thanks

so instead of the wire side facing the bridge where the wires come out you flip it so its facing the neck?

What? No. Don't listen to him.

croc76, many Starts already have a RWRP middle single coil pickup. That's what you're refering to. Check your Strat is positions 2 and 4, if there is a lack of or greatly reduced hum, you already have a RWRP middle pickup. The RWRP middle pickup allows hum cancelling in positions 2 and 4.

With RWRP pickups the direction the coil wire is wound is reversed and the magent polarity is reversed, this has a hum cancelling effect when used with another pickup.

Reversing the wires would give you phase cancellation. You probably already have RWRP. It's basically standard now.
