for an HSH or HS (single coil in the neck), should i do a rwrp or no? for the HS set up, it would have the bridge on a coil tap with the push pull pot, i want it to cancel hum for the the middle position, would i need a RWRP in the neck? for an HSH, it would be the same thing with both pickups. RWRP or no?

theyre dimarzio paf pros and a dimarzio true velvet.

thanks in advance.

The humbucker has one polarity on one coil and the other on the other coil. You just have to select which coil cancels hum in conjunction with your single coil.

Worst case scenario - I've even flipped the magnet in a humbucker to make it play nice and it worked just fine. This is only if you can't get it to cancel hum with wiring alone.

so should i return the RWRP pickup and get a standard one?

Coil TAP and coil SPLIT are two different things

i know. taps are push pull and splits are with the selector switch.

NO

here's the difference
coil tap- has two different outputs, because halfway through the wind they send one output, and then at the end, the second, greater output.

coil split- turning your humbucker into a singlecoil (axing one of the coils)

so no, it's not the difference between pots and switches
