Hi,

Hope someone can help.

I am about to wire a HH harness for a DIY guitar.
Its a 2 humbucker, 1 tone, 1 volume and an on/off/on DPDT

I am going to make it so that the DPDT is outer coils / humbucker / inner coils.

I want the single coils to be hum cancelling when to played the same time.

I have a Suhr SSH+ and a Suhr SSV.

How can I do this? I have two different pieces of advice from two different sources so I am a bit confused!

Do I need to flip the magnet of 1 pickup and reverse the coils on on coil of one pickup like this:

or

do I simply need to turn one coil humbucker around so slugs and screws on both pickups are facing the same direction like this:

Thanks!

Try this. If you OK with soldering, it's pretty easy.

The SD site has lots of help under the support header then wiring diagrams.

I just had an email from Suhr.
Apparently their neck and bridge pickups are already hum cancelling so I don't need to do anything!

Glad I didn't take my pickup apart!
