If you had a pristine set, but they were out of phase, would you pop the cover and flip the magnet, or just live with it?
Phase switching is problematic with 2 conductor braided wire. The signal ground and the chassis/cover ground are both carried on the braided shield, so when you flip the switch the chassis, pole pieces, and cover are all connected to hot instead of ground.Add a push/pull to reverse phase. you may never need it, but when you do, it's there!
I need to get a polarity tester.Some extra questions... How in love with each of them in specific are you? Have you tried other misc pickups with them or used a polarity tester to identify which one is the "wrong"one? Do you think you'd be just as happy selling off the culprit and taking your chances buying another?
