Hello!

I recorded a video comparing the "in phase" and "out of phase" tones on my Gibson Les Paul Special.
I did the magnetic mod, rotating the magnets.

In the video you can hear the tones in and out of phase, and in the end how I did the mod!

Cheers!

I'm a little hazy on the whole "out of phase" thing.
Is that tone achieved when the pup selector switch is in the middle pos.?
Does it affect the tone of the neck pup when it's used alone?

That video makes the out of phase sound FAR more of a significant change than I've ever had in real life. I'm not sure if it's the video or the P90s, but whatever it is - nice job!

Yes, the tone is achieved with switch in middle. When used alone, pickups aren't affected.

Thanks!
In this video, the only post recording edit I did was to adjust volumes, because pickups in phase sound louder.

That's pretty cool. I am working on two guitars right now, both with p90's and I think at least one of them will be betting this treatment.:thumb:
Thanks for posting this.:D

Yes, that could well be the difference then. Very nice! I like the way the P90s sound together in phase as well.

Cripes, you don't even have to take the base-plate off. Just loosen the screws and use a screwdriver to slip the magnets out the side, rotate, and back in.

thanks for this cool video. I think I'll try it out on my 50s Trilbute Les Paul Studio. Does it matter which pickup, neck or bridge, you reverse the magnets on?

Doesn't matter which one. But do it with only one pickup

Nice! This is one of the best comparison videos I have seen.
I love my OOP tone, it really stands out when you engage. Those of you fellas who are
on the fence about it, just try it...its something that you can swap back very easily.
