I've heard a lot of opinions and read a lot of heated discussions on other forums on this topic, but I'm wondering what the "right way" to orient a humbucker pickup is....and why. Every standard sized humbucker PRS I have ever owned or seen has the adjustable polepieces on the bridge side for the bridge PU and fingerboard side for the neck PU. Interestingly...I notice that this configuration is reversed for the neck pickup specifically on every single 408 equipped guitar I have (PS Sig, PS P24 Sig, 2013 PRSX 408 HB, Paul's Guitar and Brent "Monster"...I love 408's). Knowing PRS and PRSh there is a reason why they sound/work better this way (and the standard buckers don't). My own observation is that the slug side of the pickup is maybe just a tiny bit hotter than the screw side...so the pickup seems to take on an even stronger bass or treble character if the the slug side is closer to the FB or bridge respectively. I've been swapping pickups around a lot this weekend trying to see if I can record some comparisons of the 57/08's vs the new 58/15's in the same guitar...and around 1AM (half asleep) I installed a bridge pickup "the other way"...and "it just didn't sound right" to me...too much treble and weaker (my guess from picking up string vibration from closer to the bridge). I know we have a lot of electronics experts on here...and hoping to hear from PTC (especially about why the 408's are different)...I look forward to learning something. Thanks.
