Hi folks ! I have a question : in a N4 , does the Lawrence goes in reverse position like Dimebag was doing in his axe .. ? Does Nuno flip it too ?

Bill and Becky for sure !! ;.)


Thanks !

Some think it was purely psychological...
maybe he tried 2 different L500s, and one wasn't exactly like the other...
who knows ?

Good to know though, I shall be fitting a B&B to my 'project' in the next couple of months and it will be coil tapped. If the wrong coil stays live then all I need to do is spin it around - no worries.

Yep !! That's an easy way to fix the wrong coil problem.. except for one detail :
In middle position, if you split one noth coil on one pickup and south coil on the other... you get proper hum cancelling...
it you split 2 north coils, and then flip the pup.. you'll still have 2 north coils.. and hum !

Hmmmm (or hummmmmm) - It's going to be H/S/S.

....so, is a single coil north or south?

LOL!

The single coils are going to be Fender vintage noiseless. So, it may not be affected anyway.

Yeah, what Zeg said. I always thought that was funny, but musicians aren't always a logical bunch... Surprised

hehe, well Nuno mentiones his favorite drink is spring water and he only plays the guitar in the weekends. I love these nonsense when interviewers ask the most silliest of questions sometimes. So flipping a pickup, why not lol Wink

Laughing

actually it wasn't in an interview, but in some FAQ or testimony on Bill's website.. Can't find it though Sad

btw.. I suggest you go there to find some interesting points of view about pickups and some myths
