Discussion time! A few years back I stopped caring if I had a rw/rp middle pickup. I don't go crazy with wiring mods but I do typically add some sort of neck and bridge together option. I see folks hem and haw and stress about hum cancelling when mixing pickups or using funky wiring, I used to be one of them, but then I stopped caring. Things are simpler. When is hum really all that bothersome? When you aren't playing. So why isn't your volume off when you stop playing? That's good practice. Aaaaaand, GO!
