We know that if you have two pickups selected and one is reverse-wound, reverse-polarity you have essentially created a humbucker and have a low noise output(noise free). Say you really just wanted the neck pickup to be selected but wanted it to be noise free. Here is the question. If you had volume controls on each pickup and have your selector set to both pickups on, could you turn down the bridge pickup volume all the way…..to the point you could not hear it at all……and still have noise cancelling output from the neck pickup with its volume all the way up. It must not work or we would see this setup everywhere. You really would not need two volume controls. Just a 500K or 250K resister wired to the bridge PU from the neck position of the 3 way pickup selector switch.
