Thanks to John Toner from G&L for this diagram. Along with the
diagram, John provided the history to this change:
The revised version is my effort to correct the hum in the #2 position (neck+middle).
I had noticed that you could only cancel hum in the #4 position (middle+bridge).
I had several calls from dealers and owners asking about that.
My solution was to make a new pickup for the Classic “S” where the neck pickup had the same wind/polarity as the bridge.
The new pickup can be distinguished by the yellow and red wires as opposed to the white and black wires of the Standard ASAT neck pickup.
The Revised Classic “S” now cancels hum in positions 2 and 4 and gives you that “in between” or “pseudo out of phase sound” that is characteristic of Legacys, S-500s and Strats.
After showing the results to Steve Grom and Dave McLaren, they gave the thumbs up and now all Classic “S” ASATs are changed over to this revision
