Is this a trick question? That's all a humbucker is.

I meant to ask do two single coil pickups in RWRP have the typical thicker tone of a humbucker pickup?

Re: two single coil pickups in RWRP

"humbuckers" (double-coil pickups) are typically two single coil pickups that are reverse wound & reverse pole (to thus cancel hum). So they're one in the same typically speaking.

Dude, a humbucker IS two single coils, one of them is RWRP to the other.

Are you trolling us?

Not all humbuckers have a thick sound, vintage wound pickups with a low DCR can be almost painfully bright in the bridge position.
