Steve prefers it that way, so when it's split with the middle single coil, he gets the coil closest to the neck.

I think dimebag darrell used to do this as well. I do it with my neck pickups as well. Probably just mojo but I like the overall sound of my guitars so much nowadays I can get a tone out of all of them. Its apples and oranges really

Actually it makes sense. Something about the frequencies found at different points of the neck. A different sound on the neck pickups on a 22 fret neck because the pickup would be place approx. Under the 24th fret. The same way the bridge pu on Teles are closer to the neck than Strat models.

duh. why else would pickups sound different in different neck positions. why would picking the strings closer to the bridge give a different sound (less thick)

steve wants the absolute neck coil to combine with the low volume mid coil.
basically he hears the neck single coil combined with a little bit of mid pu

guys, this is the std jem wiring. the logo is upside down, simply because the PUs in jems have either no label or the plastic cover installed to compensate for the "reverse" installation. there is no need to rewire anything ...glen

Ok, one question about this....

I hear the pickups in jems are automatically installed in reversed. Did they do this in the Jem-with-PAF Pro era?
