Re: why my jem noise ?

Single coil, non hum cancelling pickup, just like a Strat. When you combine it with either humbucker, the middle pickup becomes one half of a humbucker, along with the split off coil of the neck or bridge pickup (reverse winding, reverse polarity), so the guitar is hum cancelling in 4 out of 5 positions.

Pretty clever eh?
