    Fender Noiseless strat pickups ,Any one know the magnet polarity

    I was going make a humbucker to go in a buddy's strat that has Fender Noiseless pickups making his S/S/S into a H/S/S strat & i was wondering what the magnet polarity is ? so i don't have any phase issues .
    From what i seen most modern strat pickups are South up wound clockwise opposite of what most tele pickups are . any one know ?
    I wound the humbucker the same a Duncan with the south to screw coil . i don't have the guitar here to test & i got a feeling i should flip the magnet in the humbucker .....Any help would be appreciated .

    I'm thinking that the noiseless pickups are stacked coils, no idea on the mag polarity. Can't think through right now why it would matter but it probably does.

    I have several of the hot noiseless ones laying around in my parts box. I checked two of them and they are both south up and negative phase test, which would indicate clockwise windings.

    hope this helps,

    How many guitars do you need? Just one more.
