The mid pup is reverse wound, and it says that the bridge is available with a reverse wound by request, for no additional charge. Would getting the bridge pup reverse wound, cut down on any hum or buzz typically heard in Strat pups??
No is the answer. I suspect it is available for a wiring that allows for the neck and bridge to be used at the same time. The reverse wound is used when 2 single coils are used, like the between positions (2 & 4) on a 5 way, to hum cancel eachother. But when used in single coil reverse or non reversed coils will still exhibit single coil noise.
