Most worrisome, I have a very weak volume coming from this pickup. I'm guessing that might be the magnet orientation. They both 'pulled' to the poles... and I've tried reversing the polarity of the leads. Any thoughts, or is it just trial and error with the magnets?
I'm thinking it would have to be like a P90, and you'd want the magnets so that they repel each other where they contact the poles. And 'pull' to the poles refers to touching something to the top
of the poles (i.e. right under where the string would be).
So you'd orient either both N sides of the magnets to be next to the poles or both S sides, depending on what you need for hum cancellation when combined with the other PU's. So the magnets will repel each other, but the poles themselves will be magnetized correctly.
