Switching to the outer single coils gives a "Tele" like sound for guitars and a "J" like sound
for basses (if BOTH pickups have magnet North (or both magnet South) toward the neck)

Switching to the outer single coils gives a "Tele" like sound for guitars and a "J" like sound
for basses (if BOTH pickups have magnet North (or both magnet South) toward the neck)
Switching to the inner single coils gives a fuller tone with more mids.

HB = humbucking (dual coils with both coils on) SC = single coil
