I play three Telecasters, they all have standard single-coil pickups. The oldest of these has a really individual sound when using the middle pick up setting. It is really thin and nasal; great for funk and also quite good for imitating an acoustic tone. (This tone is certainly not as noticeable on the other two guitars.) A colleague suggested this may be because the pickups were wired "out-of-phase"; I had one of the pickups replaced years ago, and my colleague suggested that it may then have been wired "backwards" by mistake.
Is this likely?
If I wanted to get this same tone on my other Teles, how easy would it be to put a phase switch on a Telecaster? Would this even be worthwhile on a guitar with only two single coil pickups?
(Sorry to ask three different things in the same post, BTW…)
I have already read through the question and answers here.
