    Hi guyz. I'm just a beginner in electronics. I have 2 humbuckers(deathbuckers) in series(parallel is default). When I reverse the phase in one pickup I have "superb" half of the mids and highs, but the tone lacks in bass response and punch, so I figure that if I leave bass response intact and only reverse the phase in one pickup from about 150-300hz then this will be the tone I am looking for. I have tried messing around in LiveSPICE, but I failed. Also believe that when I'll buffer the pickups first(and then mess around with phase later) they will loose that magic sparkle in that configuration.

    My question is it possible to reverse the polarity in only higher part of the sound spectrum in only one of the pickups when they are in series?

    Why don't you start with an graphic equalizer. Plenty of circuits and KITs around. Build one. Great first project ;)

    This tone can't be achieved via EQ. Reversed phase in series only. :)
