So, if you use the stock coil cut wiring with black and white to ground it renders the North coil active and you must physically flip the pickup so that it is "Neck side" when cut. Someone depicted this precisely for a reason on their schematic so that it was easily duplicated.

I dont need a multimeter to know what I'm talking about. It's called MAGNETIC REPEL which will cause major tonal loss. Reverse wiring doesn't fix the out of phase problem. The middle pup is reverse wired to keep north coil(neck active when split) because its flipped to avoid MAGNETIC REPEL. Even stratocasters have a path in the wood coming down the middle of the pup cavity for the wires and isn't a solid wall of wood(blocks magnetic fields)between pups. The solution for stratocaster bodies is the Fender guys (1st designer) built their their middle pup with the magnet already installed on the pup upside down.
Long story short cause theirs no point. Phasing has nothing to do with wires. It's all magnets and their polarity. I have built close to 50 guitars from midi models to usb/midi/1/4 mono and w/1/4 stereo out puts. I have found that the dp100 sounds better in the bridge and 2 dp104 for middle n neck. I also dont use a 5 way. I setup all pups in phase and use 3p3t switches....one for each pup that does series/parallel/split north. Each pup has it's own on/off spst switch in front of their mode switch. This setup gives a guitar the most possible sound modes.
