Can someone tell me please?

If on a humbucker Red is Hot and Black is Ground if you connect Black as Hot and Red as Ground does this make a difference to the tone from the humbucker?

Many thanks 👍

If you do that, Iím pretty sure it flips the phase of the pickup. Iíve installed phase switches before, and when you are using one pickup alone, they donít change the tone in my experience (though I donít know if that is electronically accurate), BUT if you only do this for one pickup on a two pickup guitar, it will massively change the tone of the setting with both pickups on (unless you wire both pickups like this then they will be in phase again).
