I'd rather ask a dumb question than make a stupid mistake. The split pickups are both exactly the same? Does it matter which half goes with the E-A string and which goes with the D-G string? Does it matter which direction the pickups are orientated? back story: I rewired my P-Bass and when I removed the pickups, I noticed the wire leads were on the E string side, then ran under the pickups to the cavity. I thought that was wrong so I turned the pickups 180 degrees so the wire leads ran directly to the cavity. In doing this I noticed the poles don't line up directly under the strings.
