    there are two types of pickups

    1) single coil

    2) humbuker (double coil)

    single coil as we good how ever a litle noise is produced.

    so in order to remove that noise . In a humbuker pickup we have two single coil pickups inverted repectively to each other and it reduced a lot of noise.

    Humbuckers were created to cancel out hum from electrical circuits. In addition humbuckers have a "thicker" sound. That's the essence of it.
    All you need is the passion. Everything else comes after it.
