so i got a Dimarzio Air Norton for the neck position in my Ibanez 6-string i´m pimping up right now. and as with a lot of pickups one coil has normal pins while the other coil has screws. on the wiring diagram it says to install pickups with the cable exit towards the bridge. but when i do that with the Air Norton in the neck position, the coil with the screws faces inside and not outside. and with neck pickups those usually face outside. anybody got any idea what´s going on here and which direction i should face it now? it´s f-spaced btw, if that matters.

I believe the screws on the neck pup should be toward the neck.

yapp, that´s how i did it now. and it sounds just fine. the Air Norton plus the Steve´s Special in the bridge is an amazing combo. both together on cleans is and absolute delight.
