A humbucker is a pickup design consisting of two coils, which are connected electronically out of phase and with opposite magnetic polarities. The effect of this design is to cancel hum and other extraneous noise. The main difference between bridge and neck/middle pickups is output. There is naturally less string vibration closer to the bridge, so bridge pickups are generally wound hotter than neck/middle pickups to compensate for this. Calibrating the pickups this way allows for a more even output balance between the neck and bridge positions.
