I have a foundation with the super ferrites that has 60hz hum. I also have a foundation with the VFLS that does not have this hum. Are the super ferrites more susceptible to the 60 hz hum? If not, then i my next question would be: are the neck and bridge super ferrites exactly the same? I have read that they are. I bought the 2 pickups from 2 different sellers on ebay. So could i have got 2 neck or 2 bridge? (assuming there is a difference?). My other question is that regarding the wiring. The diagram shows that one pickup uses red for the hot and the other uses black. When i do this it puts the pickups out of phase and they sound terrible. Wired the same they sound great, but with the 60hz hum. Thanks in advance for any help!

The VFL is an active humbucker, what you have in your other Foundation are passive single coils housed in VFL shells.

Ferrites are single coils so will have 60Hz hum when soloed. Foundations are wired so both pickups act as a humbucker when the Vol pots are set to the same level.
Copy the wiring in your later Foundation and you should be OK
