G/R coil is CW
Anderson winds one coil opposite the other; therefore they tie a finish with a start. Both coils are slugs—no adjustable polepieces. Inspect bottom of pickup and trace colored wires to their coils.

Series-linkNorthCCWThe "south" polarity coil is the top coil or above the "Fender" in the cover. Polepieces (adjustable & non-adjustable) are all made from the magnetic alloy CuNiFe (Copper-Nickel-Ferrite). At the time of this pickups production, CuNiFe was the only magnetic alloy that could be threaded. Fender used the finishes for the series-link.

NorthCCWCoils are wired in parallel, in-phase. This allows the pickup to be hum-canceling, but retain single-coil type tones. The lower coil is inverted (rotated 180 degrees) to achieve the reverse wind direction and electron flow.
