I'm changing p90s on my 92' Special. I went with Buds Guitars p90, they are low vintage wind (neck 6.6, bridge 7.6)
Probably I'll stick with original wiring for now...but I am considering other options..I don't have any experience with wiring...so i did my research on forums...and other online resources.
I came across Hamer and SD wiring diagrams, they look pretty much the same, the only difference is, if I'm getting it right, that in Hamer style master tone is wired on center leg, while SD wires first leg.
Can anyone tell me what will be the difference?
As for pots and caps:
Hamer is using 3x hamer 500k pots + .01 uF cap, for both humbucker and p90 2vol 1 tone configuration right?
...guys at RS GuitarWorks have few options/recommendations:
a) 3x 500k + .022 cap (Explorer®/Flying V)
b) 1x 500k (volume) +1x 250k (tone) + .022 cap (Les Paul Jr.) ...I would add 2nd 500k pot for volume of course
c) 2x 500k (volume) + 1x250k (tone) + .015 cap (Hamer kit)
d) ...they also recommend Treble Tamer Kit for p90, it is 2v 2t config...but it could be modified for 2v 1t i guess...that would have 1x 500k (neck) + 1x 300k (bridge) + ether .015 or .022 cap for tone
With pickups, wiring, post and caps it all comes down to your own personal preferences
...but I would like to hear what you guys think about it...what would be your choice for a low wind p90s?
