i replaced the stock single coil in my aerodyne tele with a cheap-ass gfs 10k lil puncher dual-blade humbucker. so far i like it - makes this beast roar. further down the road i'll put a real ($$$) joe barden in there, now that he's back in business:

as well, i may replace the p90 style neck pickup with a mini-humbucker.

two questions:

1. obviously, i will have to replace the 250k volume pot with a 500k.

is this (the 250k pot) a long bushing pot similar to a les paul, meaning without a standard tele control plate, the thickness of the wood might dictate a long length pot?

2. will a standard mini-humbucker fit into the p90 cavity easily, or will there be issues?

thanks!

...its more of case of matching this tele to my other, single-coil equipped guitars, so that i don't have to complete re-set my entire rig everytime i switch guitars mid-performance.

replace a P-90???? just kidding

there's a Lollar mini hum on ebay right now actually but if I can GAS at your expense :food-smiley-004: at NAMM TV Jones announced a P-90 sized toaster pickup....that would be cool in that guitar

P'Tron Mount

The P'Tron uses the same size cover as the stock P-90 soapbar, but with a TV Jones pickup under the hood.

Available in Black and Cream


I'm not spamming 'cause I'm not a TV jones dealer...maybe I should

re the pots, RS Guitarworks has 330k's with all shaft sizes and Stellartone has a ganged 250k/500k pot (use one stack for the single and the other for the humbucker)

Hope that helps,

Andy
