I'm thinking of making my own guitar, and I decided on using a p90 hum bucker setup. If I were to use that setup, which pickup should I put where. It should also be noted the pickups are an SD phat cat and the Fernandez sustainer humbucker style
+1 on P90 neck and HB bridge (even better, get a 4-conductor HB so you have the option of splitting the coils.) I have an original version Reverend Double Agent with this combo and it is the most versatile guitar I have (and I have a few!)
I have experience with the Phat Cat pickups and while most will probably disagree with me, I believe the P90 sized humbuckers shine in the bridge position. They are a bit brighter than the traditional P90 but still sounds amazing. But the truth is you can't go wrong with a Phat Cat in either position, they're great pickups! HNG^%$
