Re: Max wire on different bobbinS???
Fred: well to report on my winding the P90s: my bridge pickup was wound to 10k but the top flange warped enough to make the pickup sit lower in the cover so rewound it, and got it to 9K before running out of room. So both neck and bridge are 9K now. The neck pickup is really fat and punchy, maybe even a bit too much but on rhythm it holds all the notes and has a fat sound to die for. The bridge pickup sounds like Freddie King. So loving these pickups, though may experiment with the bridge pickup somehow to make it match the neck p/u output. I'm not much of a fan of bridge pickups, but I also rewound a TexMex tele bridge pickup I always hated to 9K and its probably my favorite tele pickup at the moment. Its on a tele with a fairly heavy alder body and maple neck so it works perfectly with that match, and no reflector plate on the p/u.
