  • converting to a p90

    A forumite "soulsurfer" GAVE me out of the kindess of his heart a P90 to try out in my Les Paul Deluxe. It has that PCB board which seems like it would make it easier to swap seeing as all I have to do is splice the new wires to the connecter. But the p90 only has one wire coming from it. I assume it is the hot and the metal shielding is the ground so I think I am going to try to splice it all together somehow.



    How do I get this:









    into this:









    Any suggestions?





    And again thank you soulsurfer you da best

    hey can we see the front of that geetar . IIRC Green is ground and black is hot , perhaps you can push back that ground braid and solder a wire onto that . If you cut the other pickup off that connector , leave enough wire to solder onto .

                Bridge. Have never had a p90 guitar or a mini hum so its going to be interesting. So far the mini hums were a bit bright and sounded better with lower gain stuff I'm still not sold for my style yet.

                    if it were mine I'd yank the PCB and put in a Jonesyblues 50s kit or somesuch . There are many mini's or P90's to choose from so eventually you get'r dialed in . Not that the PCB is a bad thing , IIRC it has Bourns pots , which I like and use but I like oldschool better .
