Having failed to find a tele that floats my boat I decided to assemble bits together and customise my own. I have only just started and have a nitro highway one body on the way from @CasperCaster
and a Creamery 79 Bridge pickup on the way from @paulnb57 ;;;;;;;;;;
I promised missus munckee I wouldn't put new cash into this so I have to sell before I get the rest, but will be looking for vintage style bridge, wiring etc. My main decision at the moment is for the neck pickup, the body is routed to fit a humbucker. I decided to try for a sound I do not already have which has narrowed it down to filtertron or p90. From initial youtube research I'm leaning to p90 but there are a lot less videos of filtertrons.
Anyone tried both and have a preference, I'm a complete idiot at wiring, are there any potential issues wiring wise with either. If I get a bespoke harness put together do I need 250k pot for the bridge and 500k for the neck?
I've been thinking for a while about 50s wiring for the bridge pickup is it just a positive or are there negatives, can you do it for just one pickup?
Any thoughts, assistance appreciated.
