I have a hss guitar project and want a p90 for the bridge but am not sure what to do with the neck position. Would a single. Oil be a noticeable volume drop, If so, would a stacked single work better. I'd add another p90 but I'm not routing this guitar so I want to work with what it's already got.

I'll be buying from iron gear pickups uk. I have good experience with their pickups and they are cheap as anything =] I've been in touch with them but woul like more input

P90 in the bridge, higher output singles in the middle/neck should work pretty well.
Fender American Special HSS Stratocaster
Ibanez 1987 Roadstar II Deluxe
Yamaha THR10X
Marshall JCM900 SL-X
Ibanez WD-7 Weeping Demon Wah
TC Electronic Polytune
Seymour Duncan Tweakfuzz

You wouldn't need the single in the neck to be as high output, since the bridge position is usually a little weaker output wise anyways. Remember, a p90 is in essence a big high output single coil pickup.

Thanks man!

I was concerned because I have a guitar with a humucker bridge and single neck. It sounds strange switching between them because there is a noticeable volume drop and also a noticeable output drop. I use it to switch between the two on purpose now, but I'd like a fairly balanced guitar out of this one.

Yeah, p90s aren't as high output as buckers, just make sure the single coil you get isn't a low output model, then you might notice.

don't think a stacked would make much difference unless it's higher output

you might have a similar problem with the p90 as you do with a humbucker. depends on the output of the p90s and neck single, of course. if you get a hotter neck single and lower output p90 it's probably going to help. don't go crazy and get the absolute hottest neck single you can with the lowest output p90, though.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
