i have a Telecaster 72 Custom with a humbucker in the neck with a single coil in the bridge.. i think the bucker sounds a little muddy so i wanted to change it out with a p-90..but the bucker seems pretty big..how do i compensate for the space if i go with a bucker-sized p-90? do i need to drill holes? mounting rings? i'm sorry if it sounds stupid but don't really know much about replacing pups. Thanks



*not mine just a pic i got a sunburst finish one. just pointing out the bucker seems big, or is it just me?

SD phatcat maybe, may well be completely wrong but i saw it somewhere and i think its the right size

although im well aware it may be something completley different

It's a normal-sized bucker. A P-94, Phat Cat, etc. should fit fine. The only problem you'll have is with the mounting holes possibly being different. Most humbuckers have one mounting hole on each side, not 2.

A P=94 or Phat Cat-type thing would work. But u might wanna take the pickguard off and drill some mounting holes for it.

No, unless you can find one that's a direct 4-mounting hole replacement. You could probably also fabricate small plates that attach to the pickups to create the appropriate mounting holes, but that sounds like more of a hassle than it's worth.

I think it would fit, but if it doesnt you should go to a professional and ask em about it. See if they can doing anything to make sure it fits (thats if it doesnt fit, which it acutally should). I think the image of the P-90 just makes it look big, though in real life it would fit...


Good Luck!
