    Do guitars that have a humbucker and a single coil in them hum a lot when both are on ?
    I'm interested in a Bluesboy type Tele and am concerned about hum.
    I'd like to do a Tele with a P90 & a Humbucker.

    it will hum just about as much as the single by itself.

    I've heard the hum would be less than that of just the single coil because it is with the hummer in the circuit.
    Not true ?
    I guess it must not be too crazy bad.
    Tons of people seem to love G&L Bluesboys & those mexican Tele's with 1 hummer & one SC.
