I picked up a Gold Top Epiphone Casino on a whim last week... Feels great for an inexpensive hollowbody, and it has a great, deep acoustic / unplugged tone. The Epi P90s in this thing are horrendously dark and undefined, though, and clock in around 12K. I'm thinking of making this my first experiment in pickup winding In order to get some P90s in this thing that balance the guitar's plentiful low end, I'm thinking of rewinding the P-90s way way way on the low side with 42AWG, and replacing the stock mags with Alnico 3 (or possibly A2 in the bridge). I've also experimented with a pickup swap in the bridge (Fralin 8.4K) and while this helped to improve the definition, I still find that there is too much low midrange and bass for this guitar. I have also experimented with magnet swaps in the Fralin, getting rid of the original metal covers, removing the keeper bar, and pulling one magnet to decrease some of the lows. It's been a fun and informative experiment, but everything is telling me to rewind the originals to get to where I want to be. So my question is: How low is too low with a P90? Lots of my favorite Tele pickups are in the high 5K / low 6K range... but the 90 is a different beast. I'd like to eliminate a LOT of the bottom end & quite a bit of the mids as an experiment to see if I can bring some chime & shimmer out of this beast. So pickup gurus... How many winds would you suggest for a start ? (I can always dial it in from there...) Any other tips for brightening up a custom wind on this bobbin? I'm not married to the idea of keeping anything stock.
