Anyone can tell me if Mini-humbuckers, P90s and TV Jones 'trons share the same body pickup routing or at least with some minimal sanding at the edges ?
Other than extra room, I haven't had any issues mounting mini humbuckers into full sized HB sized routs. The ones that Ive used are neither wider, taller or deeper :icon_scratch:jackthehack said:A mini-humbucker wil NOT fit a standard HB route, it's "mini" to fit in a P90 route, don't know the specs on the TVJones 'trons, the ones I've seen look like they take a full HB route unless they make a special model to fit in a P90/MiniHB route
callaway said:I believe that Gibson actually invented the mini-humbucker because they had made a ton of guitars with P-90 routes, but the P-90 fell out of fashion and they wanted to put a humbucker in there to appeal to a wider audience. So I think the mini-humbucker was actually designed to fit in the P-90 route with no problems.
Wish I could remember where I got that info...

A p90-mini hb-p90 was actually my desired build, but Warmoth nixed the idea. If they do indeed sell a cover, then it's still possible. I looked at the Allparts site but didn't see anything. Is there any way you could link it to me?
