short of the standard universal route, what specific routing can accomodate most pickup types?

can humbucker routing accomodate all other kinds of pickups?

can it accomodate p90s, standard single coils etc?

appreciate the feedback.

No, a humbucker route cannot accommodate a single-coil pickup or a P90, if you're talking about a strat or tele pickguard. I've tried it and had to do extra routing. Warmoth offers a 'universal rout' which is big enough to accommodate any type of pup - this is not the swimming pool route, but a big rout for one pickup.

A humbucker route CAN accomodate a Fender single coil sized PU no problem; P90s are meant to be mounted to wood and while theoretically you could mount them to wood and have a pickguard custom cut for that hole, lining them up could be a pain; you're better off getting a P90 in a humbucker mount, there are a number of different mfgr.'s P90s available in that form factor.
