P94 orientation


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Excuse me if this is a dumb question, but:


I recently installed a P94R & P94T in my guitar. I understood that I should be using the black lead from one pickup and the white from the other as hot for hum cancelling. However, I find that unless I use the same color lead from both pickups as hot, I get a thin sound.


I noticed that on the schematic I'm using, it shows the pickups with the leads coming out of opposite ends: the neck pup has the lead going to the top of the guitar and the bridge has the lead going to the bottom (i.e. towards the jack socket).


I installed both of mine with the lead going to the bottom end. Is this correct, or should the leads be coming out of opposite sides?


Thanks for all comments!

It doesn't matter how you physically mount them, it will have no effect if you turn them 180 degrees.


If you are getting a "thin" sound when using both pups together, it means they are out of phase with each other. Reversing the leads on one pup should correct this.
