Well, I am gonna try it anyway, but here is what I am planning on doing. I have a gibson T top with the patent number stamped on the base, with the factory cover on it. I pulled the cover and confirmed it was a t bobbin. From what I understand it should have an Alnico 5 magnet and has a resistance of 7.66. I also have an EVH franky type pickup without a cover. It measures 14.29 and supposedly has a degaussed a2 magnet. A bonus is vintage cloth push back wire with a braided shield just like the T top. So, basically, Neck: A5/7.66 resistance and Bridge: Degaussed A2/14.29 Resistance. I am gonna be using The Art of Tones "best wiring kit" for Les Paul and 50's wiring to start off. My biggest concern is the bridge pickup being to hot for the neck. Anybody used a combo similar to this? EDIT: How much would swapping the T tops cover for a raw nickle effect the sound. I dont know what the cover is made of now, only that it is chrome. I simply like the look of the raw nickle better. Havent decided if I am going to leave the EVH uncovered or not. These are gonna be for my Les Paul in my Sig. Thanks for any help.
