    You can get more than 9k of 42AWG on a pair of standard height humbucker bobbins. A lot depends on the wind pattern in terms of its effect on turns per layer but if the object is just to see how much you can get on there, tone be damned, 10k shouldn't be out of reach, maybe more. (That's not to say a 10k/42 humbucker would necessarily be bad, it all depends on the overall recipe.)

    I have several models over 9k and even one over 10, but I do modify the bobbins for a little extra vertical space.
