I just don't like any pickup with the SD pole screws in the neck humbucker .it sounds too bright & not enough body . just remember the paf pro has double allen head pole screws that are different the the hex set screws in the SD .
Having a screw with a keeper bar sounds way more musical &...
Neck or Bridge is irrelevant . the will be wound & assembled exactly the same ,as the neck pickup being flipped (screw poles towards the neck) matters not . follow the Gibson color code https://www.seymourduncan.com/blog/latest-updates/humbucker-wire-color-translation .

a SD is no more overwound than some of the hot paf style pickups being in the high 8-9k range .
It uses a smaller wire so it's almost 14k & stays bright . plus the double allen head set screws add punch to the mixture .
No but there model names has kind of copied more than one of our pickups , keep in mind we have been making pickups for `over 20 years & most of our pickups predates the Friedman Amp name let alone the pickup brand .
The Modern Gibson P-90's may need to be tweaked in design (I find the neck a little muddy & the Bridge a little too relaxed) as is rewiring the guitar with 50's wiring will brighten up the guitar a little . .The stock bobbins are soft so they wind them soft to prevent any flare . 50's...
I have rewound the stock pickups that was in my R6 with our own Blues Dog Specs . as well as a dozen other modern p-90's which the bobbins were quite soft . compared to our winds those were very laid back relaxed sounding .
I have repaired a dozen of these from the 70-80's in the last year or 2 .I will say they are usually in the 17k range . Always with the same T-top winding pattern . 7000 turns tri magnet no keeper thing going on .
the SD Has about the same number of turns of wire as some of the hot PAF style humbuckers .about 6000 turns or slightly less . but wound with 44 gauge wire makes it a great medium output with good clarity for rock tones ,
