I want to install a pair of Seymour Duncan mini humbuckers which have 3-48 nuts soldered to the lugs I think due to them originally not being factory threaded?

Does the 2015 Les Paul Double Cutaways have mounting plates in the pickup cavities that accept both P90's and mini-humbuckers? What would I need to do with the pickups if they have nuts soldered to what appears to be non threaded lugs to mount them in my 2015 Les Paul Double Cut?

I also want to install a push/push pot for coil tapping options. Should I go with a 250K or 500K pot? Would there by anything else I need to consider as in values of tone capacitors and how are they mounted in a
2015 Les Paul Double Cut?

Not sure if I understand what you're asking, but the Gibson minis have a screw (longer) with soldered nuts.

You must be aware that there's gonna be a world of difference in tone and output
between the Neck and Bridge pickups.
Just sayin'.

The JB is an Alnico 5, not a Ceramic.
But anyway, unless you install them you won't know how that guitar sounds with those pickups, right?
:D
