    It has been a long time since I have been on this site. I do realize that this is the place for help with Tele's

    I am needing a wiring diagram show a P-90 neck pickup with 2 wire and screen.
    The bridge is going to be a 4 wire humbucker.
    I am wanting to be able to coil tap the humbucker and be able to have a series in and out of phase.
    The guitar has 2 volume and 2 tone controls.
    I have two push pull tone pots to be used in this endeavor.
    Any help will be appreciated

    Series in and out of phase. Is that the two coils of the HB ?

    No I was wanting to have the 2 pickups out of phase. I was planing on doing coil tap on the humbucker.
    Thanks

    The p-90 has 2 wire plus a screen and I was told that it was possible.
    Thanks

    W a P90 and a Humbucker in series, which p-up is grounded will make a big difference. From my experience w the HB grounded it will sound sort of like a bigger fuller HB w strong bass. W the P90 grounded it will give mids emphasis. The brand matters as does your amp, but that's the general case. BUT that can be really dark and thick. You might want to use just one coil for series.

    Google the Dan Armstrong Lipstick p- up circuit, that gives single and series. If you don't want parallel that circuit will work . If it uses 250k , 500k would be used instead. The HBs leads would go to the phase switch and the switches leads would go to the circuit instead of one p-up.Tap would be on the other pot.

    Do you want parallel ?

    Thanks for responding! I am using BareKnuckles Mississippi Queen in neck and their 4 wire Abraxas in bridge. Putting in a Tele Deluxe 2 vol 2 tone.
    Wanting to use the tone switches are push pull. I would like to be able to coil tap bridge using the tone for bridge and the neck tone to put the two pickups in and out of phase. Series and parallel.
    500k push pulls pots for tone and CTS 550k bridge pot and a CTS volume pot that is only 425k measurement hoping to not be to bright in neck. Have all my caps and Bleed kits . Really would love to do in 50’s style but thinking that maybe too much to ask at this time so open minded on modern vs 50’s wiring.
    Thanks for any help you can give me!

    Is this for home or stage ? For stage you would want fast easy switching, but that means more switches.
