    Hey guys thinking off whacking in a tonerider vintage 90 pup into a tele with a entwistle bridge pickup with a dc resistance of 7.2k. The tonerider has a higher rating of 7.6k. Will this be too high output to be in the neck position it will it just be a case of adjusting the height to match volumes? Also does anyone know how the vintage 90 sounds compared to a jazzmaster pickup in terms of clarity and glassiness?

    The DC resistance isn't the whole story with matching p90's and other single coils. P90's have a lot of mids. Their frequency response is different. It's not just a matter of an overwound pickup will do the trick.
