    I bought a La Cab body routed for filtertrons and was wondering what other pickups will fit in the holes?

    I was going to say... new Filtertrons?

    But seriously, I think they're probably close in size to Gibson mini-humbuckers. I have one in the neck position of my Paisley reissue and it sounds fantastic! It might be something that you'd have to measure.

    Filtertrons are not the same size as any other pickup. You'll need to do some routing if you want to put in Mini-humbuckers, which are pretty much the same size as P90s. That said, TV Jones makes several pickups in the Filtertron size/mounting factor. All of his pickups are spectacularly good. http://tvjones.com/pickups/find/find-your-fit/

    Thanks, was hoping to get some P90s in there.
