    IIRC, that really was the prevailing consensus at the time. With the exception of CRTs, vacuum tube production had ceased in the U.S.
    IIRC, that is.

    That's good. Because my next suggestion was going to be to "tune" the guitar's body with a router. ;)

    Alternate interpretation... "I want this pickup to sound more like a single coil and less like a humbucker."(?)

    OK, 5% worst case. But even with a 240K volume pot, the error is only 3%. As you say, close enough.

    Beating a dead horse:
    The error will be higher for an overwound pickup and low value volume pot...

    Short answer: A little over 7k. (Assuming the pot is turned to 10.)

    Long answer: Rpup = Rjack / (1 - Rjack/Rvol)

    I guess your scenario is that you have a Gibson guitar and aren't sure if the...

    Just to elaborate, the resistance measured at the jack is:
    Rjack = (Rpup x Rvol) / (Rpup + Rvol)

    Solving for Rpup (assuming I remember high school algebra):
    Rpup = Rjack / (1 - Rjack/Rvol)

    Correction: Standard wiring for P pickups coils is in series; the suggestion was to try them in parallel. This makes quite a difference because the inductance of the pair is reduced by about 1/4 and...

    I don't know if it was used in guitars, but insulating "spaghetti" was available in the '60s. My dad had a ton of it in his workshop.

    I've never built one, but if you can't tell much difference between them the most sensible choice is to build the simplest circuit. Right?
