My “Vintage Formvar” P-90 soap bars offer a warmer alternative tone to my ’60s units.  I wind my pickups with vintage correct 42 AWG Heavy Formvar wire and use low gauss alnico 5 magnets.  These pickups have a warm fat bottom end and a nice clear but round top end.  They are suitable for Jazz and Blues and music styles that require a warmer tone.   I use a shielded Gibson style braided lead as standard.  I wind my bridge units anticlockwise with north up polarity in line with Gibson and Epiphone pickups.  The neck is wound in reverse for to hum cancel with the bridge.
