GFS soapbar pickups?

Anybody have any experience with GFS soapbars? I want to upgrade the stock soapbars in my guitar. I can't quite afford boutique pickups, and the price tag on the GFS pups is pretty attractive. But how do they sound?

i think the Mean 90s get a lot of good reviews, more than the lower-impedance 90s they sell. but i had a pair i a no-name, non-mahogany LP double-cut copy, and they sounded kind of harsh, despite a pro setup. i think they're really meant to shine in mahogany-body guitars or maybe in a semihollow -- not in a brighter-wood guitar. maybe other folks could chime in here.

it's late here and i'm not all there. of course, the Mean 90s are humbucker-sized, so that probably isn't what you're asking about. sorry.

Not to take away from the OP, but if anyone else has used GFS pickups I'd like to hear about them. I too am looking at them right now to turn my HSS Strat into an HH

These pickups are so cheap you can't afford NOT to try them -

The core question here seems to be whether some of the GFS soapbars would be an improvement over stock ibanez p90s in their p90 jet kings like the jtk3. I don't know too much about either set of pups, I have heard some people say they were surprised with how well their jet kings sounded stock, but I don't know if that was a p90 model.
Has anyone heard the GFS p90s or found any good reviews? How about the Ibanez P90s?
