    I'm interested in p-90 pickups that will drop into a humbucker rout.

    Could you list all that you know of and say whether they are noise-less or not?

    I know about SD phat cats and Fralin p-92s. Any other options?

    Harmonic Design Z-90 - had a pair in my ES125, sounded great, just drop them in and you're off!

    Are the z90s noiseless like the p92, or are they a true single coil p90?

    Rio Grande Bastard and Fat Bastard. Real single coils so they hum, and the Fat Bastard is wound hot.

    SD Phat Cats. I have one in the neck of a Tele and a set ready to go into my McCarty this weekend, time-permitting.

    GFS Mean 90. P-90 growl, cheap and great! They've also got another one called Dream 90, but that one apparently isn't a true P-90-type PU, more of a strat PU dropped in a hummer casing...

    Then there's Gibson's P-94, which I have no personal experience of, but they've been getting mixed reviews here and elsewhere...
