    I love the sound of P-90's but all my favorite guitars are routed for humbuckers. Are there any pickups that sound similar to P-90s?

    ya, there are a bunch of companies that make humbucker sized P-90's, if you're looking for a cheaper one, GFS , guitarfetish.com, makes a few that everyone rave about. Go to the humbucker size pickup section under GFS pickups on the site

    Not a dead-on p90, but similar. These really made my prs ce22 come alive. Growly and organic in the best sense.

    +1 for Fralin P-92's. They get you real close and in some ways they are superior.

    P-Rails are pretty cool. I just installed a set in Steve39Stripes LP Custom so maybe he will chime in.
