Mike Reilander is the man. I love his pickups. I am a big fan of his single coil telecaster pups-they are my favorite telecaster pickups. I just got a few P90's from him. He is a a great pickup winder. He is super helpful and affordable. I am a novice when it comes to wiring and soldering and Mike always sets me up with a wiring harness including pots and caps. He makes things drop in, dead simple for me. I love that. Plus it also upgrades the pots and caps at the same time. Bonus! Ok so I have two P90 guitars. Both gibson juniors. The first one I originally swapped out for a Lollar P90. The second I kept the original. I am a big fan of Gibson P90's. I feel like Gibson does P90's well and rarely do I want to swap them. The first junior with the Lollar was a sweet sounding rock guitar but it was too noisy so I replaced it with the Lollar. The Lollar I am a big fan of because it is nice and quiet and less noisy but it does seem very tame in comparison to the Gibson P90. I was never happy with the Lollar as I feel like it made the guitar just too mild mannered. The second junior was sporting and original P90. I did not want to compromise the bark for another Lollar. But again this gibson P90 was a little bit noisy and hummy. I love the tone but I am annoyed especially with delay pedals and all the noise. Enter the Reilander P90's. The Reilander P90's imo are top dog P90's. They retain the Gibson Attitude but remove all the noise and hum. They are much quieter. They bark and they bite and they have a nice tight low end. These pups are nice and crisp and clear and really react well to volume knobs and attack. Really beautiful sounding pickups. I really like the classic more for rhythm and chord work. The Reilander classic use Alnico 2 magnets. These pickups are voiced very similar to the Gibson P90 but are just more robust and less noisy. Really well done pickups. This is where it gets interesting. I use the one junior for a dedicated slide guitar. I generally do not want really aggressive pickups. Or really high gain pickups. I am more of a traditional kind of guy. But I am having a ton of fun with the Reilander P90 Grit. It has the same vibe as the classic but more throaty, grinding fun. It has been really magical with my slide playing as it just has so much sustain and meat. I really am surprised at my love for this pickup at the moment as again I am generally more of a purist but this is one fun pickup. It is not a super modern sounding pickup, it just sounds like a vintage gibson P90 that is hot. Again really nice sounding pickup that is not noisy. Really fun too. The grit has the alnico 5 magnet. Mike Reilander does both Soapbar and Dogear. I am using the dog ears. The quality is top notch. Mike is great to deal with and like I said he makes the job easy by also selling/including the wiring harness if you want it. I just found mike on day in the builders emporium. http://www.thegearpage.net/board/showthread.php?t=1012380&highlight=reilander The best part of it. These pickups are $55 each and $99 for a calibrated set. Not only are they my favorite P90's but they are so inexpensive that it makes upgrading all of my guitars a bargain. I hope to try out his humbuckers next as I have just had a great experience with his pickups. I have a telecaster project that I am working on where I might throw in a bucker at it. Anyway pickup swaps is great fun especially when it is affordable and you get great results.
