Where can I purchase P90 pickup rings, like those you see on humbuckers but that fits around a soapbar p90 ?

Never seen one, they would look lame anyway. P-90's were made for P-90 sized slots.

I've seen them on a guitar once, loved how it looked, I don't really believe in "things were made to be a certain way". I'm more of a "rules are made to be broken" guy.

Anybody else ?

I'm not sure I've ever seen P90 pickup rings either. You sure your not confusing them with mini buckers?

Maybe you mean one of these? this is for dogears though...
from Lollar blog - http://blog.lollarguitars.com/technical/choosing-the-correct-size-of-lollar-p-90-dogear-pickup/

...there is also a shim that is “oversized” for use when you are installing a dogear style pickup into a guitar that has been routed for a humbucker sized pickup. It spans the extra width of the humbucker route, and adds an extra distance of 3/32” all the way around. It’s cut out of 1/32” thick material.

You mean something like this?

AFAIK, you can find what they call "goof hiders" meant for the old Deluxes with minihums. The minis and P90s are the same size, so they'd work on a P90 guitar.

I too am looking for some 'p90 pickup rings'... so far I've only seen them on an early 70's Gibson SG Pro Deluxe

Google image search- http://www.google.ca/images?q=sg+pr...&source=og&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wi&biw=1251&bih=889



PS- I would like a set for my SG200, similar vintage as the SG Pro, they must have used the same routing tools... the SG200 had single coil pickups with huge pickup cavities, no 'normal' pickup ring will cover them. I currently have humbuckers in this guitar and goof rings to hide this. Here's a pic of this guitar in 'mid' project state, and without the goof rings, http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=6638406&id=711762428&l=b17e2e7890
