    This question has probably been asked a bunch of times, but
    I'm too lazy to search around for past threads (sorry!).

    Anyone know of nice P90's that will drop into a standard hum
    slot? A P90 equipped guitar is one thing I don't have. I have
    a couple nice axes with hums in them though and I could
    stand to convert one over to P90s if I can find something that
    will drop right in (and will still sound pretty authentic).

    Thanks.

    An excellent drop-in, P-90 in humbucker clothes is a Seymour Duncan Phat Cat. They used to be a custom shop only order @ $160 ea, now a stock item at ~ $60.ea. They're great. You see em stock in Hamer Newports, etc.....

    My 335 clone is currently in the shop getting Phat Cats put in. (among other fixes) I'll let you know how they are. Unless I forget which is very possible now that they put me back on the Hydrocodone. :confused:

    I wonder what they are like. Also on HC many people seem to favor Kents WP90s.

    Z90s, baby. Nuff said. They drop right in there and sound killer.
