    This has been discussed ad nauseum.

    Cliffs: GFS Mean 90, forget price tags.

    Ha ha... I was just about to start researching the same thing:

    BG Pure 90s - $140 (set)
    GFS Mean 90s - $76 (set) - black nickle finish discontinued
    Lollar SGFH - $270 (set)
    Phat Cats - $140 (set)

    Fralin P-92s. $260 a set and worth very penny.

    Mean 90 - probably GFS's best pickup.

    Okay, I've been thinking about this too for my R7.

    Here's the question, will one of these make my R7 sound similar to an R6?

    If so, maybe I don't have to buy a P-90 guitar after all.
