Hi,

I guess the subject line says it all ... Which Strat pickups are the
most P-90 like?

I know I could buy a new pickguard and put real P-90's into that but
I'd rather start out by experimenting with pickups I can just drop in.

Thank you in advance.

I would have to agree with the Fralin SP43. These make an excellent bridge pickup for a Strat.

I've used both the Harmonic Design Super 90s and the Fralin Steel Pole 43s. Both are excellent choices, IMO...

I agree. I have them in the mid and neck positions of a Strat with one of his humbuckers at the bridge. Great pickups.

Thanks for the information guys.

I love the P-90 tone but also love the feel of the Strat shape so
anything I can do to meld the two together ...

John.
