I shimmed mine.
Fender Tele Nashville which I had a set of low wind P90's built by Sanford Magnetics installed along with a low wind bridge pup built for me by The Creamery. Re the Stetsbar, I bought the guitar with a bridge replacement cable operated string bender system and had that removed and replaced with the Stetsbar, may replace that with a standard Tele bridge.
I also have a set of Rose T90’s I need to put in a Tele.
I’m not sure how they sound in a Tele yet! LOL
Love P 90's,they can be a little noisy. Great in the bridge of a jr. For a pure rock tone.
I have several with P90's, one with a P94 set. I have planned more P94's and S90's sets for Strats. (It's part of my planned mods that will eventually get done). But I really love the P90 sound. It is fatter than regular Strat type single coils, and different than HB sound. They have a growl and attitude all their own.
Just pick this one up from Ken. It's already got a pair of Rose pickups in it so you know it sounds fantastic. That, and it'll keep me from buying it.

(or more - at latest count I currently have 7 guitars with p90s in)
Yes, I've already been salivating over it. But shipping from Norcal to NYC would be the cost of the guitar.
Hunt down a Epiphone 56 Standard Pro like mine gold or black.
I did 50’s style wiring (Bourns pots) upgraded to Gibson Kluson tuners and a roller bridge, graphite nut.
it’s my no 1 by a mile. The neck is sublime and the Epiphone Pro P90’s are incredible
This is top line Epiphone much different guitar than the 56 Goldtop.
you’ll be a P90’s guy fast!
Leave the Strat as is. But, I have four LP's and an SG, all with P90s, and they deliver all the tone you could ask for.
I’ve had them in two guitars. I think they sound pretty ok, but I prefer them in the bridge. The neck p90 I found to be pretty dark, and it kinda got lost in the mix playing with a band. I do still kinda wanna get my hands on one of those Grote Jazzboxes, however.
Awesome, congrats. I would have loved to own it but Christmas for grandkids come first...
I really like P90s, though I've never understood the fuss about noise, considering there are plenty of single coil Teles and Strats around and we seem to manage OK with them.
I got a P90 Gold Top 60's Tribute Les Paul as a belated 50th birthday present to myself and love it. Often get compliments about my sound when I've used it for gigs or open mics (it sounds amazing through my Champ clone when it's cranked a little bit). I love the neck pickup tone too; especially when using a slightly overdriven amp/pedal sound.
Couldn't help myself earlier this year when I went to a shop 'just to try' a new Gibson LP Junior. I wanted to see what the 'rounded 50s' neck felt like and ended up buying it. It sounds different to the bridge pickup on my Gold Top too, so I can feel justified having both:
That's a beauty. Looks like a perfect combo.
I usually enjoy them once in a while, for variety, but end up going back to buckers and single coils
Thanks! Was just playing it - growls like a tiger but cleans up beautifully
I was considering getting a p90 guitar for some time, I like the "honky" tones, for lack of a better word. I finally picked up a Jr. and built it around a Duncan P rail I scored for cheap.
Be careful, humbucker sized P90s may not have true P90 tone.
