I desperately want a P-90 in the bridge position on my Strat. I want it to be very gritty, but be able to clean up for like, Skynyrd kind of tones... Sort of.

Basically, i need it to be able to grit up to like, Social Distortion, but be able to clean up pretty well.

Budget is $200 USD.

GO!

You'd need to change out your pickguard if you want a P90 and not a humbucker sized P90.

You got an HSS Strat? If not then you have some routing ahead of you.

If it's an HSS strat you could try the Gibson P-94, it's a HB-sized P-90. Dunno about the price, though.

Check out the Duncan P-Rails. It's three pickups in one, totally bitchin. It's gotta be under $200 as well.

I've seen these in a guitar... I didn't like it too much.

As for routing, i've looked under the pickguard and its routed for HSS, so i won't have a problem. And i want a p-90 sized p-90, not a humbucker sized p-90.

Well, in that case you will need to get a new pickguard or mod your current one.

Its gonna be a way easier mod to use a humbucker sized p90. That would be a drop in on a HSS strat. A true p90 would require routing and uses direct mounting to the body vs suspended from the pickguard like singles or hums, a dogear style probably wouldnt fit at all. A true p90 would put the edge of the pickup even closer to the volume knob and really close to the edge of the pickguard. And you would have to cut your pickguard as finding a ready made soapbarSS set up will be really hard.

As for the question of a single coil sized p90, no. A p90 is a single coil but gets its tone from its size. If you shrunk it down to fit in a single coil space then it would be an ordinary single coil.

Exactly. A lot of people think that a P90 and humbucker are close in size. They aren't really. A humbucker is much wider, but not as high. So even if you have HSS routing, you'll need to route the body.

Just get a bright, gritty sounding humbucker. There are a lot of good low output humbuckers that get a very single coil like character. You could always try the Wolfetone Dr. Vintage or Fralin Unbucker.
