I ran a search and didn't find anything, so I apologize if this is a duplicate...

I've got an old "Kit" guitar banging around the house... A "Saga" kit I believe... It plays great, but you can imagine that the electronics are about as cheap as they could find and still call it an "Electric" guitar... Body's made of Ash, with a Strat style maple neck with a rosewood fret board.. Nothing spectacular or to write home about, but I was thinking it could be a neat project to "mess around with"...

so, I've been thinking of doing something kind of unique with it, and was wondering if anyone else had tried putting P-90's in one. If so, was it a disaster? or did it sound pretty cool... Not sure how I want to wire it up yet, but I'm thinking that I would like to try a three pickup configuration.. haven't measured anything yet.. just bouncing around Ideas...

Do it (even though, in reality, you're replacing a single-coil with another single-coil).

P-90s are the best pickups of all time.

Too bad your guitar didn't have a humbucker in the bridge, because they make P-90s that fit into that hole.

Yea.. I realize that.. but P-90's don't sound anything like strat pickups.. well, atleast they don't in anything else I've heard them mounted in..

Oh man, I've wanted to do this for a long time, but never actually owned a strat or had the money to do this. Please do it, and post pics/report back on how well it works. I love the P90 clones in my old Harmony, they're by a long shot the most beautiful sounding pups I've ever played. I'm seriously considering using them in a strat build this summer. I suppose the pickguard would have to be custom though?

There's your pickguard for $25. I bet a strat with 3 P90s would sound awesome! A little routing would probably have to be done on the body, but nothing too fancy and the pickguard will cover it.
