So recently I've been contemplating putting a mini humbucker in my Les Paul which is currently loaded with P-90s. I'd like something fairly thick sounding and in the vein of a P.A.F. I know that may not be entirely possible given the restrictions of minihums but it'd be cool if you guys could give some suggestions. My budget is under 200$.

May I ask why mini humbuckers?

I mean, correct me if I'm wrong, Les Paul have standard humbucker housing, so why not using standard ones?

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

His has P-90s, so only the minis will fit.

You could also look at P90-sized humbuckers (I personally find they look less janky than a mini humbucker). The TV Jones Power-tron plus is apparently really PAF-esque, and you can get it in a soapbar casing: http://tvjones.com/pickups/filtertron-style/power-tron-plus/. Zhangbucker makes a mini-PAF: http://www.zhangbucker.com/mini-humbuckers.html. I don't have experience with either, but they both seem decent to me.

p90s could well sound closer to a paf than minihums (which tend to sound pretty bright).
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Minihums are great if you want a clear, low-powered humbucker tone with a little snap/twang that one usually associates with a Strat. If you want a PAF tone, I second the TV Jones suggestion.
