GFS: Mean 90

Sound — 10
I love the sound of this pup. I love the sound of the p90. Sounds exactly like a nice p90 should. Not a lot of buzzing either. Great for anything really. The most versatile pup I have ever played. I got the bridge version and it sounds very balanced. I love it.

Overall Impression — 10
I love the sound of it. It even looks good. I put it in the bridge of my Blacktop Jazzmaster in the bridge. I would be willing to pay much more than $40 for this pickup.

Reliability & Durability — 10
I have had no problems with this. It seems solid. The build quality seems really good. Very good for the price.

    Just put one of these in the bridge of a Epi Les Paul Special. Very clear and well defined with just the right quack. I was concerned that it might be too bright, not so! It made the highs just right.
    Have any of you guys that bought the Mean 90, ever put it on a meter to measure it's k ohms resistance ? Let me know what the k ohms resistance is, since they don't put that information / specs on their web site.
