    Do they exist? Anyone make a noiseless P90s that 1) dont cost big money and 2) dont stuck? What's the best bang for the buck?

    Go on the bay or amazon and look for used P100's, but don't expect them to sound exactly like P90's.

    Kent Armstrong Stealth 90s??? HP90s, pretty reasonable, but do they suck? Anyone have any experience with them?

    I installed them on a customer's guitar and thought they were pretty good. I saw a bunch of complaints online calling them 'very weak'
    Either those people were not adjusting them correctly and/or they wired the coils in parallel by accident. The one's I installed had plenty of output.

    I have a set of these coming for my Flaxwood Liekke.

    I love the tone of my SD Vintage P90s, but on buzzy stages the noise gets excruciating.

    I'll do a report.

    Thx. I read some reviews saying how they're not high output. I'm not looking for "hot," but do want this to be my highest out put guitar. I have a strat and a tele, the tele has Fralin Blues Specials which are 5% hotter than his standard vintage tele pickups. Will the Stealth 90s be hotter? It's hard to tell based on resistance numbers since these are way out of whack that way.

    I found a brand new set of these Stealth 90s for $100 on Ebay, went ahead and ordered them. It may be a couple weeks before I can get them installed but when I do I'll give a full review.
