    .

    Check out AntiquaTele's threads, he recommends them.

    I get the $15/pair non-branded ones off CL and they are awesome. Avoid the ones with red and blue hookup wires and silicone caulk holding the back in place, look for the ones with the black/gray coax shielded hookup wires, screwed on back plates, and often heat shrink tubing near the free end of the wires.

    Well got a set and they're in. My first time with p90s so I've no experience prior. I love them. New p90 fan here.

    image.jpeg image.jpeg Sure but no laughing at the mistakes I made :D

    I did some horrendous things to this thing so I'm not showing the back, but let's just say the Forstner bit had other plans. Made me realize my first build was a case of beginners luck. This is my second. Still plays well and the boat neck is crazy fat.

    Oh man... I’ve got an idea about what I’m going to do with my oak/black walnut T type guitar. That looks awesome. I was going to outfit it with gold hardware and a set of TV Jones Filtrons but I just put P90’s in another guitar and am sold in those rich big tones.

    True to form, their order comes through in just under a month. They’ve consistently shipped the same timeframe for me. I’ve ordered pickups from them several times and every set so far has been a winner.
