    ...Well I know Fralin and Lollar make versions with 53MM spacing. Also, the Dimarzio Bluesbucker is supposed to be in ballpark. However, does anyone else make them? I see Tom Anderson offers a line of P90s on Fender style guitars, but for the life of me I can't track down the bridge spacing.

    Before anyone says string spacing doesn't matter, please know I generally agree. However, I'm building a custom Jazzcaster/Telemaster and I want it to look perfect :). So, with that said are there any other P90's I should consider?

    Thanks for your time and insight!

    I have a P 90 sized HB made by Bartolini, no poles showing. I think Bluesbuckers are normal HB sized and close to normal construction, just supposed to sound P 90 ish.

    Ask Sunday Handwound to make you a set (custom), which I believe he can. He made me a set of vintage Gibson sounding soapbars that sound really sweet.

    Or just realize the standard/f-spaced thing is mostly aesthetic and will play just fine if it’s a mismatch, and don’t worry about it.

    Kinman has Noiseless pickups with 53mm spacing. [​IMG]

    I absolutely agree that spacing can matter, although it really depends on the height you set the pickup. If you like them lower you really won't notice (except visually) that it's a bit off. If you have them set high enough, the string spacing being off can be an issue.
