I've been thinking about a P90 equiped guitar for a while now, but finally got to try a couple today. I didn't get on with the feel of either (Gibson Melody Maker 2014 and a Fender Jim Atkins hollowbody). I did like the sound, particularly the MM as the hollowbody was a bit too bassy, but it confirmed that I'd like a P90 guitar. However, this now gives me an idea for my 'spare' Squier Affinity Tele that I now rarely play since I got my 50s Classic last year (and pinched the OV pickups that I'd had in the Affinity for many years). I would like to change this Tele to a P90 one. I've found a P90 pickguard and modestly priced P90 to put in the neck position, so will cost under £40 all in (I can do all the soldering, etc myself including the routing). However, the bridge pickup is the issue. The place I've found does a replacement bridge which has a cut out for a humbucker and I could use their humbucker sized P90. However, they only do the humbucker sized P90 in a 'late 50s' sound (Alnico V rather than the 'early 50s' Alnico III), so I'm just hoping it doesn't end up too smooth sounding. Has anyone else done this? The Affinity really isn't worth much at all (it was only £99 new about 14 years ago) so I'm not concerned about devaluing it and there isn't really a new guitar I can buy that I like the feel of that is within what I'm prepared to spend. I'd prefer to just get two of the P90 'dog ear' models (£22 each), but it's the fitting at the bridge end I'm struggling with, hence the humbucker bridge option. However, this puts the price up (£52 for the P90 and £20 for the bridge) and the bridge is for a through string body (mine is a top loader), so I've either got to drill the body or drill the new bridge to make it a top loader. I may just fit the P90 neck pickup and then see how well it works with the existing single coil bridge pick up, but it would be good to have an idea of how I could deal with the bridge P90 later.
