Looks a bit thinner than a regular lipstick. Maybe a strat lipstick? Not sure...
P90 at bridge? Sure, why not. I had a HB sized P90 at bridge in my main Tele for quite a while. It sounded nice but not as good as a full size P90.
Recently I changed it to a Quarter pounder, which sounds amazing. Possibly even better than a P90... Which I know is sacrilege to say, but hey, it's the truth!

Here is the Rig Rundown
Here is the part that he talks about that tele.
I have a Epi P90 in my Alder Strat. I love it , but the voicing seems better suited to Mahogany so I need to eq a little. Are the Fender P90s voiced differently than Gibson ? I bought a set for my next Tele build.
I too wanted a Tele/Junior mashup - mine is a little conservative, it’s just an Esquire with a Cavalier Humungous Lion in a normal bridge. But that pickup does a fantastic job of sounding like a P90 with some hot tele bridge tones too. I’d highly recommend it for anyone who wants a gnarly single pickup guitar with Tele ergonomics.
The best £80 I've spent in a while. Bought the loaded body off a friend, then threw on a neck from my test bed guitar.
One P90 is great- but two? Gotta love that.
Rio Grande makes one that fits a standard Tele bridge. Been wanting to try it.
I'm still bummed I missed TTB and BBS when they came through here. Love them both. I've gone over to a LP type with P90s (the neck p90 is a staple-type, so it sounds more Fendery than a regular p90) and a Tele with an over wound bridge and WRHB-type neck).
There's just enough difference between them to cover a huge range of options but enough similarities that I can do all o need with either one. But if I had to pick only one, it would be the p90 bridge and WRHB type neck.

We aren't all talking about- or looking for the same things, from a P90, of course. You might want that snarly, Leslie West bark, while I'm wanting those early 50s, T-Bone, Lowell Fulson, hollow notes.
Low wind pickups are harder to find and sometimes, still a bit crunchy, for me. Plus, I have to say no, to dog ear types. They are cool looking- but I need the adjustment.
You could look into Seymour Duncan Antiquity P90s. I use them and they sound fantastic.
That is one SWEEEEET looking axe! Dauumm!
Very Very nice! Love P90 Teles!
Built by Nacho, so you know it's excellent.
Rio Grande makes some darn good pickups. I have two pair of their humbuckers, and a Muy Grande set in one of my Teles.
The Quarter Pound is another good rec IMO, sorta like a midpoint between hot Tele and P90 tone.
I really like Blackberry Smoke's music. I stumbled across a broadcast of a live performance of theirs a number of years ago, back when we still had cable. Don't remember the name of the music channel for sure now, but I think it was Palladia (sp?). Anyway, it was around the time of the release of BBS' Whippoorwill album. I really dug it, and so I looked them up. I've added several of their songs to my performance repertoire: Ain't Much Left of Me, One Horse Town, We Can Run Away from it All. And I like their cover of My Old Friend, the Blues better than the original.
And from what I've seen, Charlie Starr's preference is for a single pickup in the bridge, a la his LP Jrs and his Dan Armstrong plexi, or that tele with the bridge P-90 in the bridge. I'm guessing that P-90s are his favorite. For myself, all my teles have two pickups, one with a P-90 in the neck.
yeah they go alright with a P90 in the neck, too...
I love P90 neck tone, have quite a few guitars with neck P90s.
Had this almost-matched pair of Teles; I gave the one on the right to my son for Christmas coupla years ago and kept Raven, the Aerodyne on the left.
