I've got what seems like a particularly dark and thick sounding 2011 goldtop p90 LP traditional. It's nearly 11 lbs and has a REALLY fat round tone. Current stock gibson soapbar p90s sound a little dark a bit muddy to my ears. Using Emerson 500k pots w .22 orange drops. I want a bit more clarity and a little less bloat from the guitar. Considering 5% underwound set for this guitar. Not sure though because I like to rock with this thing and play s...

Hey Derrek, the -5% set will still have plenty of output, just a scooped midrange. If you're suffering from a particularly dark tone, I say go for it. The difference between the Stock output and the -5% is pretty subtle, but it does help carve out some of that midrange.

Hey Stu, we don't offer that pickguard style, but if you order an HH Pickguard, you can request this in the notes field. You'll have to send us a pickguard of your choice, but we can do it.

Hey Tim, yes, our P90 will work perfectly for your Gibson Les Paul - take a look at the polarity article here - all we need to know is the magnetic direction of your current Bridge pickup so we can match it.
It doesn't seem possible to see all the options when you only only want a bridge pickup. Since I'm seeking to re-equip a Les Paul Junior I only require a bridge pickup as that's all it has.
