I know a guy that has 2 newish Firebirds that are identical and he would like to replace the stock pick ups on one of them with P90's. The original Pup's are the solid cover mini buckers.

Looks to me like it doesn't matter if you wanted dogears or soapbars, either way there's going to be a router involved in the process because P90's are a tad larger.

PS It seems like a quite a few people think that drop in Lollar's are a huge improvement.

Lollar P90's are good, I've got them in a few guitars, but if you want a great P90, the 5% overwound Lindy Fralin is exceptional.

I've got one in a goldtop and a Melody Maker, and its just amazing.

Thanks Stratmanx, My friend played an older 'Bird equipped with 3 P90's for a month and that's what got him thinking about a P90 mod to one of his.
