Okay, so having decided to keep and upgrade my lovely Patrick Eggle New York, I have the following items available:
GFS (humbucker sized) P90: this is currently in the bridge position of the Eggle so I'm assuming it's a bridge model - sounds great regardless. Shown here fitted, not to be confused with the Chrome covered mini humbucker in the neck position!
Sperzel Tuners: these are superb USA made tuners, I have them in all my guitars. The only reason they're being offered is because I'm upgrading to the locking version. They are currently configured as 3-aside, but they're easily converted to 6-inline so just state how you want them and I'll supply them that way. Please note that they'll come with the Strat type hex buttons rather than the trapeze ones shown (I'll be swapping these onto the replacement set).
Price: not decided yet, so make an offer and I'll have a think....

The GFS P90 (Mean 90) is only available to order direct form the US, here's what Guitar Fetish (GFS) say about it:
Our Dream 90's have proven to be some of the most popular pickups in the world since their introduction in 2004.
It's hard to find a guitar forum or chat room that doesn't have raves about them!
One of the things people have asked for is a "Vintage Correct" TRUE P90 in a humbucker form factor. After nearly 1 year of handmade prototypes, design changes and careful recalibration- we've come up with a pickup that we proudly call the Mean 90.
How do they differ from the Dreams?? We've gone to a different Magnet structure, different coil size, added an expensive German Silver baseplate, and completely revamped to output level. We slightly "age" Alnico V magnets, and wrap the coils with Plain Enamel 42 gauge wire. The result is a pickup that is FAR more agressive in the lower mids, yet still has a crisp and clear high end. Think of the Mean 90's as a 4-10 Tweed Bassman and the Dream 90's as a Tweed Deluxe. The Dreams are more modern sounding and overdrive an amp with a decided CRUNCH- The Means are smoother- warmer, fuller and a tad louder. If you like Vintage Tones and really want to FEEL your pick attack on the strings- I think the mean 90 may be the best pickup currently available.
