    If I bought a 2017 p90 equipped tribute could I just buy mini humbuckers and just bolt them in? Or is wood work involved and if so what?

    it should have the metal plate in the bottom of the pickup cavity that should allow you to install the mini hums w/o any routing

    I just put them on my Firebird, you will need rinds for the mini humbuckers. You will need to drill four holes to mount the rings that hold the mini humbuckers on the guitar.

    Mounting them in a les Paul will be different than in a firebird. Far less modification required :thumb:

    Are those other style of mounting brackets commercially available?
    Other than through someone selling them on Reverb/Flebay.
