The electronics are worse than the pickups...I'd suggest an RS upgrade kit to go along with the pickups you choose...

You might be able to shoe-horn them in, since the Epi's are routed for 'metric'-sized pickups...SD's, DM's & Gibson's are 'inches' measure, and might be a little big for the rout...you might have to get creative... :cool:

Is that the goldtop with the P-90s? If so, you may be stuck with trying to find better P-90s. A new wiring harness would make a huge difference in that guitar, too. I'd try the wiring, pots and caps first and see what that does to those stock pups. Then, look for some decent replacement pups. If you really want humbuckers, you may need to break out the router and then get some oversized rings.

Mini humbuckers or firebird pickups will fit in a p-90 slot
you will need the proper mounting ring like an old les paul deluxe
