Has anyone got replacement pickups for a Godin 5th Avenue? (P-90type)

Nothing wrong with the stock pickups, just wondering if anyone has tried the options.

Thanks

I have tried three different P90 dog ear pickups in the neck of my Casino Coupe. FWIW.

Thanks, Greco, but I was specifically looking for Godin 5th Avenue pickup changes.

Cheers

I'm assume the pickups you are interested in are dog ear but I don't know the Godin models all that well.
I think the dog ear P90 mounting holes might be somewhat universal but the pickup heights and pole spacing varies. Apologies if you know all of this.

This might be on some interest...

Yes, dog ear. Godin does make their own pickups, not sure if they are standard sizing. Thanks for the charts, they'll come in handy. Probably the best thing is to have a custom pickup maker do it. Someone like Pete at Vintage Vibe.

I bought a Fifth from Tom Lee's. One of twenty of a special order they made with a single TV Jones and no cutaway. Real basic box. Interesting, although I tried the standard P90 in L&M and thought it was great too. Probably the wrong thing to say in this forum but, does it really matter? Can't go wrong, IMO.

The Godin p90s are pretty friggin dull. You can do better anywhere. Duncans! Duncans are great and a decent price. Fralin also makes a great p90 in dogear.

What are you-a flippin' mind reader? :)
I just finished ordering a Fralin neck pickup-standard output.
The sound sample by Chris Whitman on that page is exactly the jazz sound that I want:


Thanks everyone for your suggestions.
