SGs need some mass, so maybe the steel version of the Pigtail type bridge? But if you want an alloy Pigtail if got one floating around I can look for.

It would be an abomination to do that.

I think these early 60's P90's don't need any extra oomph...they punch pretty hard. Midrange esp.

Yeah those are quite punchy. Can do a lot with a boost.

You got any experience with those?

One thing I remember about the Pigtail is needing locking studs yet they don't come with any. I cheaped out on my '11 Jr and used stock studs so they'd tilt forward a bit, but it still intonated fine.

Not tried them sorry. True about the pigtail needing the studs.
