The Pickup sounds nice, not mind blowing. I'm wondering weather to replace it with a mustang pickup. Any tips on what to go for?

Oh, and does anyone know how to adjust the action on one of these?

Turn the two bolts on either side of the bridge saddles to raise or lower the action. You may benefit from a shim at the neck to improve your action. If you need to raise one or two strings, then you could do as Honeyiscool has done in one of his modifications, of a different bridge, and cut shims made from aluminum cans and place them under the saddles.

That p-90 looks interesting! Just wondering if anyone has a manual for the guitar, just want to know more about the bridge before I start messing with it. I'm sure I've seen a link to one on here but cant find it now.

Here's the link, just scroll down and click on the 66 or 73 manual:
