    I have a 51 P knockoff , and was thinking I could route open a space for a MM bridge pickup.

    Does anyone know if the string spacing on the P is too wide/narrow to make this work?

    Many thanks in advance!

    Should be about the same. I'd be more worried about what it looked like, though. To get it in the same spot as a MM, I think you'd have to cut the pickguard and the pickup would be half in the pickguard and half in the wood, which would look hideous.
