Two options you can go with.  
1st, $40 can get you a rewind, but get it tapped as to select strat or sightly underwound P-90. I installed a variable pot rather than a switch. Be sure to install Alnico2 mags.  
2nd, install Alnico2 mag poles by drilling out the threads for the adj. pole pieces. Very Fendery, lower o/p and if you want to bump them up a bit, replace the base plate with sheet metal.  
Maybe do both as I did. Number one keeps the honk in tact.
