    P90's are wonderful. Just the right amount of everything tone wise as far as I'm concerned.

    For me the thing is I don't have a bass most of the time and sometimes I have to go without drums. So I really need low end punch

    You don't need high output for that--but you can get high output P-90 style pickups...

    I'm not sure if I need high output pickups for anything- my guitars have plenty of power

    Well, yes it depends on the type of music & even the song--I have both, but with my LP Copy I didn't seek real high output pickups--just regular.
    And certainly he stock pickups on a Mustang are not high output--but I love how they sound.

    I'd be afraid of feedback if I used HO PU's

    On a hollowbody perhaps--but that depends on amp settings as well--and amp placement
    But high output pickups don' automatically give you distortion or overdrive--they just give you more to play with output wise--you can still get nice clean sounds from them.

    Right but I use a hollowbody 95% of the time on stage

    To be honest a lot of times I find H/O pickup's too dark sounding. My favorite sounding P90 I have is a classic wound. I like a hot strat bridge but not in the mid & neck & my most versatile humbucker is a T top style. My favorite hot humbucker is my Magnums I got from Mike. Those through a Marshall Plexi is hot pickup heaven.
