Consider the string lock tying method and using Bens Nut Lube.
If you wanna keep the P90's I think you'll have to wrap some 220-grit sandpaper around a 1X1 stick of wood, after easing the edges of said stick, and make the pickguard fit. Not sure I've seen a pickguard for p90's and a 5120.
As was said earlier, if you want 'the' Gretsch sound go with Filtertron style pups, but it's your call of course. Personally, I like the look without a pickguard. Again, that's your personal preference/playing style. Not sure I'm totally used to playing mine without one, but I'm committed at this point. I use my pinky as a 'brace', and without one I use the neck pup edge. Still feels odd, but as I said I'm committed. Can't bring myself to remove it from my Les Paul however. Sorry Slash, I'm more Jimmy Page.
I put the P-90’s in so I’m definitely keeping them. They’re stock size to the guitar. All of the G5120’s came with humbucker sized pickups so a pick guard that came in the bag labeled 5120 should fit. I might save the pick guard for future use and paint the back of the clear one.
That silver pickguard looks like its for filtertrons
