What Big Mike said - the T-90 is totally badass, great sounding T style bridge pickup.

More mids that standard, but great clear highs too, it's sounds and feels great.

Thanks, Go Ron, Dana O.

Thanks a ton! I'm glad you're digging them.

I've added the various staple-top models to my first post on page one.

Many thanks,
Ron

Thorn pickups rock! Loving the singles and P90 combo in my R/S guitar - took some time balancing them out, and they sound killer through my '65 Twin Reverb!

How would you compare them to the stock SDs, in general and especially in terms of warmer / brighter? Could you elaborate on the custom wound middle, is it in between the neck and bridge, or underwound for more quack? I also have a CU22 Soapbar Ltd (mahogany / maple top + all maple neck) and though I love it as it is, I've been looking for an excuse to give the famed GT-90s a try... All I need is a little nudge

So Ron or Mike, why are the Pasadena Tele bridge and Pasadena Tele middle not listed that are in my GT-58?

Probably because the tele middle IS the tele Neck.

I forget about the standard (ha!) style tele lead. Badass pickup. First G/T I played had it, really a fabulous and very vintage sounding bridge pickup.

I get so excited over teh GT90T being the P90 slut I am, that I forget about that one.

Plus I don't have a trad style thorn T Shape yet, just the Jr90s.

But give me time...



Daddy wants a double bound, candy red, maple neck GT with the trad. style pickups. mm.
