let's see what you got
Just pick up a Gibson and learn how to adjust the height. I'd leave the boutique stuff alone until you know what a P90 is all about.
I know what a p90 is all about and me likey, but I think I prefer it in the neck position.
I'm not sure what exactly I'm looking for in my bridge, but I think it's something with the warmth and fatness of a p90 with the rawness and roaryness of a humbucker.
I got a harmonic design s90 or whatever it's called in the bridge it's good and crunchy - kent armstrong in the neck - nice tone crunchy is a good description
I don't remember the exact model, but the 'bucker sized Kent Armstrong 'P90' in my Warmoth mahogany/maple Tele has those qualities. It really captures a wide range of tones.
thanks guys, the kent armstrong p90 sounds pretty good, do oyu guys know if you have the high output or low output, i guess ill assume the high output since its in the bridge
i really didnt like the s-90 demo videos i heard on youtube :\ way too thin for my taste
im looking for fat and crunchy, maybe buckers are the route to go
They definitely sound bigger and fatter than the youtube clips would lead you to believe....it's a fantastic pickup. Fat and crunchy are exactly how I would describe the S-90.
"Thin" is virtually the last thing that comes to mind when I think of the S-90. Mine's easily thick enough to carry an Esquire.
ill definitely have to go over some more cips then
Bridge: Late '60s Gibson sticker'd T-Top 7.67K ohms
Neck: Mid '70s Gibson P-90 8.41K ohms
RS 500K V&T, Sprague Vitamin Q .1uF
Working the volume and tone produces a great variation of tone here -
This sounds especially great on the bridge through a JTM circuit and OD pedal and crunches the 5E3 big time; the neck is sweet and round running clean into a BFDR.
Who makes that? Gorgeous....
Thanks - look here
that's the bridge pup hes playing right? damn so close to my ideal tone, so close to the kind of music id be playing....damn
sounds like the amp might be doing more than the guitar though...can anyone comment how much of this is s-90 contributed? and what else is close to this? i'm looking for a little less brightness and scream than this, and a little more crunch and groan
I find a Tele and dual p90's to be a match made in heaven for Blues/classic rock...
what p90s are these?
Those are Lindy Fralin (stock Bridge and 15% underwound in the neck)...with 375K Volume/tone pots.
Very impressive work! I bet it sounds even better than it looks.
how would you describe the tone, got any demos/clips?
No clips....yet....I would describe the bridge as a cross between a Les Paul Junior and traditional Tele (lots o crunch with a hint of twang). The neck is more like a fat Strat neck tone. Lots of funk in the middle position. It'll cover Stones to SRV with no problem.
