    My only P90 but I love it. I have a thing for woodgrain and simple yet clean lines. I actually prefer the studios due to the lack of binding and other bling.

    Getting a lot of action these days while my SG is out of action for fret work.

    I have 2, an imported Hamer Sunburst and a US Hamer Special. It was kind of an eye opener having both... the import is pretty much better in all regards. Fretwork is better, neck is more comfortable, it's lighter weight, and I prefer the aesthetics. The only plus to the Special is that the Lollar P90s that it came with (I bought it used) sound sublime.

    Do converted guitars count? These are the GFS Mean 90 Alnico pickups in a Hagström Ultra Swede. Sounds pretty gnarly.

    I'd be worried about the structural strength of bending a Bigsby on a full hollow body. Maybe I'm overly cautious, anybody know? I've never seen a Bigsby on a Gibson full hollow body so I'm just extrapolating an assumption.

    Coming from and compared to humbuckers I've discovered you have to boost P90s in some way to get the best out of them. There are many ways to do this.

    Gary Clark Jr. Signature SG with 3 slug magnet P90s, I added the Bigsby


    2018 Les Paul Goldtop Classic with factory Bigsby
    Now with Thorn stapletop GT-90s



    2018 ES-330 red

    Gretsch hollow bodies have had them for, like, forever...:cool:

    Also, you’ll find them on ES 330’s and 175’s, such as:

    I was worried about the same exact thing. I'm not a Scandanavian strongman or anything, but I was afraid that if I got a little too enthusiastic that I'd bust a hole in the guitar when the bigsby is. My tech assured me it's fine because iirc, there's a block underneath that part of the guitar. I've been wiggling away on that thing for almost a year now and it's fine.
