Nothing beats P-90s, IMO. My favorite pickups of all time. A great vintage one is really something special.
My 62 SG Special and 59 LP Special are my favourite gigging guitars. Vintage P90s are brilliant.
The pickups on that ES-350 don't look like P90s to me - are they humbuckers in dogear covers?
The P90 in the neck position on my 60' ES330 is probably my favorite even compared to my PAF guitars. Just the right amount of clarity and midrange grind when pushed.
I unfortunately had to sell a '58 ES-225 TD. I probably could have avoided it and regret it in retrospect. Those 2 P90s sounded unbelievable. I currently have a '74 LP Special '55 reissue and those P90s also sound amazing. They are all noisy as all get out though.
Meh, in my opinion. I like his playing and I like the tone -- I've got nothing negative to say -- but in the world of guitar tones, this is nowhere near amazing. To me, it's actually rather generic and replaces touch and expression with a hot rasp. It's just me, I know, but I'm not going for this, personally. I think I'd like it a lot more played on a different guitar!
I think it was more the drummer overplaying the piece and stepping all over it (theatrics be damned).
I think it kicked butt, nice guitar tone and playing from a members. Nothing beats Ozzies vocals on that song though.
J.D. Simo makes this single-P90 Epiphone Casino sound pretty damned good, and I generally used to turn my nose up at single-pickup ES-330s/Casinos. The center position always put me off. Maybe no more!
Killer guitar tone and killer players!
There is really something special going on with the 65-69’ Gibson p-90’s....wound a little bit hotter and really have a sweet spot.
if it’s too noisy= learn to use the volume knob...the noise is part of the tone!
Well, back to the woodshed. Thanks a lot. ; )
They look like humbuckers that Seymour Duncan makes. I had one that was his EVH version.
I wish I could get my Special to sound just like that! I know,I know, it's the Indian not the arrow!
But the soapbars to me seem a tad more polite than the dogears.
I have a 70s Japanese Casino with dog ear P90s. Not sure what kind they are because there are no markings of any kind and wired with RCA plug connectors! They sound incredible.
That **** was bad a$$
Smokin and trippin is all you know, man
