Cool topic...
I am very interested in the P-90s in the Rick...I wonder if the sum of it is really good??
Then again, the filtertrons seem like a REALLY awesome idea for the Rick.
Even better,imho.
Thus I am conflicted...
.....and yeah I put Lipsticks in my Strat back in 96....and it DID Rock.

... and what are the Bareknuckle P90s like? I've heard the really high gain Nailbombs and really like them; so wondering what the much more gentle P90 are like?

They are gentle with a wonderful clean sound. Probably the lowest output volume wise of my gits but with the purest sound. Although the shape of the guitar make it look like its ready to thrash the reality is it can do that through to folk.

Its an instrument made from the highest quality materials, which gibbo would struggle with..

P90s???

Love 'em

2006 LP Melody Maker. Has a real Gibson P90, I call it 90% of a Les Paul Junior for 1/3 the price!!!



I recently picked up this 2004 PRS SE Soapbar for a great price, it has had a hard life, lots of dings and scratches, needed some work, but it plays nice now. Wide/fat neck + P90s = great gigging guitar


I put P90s into other things too.

Teles


Resonators

I'm Blaming Barry for this one lol!
With all this talk of bacon an a guitar show other week i took my Korean Tokai Les Paul copy with me traded it against this little beauty...



It's a Burny RTV 70 From 2003 i think..
It's not the earlier Burnys as they had Silkscreen decals an strip tuners with supergrade name on headstocks ...
The nearest we found was the RTV 70 which was made in japan...
The only damage was the strap buttons been relocated at some point....
Very nice playing an very resonate guitar... Well put together an one little surprise was a long tenon neck joint...

It was worth the trade an the £70 notes that went with the Tokai....
The Body looks 3 piece but the neck looks one piece bar the 2 small wings for the headstock..
Proper Gibson style truss rod..Though the bridge is going to get change as its the wrong intonation stagger on it...
But bar that a really well put together an finished 9 year old guitar..
If anyone has any info please let me know ..

Remember that was Barrys fault an i'm sticking to my story.... lol!

Plus here's My other slice of Bacon which is a Richwood Thinline Tele copy....
Had this a few years now an love this thing to death...
Another Guitar show moment of weakness.... So Happy


There is my P90 Squire custom11 in black as well but i need to get some decent pics of her as she's my first one to get my p90 groove on....

The World needs more bacon...

Hey, I'll gladly take the rap for the Burny! Shweeeet!

And that Richwood is gorgeous. Love a Thinline, but with P90's? Gotta sound great!

She sure is SHWEEEEET... Real good offer to pass up as been after a nice Junior for ages.. Getting into the single pickup volume an tone twisting an getting some great results...

The Richwood sounds like two tele's ... Its a monster an fuller sounding than the Baja tele i have... Really good slide guitar too but it just sings..

think i need another P90 fiddle an tempted with the Gibson studio Les Paul 50 or 60 with a gold top if one pops up cheapish.... Think the 50 one with the fatter neck as starting to get into bigger necks lately...

Two Shaftesbury LP Specials and one Arbiter LP Junior.

I restored the yellow Junior last week. The other two I did about a year ago.

All early to mid 1970's Japanese. I had all of them out today so decided to do a photo.

This will divide opinions i think ???

Here's my latest buy from a guitar show..
It's a MICK ABRAHAMS Signature Series Vintage.....
Very nice guitar though pick ups are now Axesrus early 50 p90s instead of the stacked humbucking originals..
Sounds a lot better for it though the originals weren't too bad, just abit flat sounding...

I've never been much of a fan of the SG, but I do have three Vintage guitars including the Lemon Drop LP, and I love 'em all. That one's gotta sound fantastic wif P90's in her eh?

Vintage is not without its minor quirks, but on the whole they're great value and they sound terrific!

I think that for the money Vintage guitars are very good. Mahogany body, set neck etc.

Lets face it, much of the vintage Japanese kudos is bull anyway. Some of the old Jap stuff can be rubbish and a loads of modern Chinese stuff is far superior.

Agreed hoax, ever had your hands on a Burns club series? I play on a friends Cobra with the trisonic sc's built in China and that is a remarkable guitar, fit and finish is sublime. Recommended.

Great guitars for not a lot of money...
Do have a(prs rip off) vrs one which has a neck problem but thought i give it a go with the SG an glad i did...
She does Barry and really likes overdrive an really sings her headstock off

Very true Hoax there is a lot of snobbery around with Korean ,Chinese an Indian Guitars compared with japanese stuff. It seems that a lot of people jump trends and miss out on a lot of excellent guitars on this market...

Duofuzz has a Chinese player series Nusonic burns with 2 tri sonics in an a 16K humbucker which is a great guitar.. Burns, Squier, Vintage, De armond an all come recommend in my eyes...

BTW Hoax, It was ME that had to change the pickups on G.A.S. man's SG! Chores 3 I wanna retrial!!!

The original Wilkinson pickups sounded a bit flat so Steve decided to upgrade them. Turns out the originals a actually stacked humbuckers using two P90 coils with the magnet stuck between them. The pickup routs need to be deeper than normal and the new pickups dropped way to far into the body.

These P90's don't use springs to adjust the height, just foam padding which gives about 4mm of travel. I made some wood blocks equal the same height of the missing coil and jammed them tight in the routs, no glue holding them down.

It all worked and they sound great now, although Steve is muttering about changing 500k pots to 250k's! Head Bang Don\'t Know

DAN.
