    Lovely instrument with a fantastic set up, performs way beyond it's price point. I always refer to the Vintage series as complete Epiphone killers. Stock pickup replaced with an Oil City Firewatch P90, upgraded pots to vintage open back type, and a paper-in-oil capacitor. Hell of a guitar for...

    Hello Friends I'm a Brit living in Bulgaria and I've been playing metal guitar since 1988. I'm a big lover of the guitar tones found in older metal (like the header says, I absolutely love P90 pickups) and my favourite kinds of metal are NWOBHM, doom, thrash and proto metal. All time favourite...

    It's been a while since I've built anything guitar related, so, here we go... The P90 pickups I made for the eight string sounded so much better than the original pickups that making a set for a seven string needed to happen. This is their story, already in progress… The bobbin bottoms...

  5. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I'm definitely thinking P90's for the 470S, whether I go Phat Cats or something else, not sure... So, what sort of middle pickup would balance well? If it helps at all, I prefer bright pickups over dark ones.

    Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I have an old LP JR and nothing sounds as good as this guitar. Why do P90's not get any hype? I never hear anyone spouting off about them as I do the new "flavor" of the week PU's? Have you guys tried them? I mean hell...tuned down they sound great....everything I play through them at any...

    Where the hell can I find them? So far i've found Ivory (which looks almost yellow) and Cream..... i've found bone white soapbar P90 covers but dog ear versions apparently don't exist. :shrug:
  8. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Hey guys, This may be a real dumb question, but I'm kinda knew at this. Not to mention naturally curious lol. Has anyone had experience with P-90 single coil pickups, was the experience good or bad, and why? The reason I ask is because my current axe is a PRS SE Soapbar II, with obviously dual...

    I have pickups on order... The guitar is going to have a humbucker in the bridge and a p90 in the neck. Is there a way so that with a 4pdt switch I can get Pos 1: Humbucker Pos 2: Split Humbucker + p90 Pos 3: p90 Thanks!

    After reading several threads on mylespaul I have decided I needed opinions from people who own high gain amps :cool:
  15. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Well I wasn't sure if this would go in this forum, or another designated for pickup related stuff... but being that we're talking about guitars here, I thought it would be best to post here. Anyways, I've always wanted a Les Paul gold top (with the p90's) but can't afford to pay 30 grand for one...
