Here's a couple more hard tails.
And one with an ABR-1 (my '73 had an ABR-1) and a normal placing for the tp.

Found this doing a quick google.
I owned a '73 with a Bigsby. I never bonded with it. It had a small, round, narrow neck, and a very...

3 of my favorite low volume solutions.
Behringer and Danelectro for the cheap stuff.
I have a Phat Cat in the neck position of my '91 SG Special. It is a sweet and vintage-y sounding pickup. It is very mellow, almost too mellow....
I have a 70's Maestro MFZ-1 which is my main fuzz for 20 years. It does Satisfaction with my ES 330 through my Champ to perfection. Through my...

Would love to see more and better photos.
I guess a sound demo would be too much to ask? :naughty:

You playing a lot of Dead Kennedys with that Strat? That was East Bay Ray's set up; a Strat with a pair of humbuckers. :D
It is tough to find really good Seth Lover demos out there. This guy does a bunch of demos with this guitar with Seth's. Search his channel for...
The P-90 and mini hums that you mention are both excellent choices, and two of my favorites. Mounting them might be an issue,...
I don't think it is possible to say one pick up is "better" than another. Different? Yes. Do I like one and not like another? Yes. But as shown in...
