Dirt cheap setup (guitar, pups and amp) for $450.
Pics or it didn't happen!
Took my LP Tribute and old SG Classic out to a gig last night. P-90 goodness reigned! One guy said, "You really get that old Santana sound." Imagine....
@DrBGood share more, please!
@Biddlin this is about your experience, your playing. Not just pups, pedals or amps. I am sure you can nail Santana sound with cheaper guitars, amps, and pedals.
Sanford Magnetics P90s. Unfortunatly, they aren't available anymore.
If you want more clips from me, go on my Souncloud page from the link above.
Cool Special doc. And a color I don't have, too! What kind of tuners and bridge?
@HackeIommi Guess what I paid for the SG Classic? (less than $450) To twist a popular quote: People concerned about price usually think they know the price of everything and seldom know the value of anything. It's about the sound of P90s which I thought germane to the topic "
Love me some good P90s !"
The curse of literacy I guess.
No, there is no curse. I actually wrote separately from the topic. I meant, experiences of people like you are way valued than any equipment and I am sure, you can nail any sound and play very good even with a 50 bucks guitar. If there is any misunderstanding I caused, accept my apologies.
BTW, less than 450 bucks for a good SG with P90's is a blessing of course
Please forgive my inference. You are too kind. Whatever and whenever I play I try to be subservient to the music. Although I play a lot, because I love it, I attribute any perceived skill more to grace than personal accomplishment. That said my classical guitar was about $50 and my ability on it reflects poorly on that modest price, but I keep trying.....
Now back on topic, I have more electrics with P-90s than Humbuckers. My go to heavy blues guitars are my Les Pauls with P90s. This is hilarious to me because for years when my one gigging guitar was an ES225TD, I craved humbuckers for loud solo work. Now I can't imagine not having that low-end growl.
What's the guitar with the pinstripes Biddlin?
Cheap $20 tuners and a Musiclily bridge https://www.amazon.com/Musiclily-Tune-O-Matic-Wraparound-Adjustable-Electric/dp/B0757K41W1/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1505693825&sr=8-1&keywords=MX1280CR
Since that photo, I went back to a lightning wraparound. I chaned the original because there was a nasty citar sound I couldn't get rid of. The new one is OK, I like it's simplicity better than an adjustable. Sanford Magnetics pups, I found used for $100.
What about the title, did I curse anything ?
Three P90's! What a lovely piece!! P90's are full of surprises! Apart from Iommi, I remember the first time I heard the sound of Leslie West on The Road Goes Ever On. That album impressed me and I went after Mountain band. When I discovered LW is a P90 addicted, a sympathy began for P90's deep inside my heart. Now this forum fired this love again.
I have visions of a good SG with P90s on my mind. @DrBGood you cursed my wallet monsieur These Sanford Magnets are very impressive! Good, open, clear.
Not unless I missed a sacre and I seldom do!
That's my 2013 N225. It's an incredibly versatile guitar although I like it most for heavy blues style leads, like Sam Andrews (Big Brother&Holding co.)
The dirty finger can be split, a feature I seldom use, but when combined with the P-90 it gets a Strat like quack.
Solid Maple neck with slim '60s profile
Rosewood fingerboard with striking block inlays
Gibson P-90 and Gibson Dirty Finger pickup in the neck and bridge positions
Tune-O-Matic bride with vibrola tailpiece
Grover™ tuners with 14:1 tuning ration
The whole album was played on a P90 DC Jr.
Those all look like awesome. The gold top though, that looks fun.... I love a gold top with P 90s. Just looks right.
