  1. P90 Metal covers

    14 March 2017 - 08:24 AM

    Hi again
    I am still trying to find a P90 that sounds as good as the one on my Casino Elitist. They are going to replace a set of P100 on a LP DC.
    The hum coming from the plastic ones are too much for me but I have also realised that plastic covers sound different than metal covers and my Casino has dogear metal ones. Since it's the sound of the Casino I am trying to get close to on the LP I now look for black metal covered P90s. Preferably sounding much like the Gibsons in my Casino.

    But does that exist.....

    PS Sorry for still posing on this subject but it's really difficult to find any first hand knowledge around here. Also you may wonder why I don't just use the Casino. It's because it feeds uncontrollably on certain overdrive settings and I want to keep the changing of guitars on stage to a minimum.

    All the best

  2. P100 alternative

    26 February 2017 - 06:43 AM

    Hi there
    Does anybody know of any P100 alternatives. Like many others I absolutely love the P90s but the hum issues are a problem. I don't hate the P100s which I have on a LP Special DC (The top model from the 90s, not faded or anything like that) but they are not as nice as the P90s in my Casino Elitist. The P100s are too hot and also a little too trebly for my liking but like I said, it's not bad, I just wish it had a little more detail and warmth.
    So does anybody make a fairly noiseless P90 that sounds like the real deal or will I just have to work with the P100s.

  4. Replacing P100

    23 October 2016 - 01:43 PM

    Hi there
    I will buy a LP Special (1997) soon and I will probably replace the P100s with P90s. Am I correct in assuming that there are no specific bridge/neck versions so all I have to do is to buy two Gibson P90s, solder a little and I am ready to go.
    Basically I want a Casino with no feedback issues and this seems to be a good solution. I am aware that the newer ones are born with P90s but I also want a tuneomatic bridge and the reissues come with the wraparound which I'm not crazy about.

  5. Les Paul Special DC Faded

    14 October 2016 - 07:22 AM

    Hi everybody
    I am currently shopping for a LP DC (I think) and have just realised that the discontinued faded model may very well be almost ideal for my purpose.

    The reason why I'm looking for one of these is that during a number of recent recording sessions I have used a Casino Elitist (please notice "Elitist", not the cheap ones) and I ended up loving the P90s. The DC model from the 90s have P100s and the older and newer ones don't have a tuneomatic but.....(drum roll) the faded version from the 00s have both P90s and tuneomatic.

    I am going to tour with some of the recorded stuff and the Casino is just impossible to control feedbackwise so I will have to find a solution and the Les Paul Special DC seems like the best contender.
    The tuneomatic is essential because I will install a Duesenberger Les Paul Trem II on it and so the question really is "are the pickups the real Gibson P90s". I assume that they are since the faded models normally are real Gibsons but with sloppy cosmetics (meaning excellent to touring).

    PS I wasn't planning on buying a "cheaper" Gibson, it just seem like the ideal model for the purpose.

    All the best
