  2. Yes it plays fantastic, only issue is a little cosmetic damage. Original owner tried a DIY fix on the loose pickguard with super glue.. some on the body but I’m taking it to my Gibson repair guy soon. Does play and look amazing still

  3. I have owned plenty of P-90 equipped guitars over the years, including some Gibsons. Nothing stuck with me. They were great, but they didn't do any one thing good. I sold 'em, in the end. Now. The Yamaha Revstar RS502T that I got much earlier this year; MAN. It's a beast. I can't qualify or quantify why it kicks aS$ in so many ways, but it just does. Yamaha got the P90 right with this one. 🙂

  5. My garage-band-mates and I went to see KISS in Dothan, Alabama in December of 1975. We were just catching onto KISS Alive and Dressed To Kill when we drove down there. We were on the front of the stage, right below Paul Stanley's mic stand. It was a phenomenal and formative experience, let me tell you. To this day, we do at least one KISS song in every live band performance. Doesn't matter what the crowd, event, or venue. Some KISS is going to make it in there. 🙂

  7. Bass players might be more astute than you'd think - McCartney, Sting, Gene, Waters, dude from U2 - all right up their among the wealthiest rockers of all time. They all pay more tax, and likely give more to charity, than any of us here too, so good luck to 'em.

  11. WF.... I'm sure I've told this story before...but I worked in a music store....from '65 thru '67. We got a Hummingbird in. I don't remember the price...but I played it often...and lusted over it....and could have gotten it for the store cost.... but I had no money then. But...even a BIGGER regret is that we took in an old Gibson Gold Top....not in great shape....the manager put it in the broom closet.... one of my jobs was to mop up every night. I saw it in the closet...and asked him about it. He said he paid $13 as a trade-in and I could buy it from him for $13. Well, I said I'd p

  13. I really like a P-90, and though I don’t currently own a guitar with them, I own several modded with pickups designed to have similar characteristics... Fralin P-92s in a Dot, Fralin Steel Pole 42s in a Tele, and Carvin stock S-20s in an SH550.

  15. I have posted this before just a simple explanation plus about reverse coil P90's for hum cancelling.. If you take a P90 part and remove the magnets, you will notice that the magnets are held together in opposing fields trying to push each other apart creating a single magnetic field at both ends of the pup. Just as a note, in a reverse coil pickup the actual polarity is reversed, the coil (bobbin) and magnets are reversed creating an opposite magnetic field. The wiring is the same, if changed it will take the pickup out of phase creating an undesirable effect. If you pla

  16. Yeah, but.......he missed a lot of things. They should have at least shown a dis-assembled P90 so we could see the parts. He says almost nothing about usage during the 1st 30 years from when it was invented. All jazz guitarists of the era recorded with P90 guitars (including Les Paul of course), also Scotty Moore with Elvis, T-Bone Walker, Chuck, B.B., and in the 60s Townshend, Clapton and the Beatles who had Epi Casinos . That's missing a LOT of important P90 history. The clean tone of a P90 is where its unique quality starts. It has a particular zing and more harmonic c

  17. It's worth putting the Louis Armstrong quote into context: "Mr Armstrong, what is your definition of jazz?" "Jazz is what I play for a living." And when asked if jazz was folk music, Armstrong replied - "Man, all music is folk music. You ain't never heard no horse sing a song, have you?"

  20. Speaking of typos... that archived CS-336 spec in the link above has one at least in the way the archive presents it - the 336/356/339/359's are all 24.75" scale guitars in reality (standard Gibson scale). (see here https://www.dropbox.com/s/rmfpzz4d9db3qmh/2006 Gibsom Custom Catalog.pdf?dl=0) I forgot about the Pat Martino model too - generally a small-body semi, but a different single cutaway shape and with the straight-pull headstock.

  22. Hair loss prompted me trimming my hair to 3 (3/8") way back in my 40s. That's when I realised I needed hats. You only become aware of what hair does once its gone. Summer hat: stops your head burning Winter hat: warmth (hair is good for warmth)

  23. What nonsense..,.. How is it passive aggressive to say that he didnt like the way the signature looked? I agree, it did make the headstock look a bit ugly... Doesnt mean for a second we dont have respect for Les Pauls legacy... We are just saying we didnt like the way it looked on the headstock.. Just cos you respect someone, doesnt mean you have to like everything they do or anything to do with them.... Most of us also didnt like the little waving hologram on the back of the headstock.. I thought it looked tacky. Now that was more disrespectful to me, using his image in such a c

  24. We use to have a tradition, when photos were even more difficult to post, of at a minimum telling everyone what The First Song You Played was. I think Gillian Girl started it.

  26. I'll be a peace-maker and diplomat here, and say a quiet prayer for Jim Steinman's family. May he rest in peace, and may they find solace in the notion that he made an impact on the music world for a great number of years. It's not for me to offer a thumbs-up or a thumbs-down to somebody else's favorite band, album, or genre of music. God knows that my cup of tea isn't necessarily going to be your pitcher of martinis. But the man produced some really good records for Michael Lee Aday, Bonnie Tyler, Celine Dion, Air Supply, and Barry Manilow. Okay, I know that that didn't exac

  27. Thanks so much! No apologies.. There are many posts on this board and this has been discussed ad nauseum, I imagine! Thanks for the info and checking! I'm wondering how the notches will line up? Some folks on other boards say that the notches are "progressive" as far as their spacing on the individual saddles. My high E and B, as well as low E and A are slightly off center- more toward the fretboard edges respectively. I guess I'll soon find out- its supposed to be here tomorrow..I'll either be really happy or really frustrated... Brian

  29. Kluson isn't Kluson. It's a company that owns the name, the actual Kluson company went out long ago. Those Kluson style made by Gotoh are problably real good. If they are the same ones I have (Gotoh Kluson's), they are for sure.
