  3. Ditto, and the Casino comes in second. But since I have a weekly gig on a quay over a salt water lagoon I am reluctant to bring a hollow body guitar to the gig. Too much damp, salty air. So I use the Parker with the P-Rails Custom made for me at the old USA factory. P-Rails plus a Ghost Piezo pickup under the bridge. I can blend the Piezo in with the mags to put more twang into the sound when needed. Notes
  4. I put aftermarket (Guitar Fetish) P90s on an LTD Faux LP. One was reverse wound, reverse polarity. We gigged in one place where there was something wrong with the wiring, hum was everywhere, especially in the guitar. So I switched to both pickups and the hum from the guitar was gone. Why? When you have one P90 RW/RP and use both pickups, it turns it into a giant humbucker. It's the only venue I've ever had a problem with, and speaking with other musicians, they have problems there as well. I'd put P90s on just about anything. But I really don't care for the shape of the Firebird - nothing wrong with it, it's just not for me. If I were to buy a Gibson P90 guitar, I'd probably get a red SG. Insights and incites by Notes
  5. "Kid Charlemagne" - Steely Dan https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJ9Xk-VoGqo One of my favorite Dan songs. Larry Carlton does a great guitar solo and Bernard "Pretty" Purdie, who is one of my favorite jazz/rock drummers lays down a great groove.
  6. Another option: Get humbuckers, and replace them with Duncan "P-Rails" with "Triple Shot Rings". The TSRings have two tiny slide switches on them, and you can make them sound like P90s, Rails, Series Humbuckers, or Parallel Humbuckers. The P90 sound is very good, a little brighter than soap bars but close enough. The Rails are the weakest in output, but if you use both together they sound very strat-ish The humbuckers can sound pretty close to a PAF or Mini depending on whether you use series or parallel. They fit in a standard humbucker cavity, and when I had my custom Parker made, I had the factory install them. My Parker is now a "Swiss Army Knife" of guitars.
  7. P90s - IMHO the best pickup ever made (so far) Most people who play P90s exclusively for a year, can't go back to any other kind of pickup because they just sound dull. Notes
  8. "Have You Met Miss Jones?" - jazz standard by Rodgers and Hart - my favorite version is by Stan Getz
