Does anyone know about any pickups that give a Fender-like tone that will drop into a humbucker slot? The Wide Range pickup is the closest I can find, but it has a different size/shape.

 

Off to GUITARFETISH Website you go! Humbucker-sized P-90s Glore - Dream 180s, Dream 90's...

Gotta remember, though, a Fender pup has a BRIGHTER sound than a P-90, which has a more mid-range,

VINTAGE rock sound than a humbucker. Like a Single coil on steroids (P-90s). A bit of Tone/volume/Amp

tweaking, and meh... You'll find the tone you seek.

Just have to remember - P-90 style pups are not as BRIGHT sounding as single coils. They can, however,

produce everything from sweet Blues to crunchy vintage rock tone (think 70's Mountain/Mississippi Queen),

and beyond.

I LOVE GFS Pups. Cannot compare to Gibsons, but they sho' am easy on the pocket!!!!

I'm sure others can add to this....

Thanks a lot animalfarm. I want to experiment with p90 sounds also when I get to change pickups, so I was looking at a p90 in the neck and a Fender humbucker in the bridge. Thankfully, guitarfetish.com has versions of both these pickups that drop int standard humbucker routs. Thanks a lot!

Thanks guys. I just ordered the Epi Les Paul Studio, Ebony (couldn't find in arctic blue :() from Amazon. Since my dad is bringing it from abroad, I'll get by Jan-end. Thanks!

Congrats Martin, good decision, I'm sure you'll be very happy with it.

I gotta say I was fairly impressed with the Epi Jr.

 

I bought this one for a hundred bucks about 6-7 years ago as kind of a "beater" and maybe a mod project. I figured I would definitely replace the stock humbucker for a Mean 90 or similar, but I have to say - I really like this humbucker! And I also REALLY like the neck on this one.

 

Tuners are the weak spot, but they work well enough that I have just left them in.

So, anyone know the string gauge on this? I wanna know what i should upgrade to if this is too fat or thin. Also, the serial number doesn't seem to fit the standard epiphone format. THe serial # is 11021508238. No letters.

By the way, greg (animalfarm) was one of the biggest contributors to this post. He is no longer with us, may he rest in peace. [crying] [crying] [crying]
