I've been checking out a bunch of different guitars with P-90's the last few weeks
and I am totally sold on how great they sound.
The lows are warm and woody without turning to mud and the highs are both warm and crisp and musical without getting shrill.
What's so amazing is that some of the stock MIK P-90 soapbars are sounding better
overall than some of the finer HB's.
My neighbor picked up this cool little St. Blues Mississippi Bluesmaster with 2 P-90's
and both of us were blown away that this little guitar sounded better than all three
of his very nice Les Pauls.
Also waiting to get my hands on one of the Fender P-90 equipped Thinline TC-90's
Interesting that this Fender has a set neck too. MIK but with a street price of just under $600.00
A/B'ed against his Tele, the P-90's were much more musical overall
with plenty of twang in the top end, but without being so shrill.
Most noteworthy was how responsive they were to guitar settings and pick attack.
They were also considerably hotter than his Shaw HB's in his Les Pauls
without sounding harsh at all.
And mind you again, these were stock MIK P-90's
Just trying to imagine how great a guitar might sound with Fralins or other upgraded P-90's
Totally sold on P-90s for sure!
