I've said it before, that P90 LPC on the left is my favourite guitar on the forum.

Those are the "staple" pickups, right? What's the deal with them?

Solid pickup options too.
A friend lent me a pair of Aldrich but the hole has been drilled for direct mount. Still trying to figure out how to mount it to a pickup ring lol.
There are pickup plates that you can buy, that go under the pickup. I've got some somewhere. If I can dig them up I'll take a pic.

You could probably drill the hole out more and fit a rivet nut in there, or I could 3d print you a threaded piece to slide over the ear of the pickup to add a thread :-)

I can't put my new one down. 👌
I‘d love to try a newer spec'd one like yours at some point!

Right hand side LP for me all the way, that burst is ethereal.

I’ve installed the Gotoh locking tuners. Also swapped the bridge pickup to a T Top which was originally from my ‘79 Silverburst.

Come play mine, and bring one of your SLOs with you :wave:

Do you have a B.A.D made one, or are they both older? The newer ones seem pretty awesome with that depth mod coming stock now.

Both are older ones, a 2010 and a 1993. I had depth mod done on a HR50+ I had, and ended up turning it all the way down anyway since I tune low lol.
