That's a nice bit of playing in that opening session. The black Epi looks cool too.

Define your sound and look for pups tuned that way. I have 2 P90 guitars in reach. One channels Knopfler and the other talks to the Devil.
Interesting. Would it be too much to ask for the neck pickup to channel Knopfler, and the bridge to channel the Devil? Come to think of it, it will end up sounding like 2 guitars.
Could be.... If you did that, I speculate P4 would be the wildcard. Cannot imagine what the blend of low and high output pups would be. But you'd definitely have a guitar of two halves. And that sounds like someone's perfect rig to me.
Now that I've met him, don't ever open a link suggested by Jeremyb......EVER!!!!
Sorry another gushy love my p90s post. These two are made for eachother. Stock p90s back in for now, and they sound good. I had a pair Dimarzio noise cancelling p90s in there but will flick em and try something new.
Have you checked out the Lollar 50s winds? I have GAS

Just from that comparison video above I quite liked the sound of the Gibson ones. I assume those are modern? Still, they seem expensive to bring in just on the shipping alone.
I too think Gibson got it right with the p90's and have no desire to swap brands (and that's coming from a habitual pickup changer) Dunno....maybe a mag swap in the epi pups might be worth a punt. I'm guessing they would be ceramic and could/would benefit from some Alnico goodness..might get you in the ballpark. This could also address the imbalance between bridge and neck with differering strength mags. e.g A2/3 in the neck and A5 in the bridge.
Good a thread as any to ask my question. I have the 2019 SG special, P90’s. Has the pcb wiring thing, which I’ve no doubt I wouldn’t even know if I didn’t open it up. However now I know, and I don’t like it! Give me old school (esp 50s wiring). I’ll go for a kit though given my skills with a soldering iron. How does this look?
