. P90s to me are like a ready bar room brawl any time you want it, and that you'll want it again the next night. Remember that humbuckers were designed to mimic P90s but give noise reduction. They traded off great tone to get noise reduction. Humbuckers can start to be fizzy where a P90 growls and bites. Or like two saws where one has half the teeth of the other and which will tear and rend more? The Tele bridge pickup, with a steel baseplate, is very similar to a P90. As if Leo found a way to make a P90 output with a lot less wire and smaller magnets all for cheaper production. His goal was to sell amplifiers with a side of guitars while Gibson's goal was to sell guitars with a side of amps. .
