awesome guitar! I modded it for you for free....
That guitar started with a standard 6 point trem and had the 90s blocky contours. I carved the contours to be more Fullerton style, opened up the carve inside the bottom horn and routed it for the Floyd.
I had never seen a guitar with P90s and a Floyd. It's definitely a fun guitar for sure.
Also, the P90s fit the Swimming Pool route without any extra routing contrary to popular belief.
Had them Statesboro Blues...
I’m a psychologist. Here are some strategies. Don’t watch YouTube videos of the guitar you want. Watch videos of the guitars you already have. When you start to crave the P 90s, play the guitar you like best that you have. Also, consider which of your guitars you would trade for the one with P 90s. Maybe it is possible to sell one and get another. If you realize there is none you would trade for the P 90s, that logically means you like the ones you have better. My last idea, is to tell yourself you will in fact get the guitar with P 90s once you find the perfect one someday at an excellent price. As time goes on the craving will diminish and you will see you did not need it to satisfy the craving after all.
PS: Maybe I should get one.
I have one with p90s. I just want a TELECASTER with p90s now. lol
Do it (this is NOT a 12-step program)! LOVE the Nazareth reference!
Guitars are like pocket knives. It’s better not to keep count.
Sounds like you need a G-L ASAT special.
I don't think I'll ever own a G & L.
Black guard, please, a black guard.
That’s actually neeeeed, the number of ‘e’s relates directly to the real need. The more the farther you’re talking want not need. As soon as GAS sets in, the line gets blurred!
I agree, GAS has to be cured or at least in remission.
By the way, I took the Taylor back, (found out I am not a Taylor guy pretty quick) and swapped it our for a Martin Road Series GPC-13E. As a working musician I don't need or want to spend a fortune, if I can find a player that punches way above it's sticker price.
Edited to add: Mine is solid Mutenye back and sides, instead of rosewood.
Great workhorse for studio or performing. All solid wood, (unlike the $ 1,699.99 Taylor) using no ply or laminates. Though it does have a Richlite fingerboard. Last acoustic/electric I'll ever need in this lifetime. If I need a 12 string I'll borrow
Yeah, I'm not wild about that tort either. I have a G&L Kiloton bass in that same finish and I had a vintage pearl pickguard made for it.
For the ASAT I was thinking that medium grey or black would look much better.
Look at me. I've gone from musician to fashion maven. LOL
I like P90's two seemingly contradictory ways. I like them a lot:
1) On an LP Jr. or something like one.
2) On a jazzbox.
That makes it a pretty versatile pickup, I think.
I make no declaration as to being an expert, I just prefer black guards and think, on that guitar, it would take it from great to stunning!
Always good to field some thoughts from others.
I knew when I bought it that it would need to be changed but since G&L won't provide an assortment of pickguards for Tribute models I've had to deal with it on my own as I did with the Kiloton Bass.
They did have one single white pickguard in their store so I bought it thinking I could simply refinish it in whatever color I chose. I just haven't gotten around to it yet.
