What about a tweed Fender Champ? You can perhaps buy a newer handwired one. A Champ along with an EQ pedal can get you a lot of cool sounds.Hey Everybody:
I know its been a while but to update:
I am waiting on the remainder of parts to finish this build they are:
a set of kluson tuners, just like the original
wiring harness with bumble bee capacitors (plus jack, switch, etc)
1 custom wound pickup courtesy of Throbak. (after much research, I really like how this will sound with the original p90)
Once these parts are in, I will be reaching out to BCR music to have Greg handle this build. Given the pictures of his restoration work, I think that he seems like the guy to handle this.
Once this is all restored and back to me, a question I have had is what type of amp would be a good compliment to this restored gibson? I understand everyone has their own opinions and what tones we like, but any advice would be appreciated. (sadly sold my only guitar amp years ago haha)
I was thinking about a fender twin reverb, vox ac 15/ac30? any other ideas?
I am willing to bet that is an 80's Dimarzio DLX-1. I have an 80's DLX-1 in the neck position of my '76 Les Paul Deluxe and the P90 Super Distortion in the bridge.The cream pickup looks like a DiMarzio Super Distortion by the way, an great hot pickup
