Sounds like an exhaustive adventure you went on to get that Classic Player Plus. But it was well worth it, though. Right?!It was a lot of hard work and disappointment, I can tell you!
I documented it in the Cupcake thread as it was happening.
Over the course of several weeks of looking and not finding anything the moment came and I pounced...
Got beat at the bell on Fleabay and lost a beautiful red Les Paul Gem series..
Next week I found a gold top Trad (Classic?).. one owner, was selling it pretty cheap.
By the time I cleared it with my wife on the phone, it was gone right out from under me! Strike two!
I spent the weekend sifting through Reverb and Ebay when finally on page 50 or something on Reverb I found that one!
LOL!!! I got this off an image search!! I'm famous, Amos!
Damn! Got an awesome set of P90s there my friend! It seems like the SG Classic are similar to the SG Specials. At least at first glance. I've been eyeing the SG Special Faded Pelham Blue for a minute.2004 and 2006 SG Classics
Neck: Stock Gibson P-90
Bridge: Kinman P-90 Hx (zero-hum)
2017 '58 Reissue Les Paul Jr DC
Bridge: Fralin Hum-Cancelling P-90
I use the bridge pickup for hi gain without 60 cycle hum and the neck pickup for cleans.
IDK if this is correct, but don't the Gretsch Filtertrons have Ceramic magnets and really high output? Not that I have anything wrong with that. Love me some high gain 'buckers! But I remember when I first heard it, I was especially surprised. Didn't expect to hear those specs out of a Gretsch made product.I totally get that. I like P90s better than humbuckers, too!
I chased humbucker tone for entirely too long, then chased P90 tone, before discovering that I'm after Gretsch Filter'tron tone! Much more clarity, definition, articulate overtones, and sparkle.
I made it happen yesterday!
Aside from a pair of Gibson Classic '57s in one of my Teles (with a 1M Volume pot and No-Load tone pot - which really opens up humbucker PAF-style pickups) I'm done with 'buckers.
Definitely safe to say that! haha Nice collection you got there.
