If only P90's didn't hum so badly. They seem to have more hum than Strat single coils.Sometimes?
It's hard to find a time when Buckers sound better than P90's. But I'm biased.
Just play a guitar with two P90's and leave the switch on the middle setting. Then just as you start to play, flip the switch to which ever pup you want and no one will hear the hum. My home has pretty quiet electrical wiring because my P90 guitars don't hum loudly. It's not much louder than buckers. If I'm playing out, I need to use the middle setting trick.If only P90's didn't hum so badly. They seem to have more hum than Strat single coils.
I have not found a noiseless version of either that gives me a tone that's close enough to the original tone that I could keep them in my guitar.
The noiseless versionsall sound a little dull or compressed or something.
MY BKP Nantuckets are not humcancelling/noiseless, but they are quieter than regular Gibson P90's.
They're close enough to keep and they sound very good, but I like the tone of Gibson P90's a little more.
I think he was just posing with that guitar! Where's the guitar strap?
It's a special DC , they came out in '60 and the strap is one of those chic skinny leather ones , look close. There are re-issues around for very reasonable $ All truely great artists have played Soapies at one point~
