    This may sound a little crazy, but two suggestions if you haven't tried 'em:
    - Paul's Guitar
    - McCarty 594

    In all seriousness, both guitars cut out a lot of the midrange congestion that PRS guitars can have through some amps.

    I have a PG but it's in a vault 5000 miles away. The 594 isn't for me.

    I would be interested in hearing a 25.5" scale guitar with narrow 408's. The Brent Mason is close (25.25" scale) but looks more like a Strat than a PRS. I suppose I could send an alder-body 305 to the PTC for a Brent Mason pickup combo.

    How did you know? :)

    I was going to suggest a McKorina Soapy earlier, but the scale length is regular 25", so it didn't really seem down your alley.

    And no, you can't have mine. :D

    I have heard the Fralin's are nice.

    I tried the Kinman Humless Humbucker sized P-90's in my Gene Baker b3 SL, and really liked them.

    I am having another b3 SL made with the P-90 shaped Humless Kinman's in it, and I plan to take these ones above and put them in one of my 594's. I have also considered doing a 594 PS with the P-90 shaped ones, wanted to see how there are in the SL first.

    They are sweet sounding, bright and clear, without being too bright. The neck one is very sweet, smooth and clear! The bridge one is clear and bright but not thin, and both sound great clean or with varying amounts of gain.

    I am also on the hunt for an SSS or HSS Strat sort of guitar, but I haven't found one that really floats my boat yet...

    Google Photos issue. Pain in my ass for years on the Forums. I have since switched to Photobucket, but was too lazy to export that file and re-import to Photobucket.

    I will try to do that later, but in the meantime:



    I have those same ones, with the Black covers. Good demo!

    Here's the P-90-shaped ones:

    Ok boys, it's not a long scale but we'll see whether or not a Korina McCarty with soapies does the trick.

    Should he here in a few weeks.

    Hans!!!! What's up, buddy?

    I have been on a P-90 and single coil kick as well. I have most of my single coil wants, so it's P-90 time!!! I kind of want a triple P-90 axe, but I am concerned my pick constantly hitting it would bother me. I need to try a few before ordering one. Good luck with the new fiddle. I hope it gets there safely.

    I hear you brother!!! I think we are ageing like fine wine!!!

    I actually thought this might have been the outcome of PRS and John Mayer, as opposed to the LP direction!!

    I suspect I'll be trying one of these too. Do you get good middle tones from position 2 and 4?

    That Crossroads show was awesome... I play the DVD all the time when doing work on my guitars...

    As for phatcats... ymmv, but I much preferred Gibson P94s when I was playing around with hb-sized P90s... the phatcats were too dark for me, and the Gibsons seemed to growl with more authority...

    I had the p-90's in my long gone Blues Hawk ant it was an absolute screamer. I traded it for my first Ce 24 and am very happy now.
