  • Just gettin no love. Maybe the Geezers?

    I'm all jibbly over my new guitar. My thread sank like a 1/4 oz. Lindy rig over at GJ and EG.



    I picked up an Epi ES-295, factory 2nd (very minor finish flaw at the neck joint).

    P90's, Gold Finish, Bigsby...

    Twang, you geezer, twang!

    Lovely,that has always been one of my all time favourite guitar shapes;so elegant yet so tarty! I bet it sounds great too although I reckon gigging it my become a handful with feedback and hum-but,hey,thats rock and roll and your guitar most certainly is.

      Surprisingly, feedback and hum are not a problem. The body is about 3.5 inches deep, so it's not like a big jazz box. I even tried to get some Nugent-esque feedback going and it wasn't all that easy.

      As far as hum, well, you know me...

        I wondered about how good those were. I've never used P-90's.

        How does the Bigsby work? I have one on a '71/72 Gibson SG, and it's fine as long as I don't use it. If I use it, it typically goes out of tune. I'm interested in a hollow or semi, but I want a hardtail.

        Anything in particular attract you to this guitar?

        Looks nice.

        No offense intended, but (see above) . . .

          I've been gassing for a hollowbody Bigsby for about a year.

          Number one, it's pretty as all hell. The P90's are more my style than 'buckers- never really warmed to buckers. Plus, it's not thin as a 335, but nor big like a jazz box- it's rockabilly right. the p90's are a little warmer than other sc pups I've played- and i've played plenty.

          The thing about Bigsby is, they're not for everyone, and they're not for gymnastics.

          Just a little inflection and mystery.

          If you dive bomb, it will go out of tune. If you play 4 surf songs in a row, you need to retune. That is the price you pay for the mojo of shakin that thang.

          Bigsby's are not floyds, never tried to be. I like 'em, not everybody does. Plus they look cool.

              Nice one! I'm a sucker for P-90s...

                If it were not for the fact that it only comes in that Gold finish, I would probably have ordered that instead of getting the ES135.

                That and the Bigsby...they are too tempting to use, and too hard on the tuning

                I would be willing to bet that it has that rockabilly 'rang-thang' happening! Very 'Scotty Moore'!

                    Dude, I juust picked up a WildKat with the Bigsby removed, and the p-90's RAWK! I love p-90's. I'm selling my Tele and getting a solid body p-90 axe. The ccol thing is you go from Ventures to the Who in one quick channel change. Like you, I never met a Humbucker I liked. As far as the feedback goes, only when I'm standing in front of the amp cranked at unnatural levels, it's a little easier to get tthan a solid body, but that's only in the overdrive channel.
                    Congrats, I'm pretty jibbly over mine, too.

                      RangerKarlos! I just noticed I squeeked into the Geezer Brigade two spots before you. I guess that means I get the clean handle when we have to take out the garbage, eh?

                        My SG Classic (w/P-90's) arrives tomorrow.... Should be fun.

                          This might be a good thread to get a nice single-coil vs. humbucker controversy going, but unfortunately I like both!

                          All this P-90 talk is intriguing. I'm going to have to check some out.

                          GPLAYER, I want to hear about that SG classic when it comes in.

                          No offense intended, but (see above) . . .

                            TZ, are you talking about guitars, motorcycles, or a man's 'state of being'?
