  • Let's talk hollowbodies with single coil pickups.

    I like the traditional mid-scooped nature of most Fender single coils, but I've always enjoyed the resonance and character of hollowbody guitars. Are there any hollows or semi-hollows out there that use traditional single coil pickups? Not looking for mid-heavy raunch generally associated with p90s - looking more for a big, resonant Telecaster neck pickup. Thoughts?

      The Gibson ES-120T/Epiphone Grenada used a Fender-ish single coil.

        Eh, I'm kind of searching for bigger bodies. P90s would be fine, but I can't stand the nasally, caricature-ish honk that so many makers think they should have.

          Well, there were plenty of Gretsch and Guild options with DeArmonds.

              Anything with a Dynasonic ought to do it.

              Or a low wind P90. Those don't have the big mids.

              Something with mini humbuckers is pretty bright, too.

                I can make P90 sized pickups that sound more like a Strat than a P90.

                Just an option to think about.

                  I put P-Rails in a semi-hollow. Can switch between humbucker, P-90 and single coil.

                    These are, like, $2 a pop. They make a tele bridge version, a tele neck version, and strat versions, so you could go with a tele bridge, and whichever neck p/u you wanted.







                    You could get a decent hollow/semi hollow fairly cheap (Ibanez offers numerous widths and thicknesses for reasonable prices, but there are many others), some pickups, these adaptors, and have exactly what you wanted at a decent price.

                      I'd love to hear that setup.

                        I've got a 64 ES-330TDC that has P-90,s on it.I bought it new and I love it.Nothing else I've ever had sounds like it.I rarely gigged with it because it"s' a true hollowbody,not blocked like an es-335.Gibson later changed em from 19 to 16 frets showing,so the necks would'nt seperate.If you can find one at a vintage place near you,try one.I've seen em in GC,s platinum room for about $3000 to 4000.
