  • best dual P90 guitar for under 1000

    tax return time!!!!!!!!

    looking for a guitar with P90s. been thinking about a crimson red JA 90 tele or possibly the goldtop agile AL 3010 2p90 model. i've read the reviews on both guitars and they both sound pretty sweet, however i wish i could play the agile first. i like that the tele is semi-hollow but that is not a requirement.

    what other guitars should i be looking at? possibly an epi sg?? i am open to suggestions just please under 1k USD, would prefer a used guitar too...

    thanks,

    Bill

            If you like the neck on the 60's TLP, then I agree. The chambering and pickups create a fantastic sound! Even the middle position sounds great. Just in case it's important to you, there is no hum cancel position. But, I find the guitar to be relatively quiet compared to most typical SC guitars. I actually have the 50's Tribute and prefer the thicker neck. But, I think the features, design and sound of both models is are hard to beat. The guitars cover a ton of tonal ground from clean to dirty. One caveat is that the thicker neck 50's model has a slightly different tone than the thiner neck 60's. Whether that is good, bad or indifferent depends on individual preference.
            I don't give a d.a.m.n about hypes, fanclubs or tonal religions. All I care about is what works for me."...it's not religion that's the problem, but any system of thought that insists that one group of people are inviolably in the right, whereas the others are in the wrong and must somehow be punished." ~ Rod LiddleJROCKBRIDGE MUSIC

                USA Hamer is also something to consider.

                        I've been totally feeling the SG classic lately too. Not that the $1000 price tag is prohibitive but I've never spent over $750 for a guitar and I'd like to keep it that way. Also the ones I've tried weren't... IDK they were good but not good enough to plunk down that much money on. It sure is tempting though. I have had horrible SG GAS ever since I saw Zappa Plays Zappa in December.

                            Absolutely. I'd love a Hamer Special.

                              Get one in each color. Set one up for standard playing and the other for slide and still have plenty of dough leftover. I love mine! I dig the stock pups. Even if you don't, you'll have so much spare cash in your wallet that you could go to town on a pup swap.
