If you had shrill tone that you had terribly P90s. P90s have produced some of the most iconic tones in rock, and good ones are amazing. Bad ones, though, can suck in a big way.P90's can sound ok sometimes (heavily overdriven slide guitar) but don't warrant any kind of guitar butchery, unless you're taking one out ;-)
On my only axe from the mid 80's to the mid 90's, a '65 SG JR., the shrill tone and hum had me yanking it out for a Duncan Distortion and it stayed that way until I changed it back to sell/trade it.
I already did thatI don't facebook but if I did I would offer him an Excellent condition Starfire III-P90 in trade so he wouldn't cut up the 60 model. The the 60 model would be in safe hands.layful: That is if he is located in the States so we don't have to go through all the CITES BS.
Cool, Honestly even though an early Starfire III would be nice and that looks like a nice example, I would hate to get rid of my SFIII-90. One of my Favorite electrics of all time.I already did that
Although the SFIII-90, despite being worth less, is possibly a rarer animal
Quite possibly there wasn't anything terrible about the original P90 in my SG. It just didn't have what I needed to play hard rock, more AC/DC than Mountain ;-)If you had shrill tone that you had terribly P90s.
