Great to see my old mate Warren the other day and a huge privilege to have him using one of my pickups. If you don’t know his music yet:
I’ve fitted one of my ‘Black Sand’ humbucker size P90s in the neck position of his es335. Here’s how it sounds:

I’ve had this 335 for a while now, and while I love how it sounds, I always wanted a bit more clarity and chime from the neck pickup. My old friend @mrglynsguitars in NZ has been winding his own pickups, and I decided to try his humbucker sized P90 in this guitar. I think he delivered in spades, even with a fair bit of gain it manages to stay clear and focussed. Plugged straight into the @soldanocustomamplification SLO100.
I can’t describe the satisfaction I get from hearing something I’ve made sound so good in the hands of such a musician – and to think, I call this work!
