    Hey guys - I hope all is well! I was noodling around on my 59 Les Paul DC clone (P90s) and captured this on my pocket recorder. Inspired by Jimi's Catfish Blues. These P90's sound killer. Please let me know what you think. Thanks!

    Thanks Johnny! I'm plugged straight into a Friedman PT20 head using a 2/12 cab.

    Here's the guitar: LSL Topanga

    Thanks Boney! LSL claims they wind the pickups inhouse.

    I really like that tone, it sounds like the bridge pickup mostly?

    I haven't listened yet but will later today. But funny thing - I was watching some YT vids last night, will have to go back to see which ones, when a great player was playing a 'LSL' (actually I thought the headstock said 'L&L') guitar, and I was like, dang I never heard of that brand, and it sounded great. And here is a post of your LSL guitar. LOL.

    Yes, trivial things like that blow my mind, for I am a simple man!

    I'm telling ya, I got an itch to swap out my stock humbuckers on my EPI to P-90, every time I hear some vids or sound files that feature P-90s I always come away impressed.

    Come to think of it, was it Matt Schofield playing a LSL Strat??? No P-90s but still, I believe it was.

    Hey Steves - LSL is known for their vintage type Strats and Teles, so Matt could have been playing an LSL Strat.

    I like humbuckers too. I wouldn't swap one for the other. They are both great pickups in their own way. I say get a guitar with each. :)
