Crazy! P90's in an S Prestige

Ok Harmonic Design Z90's but they sound just like the real deal. Got a crazy hair brained idea to experiment with a set as I was considering a MM Albert LEE MM90 which has a mahogany body and rosewood neck. Found a set used and slapped them in last night using the stock 5-way. Need to switch to a 3-way for convenience but the 5-way works with a few non-functional positions. Other than that, works like a charm!

And yes, it's quite fun and sound great. Very fat p90's that do dirt very, very well. Took out a set of DiMarzio Crunch Labs/Liquifires which are also great. Quite a bit higher in output and they have character to them. Not sterile at all.

This S has really become my experimental guitar and I've not found too many pickups that haven't worked. With the P90's I can get a lot of Black Keys tones and cranking the boost puts me well into AC/DC territory and beyond. More midrange but also more clear overall, especially with chords. Good stuff. And cleans are very warm and full as well. The neck pickup is not dark by any means, using with 500K pots. Seemed to work sound wise right out of the box and rolling back on the volume makes them clean right up without a big drop in volume. Nice! Does the edge of breakup stuff well and will push a clean channel profile on my Kemper quite nicely with the volume dimed. The tone pot also has a pretty dramatic effect on them producing crunch.

If you're bored, my advice would be to try it especially if you like P90's.

That's definitely the first ibanez I've seen with P-90s! Pretty cool!
