zionstrat Posted July 17, 2005 Report Share Posted July 17, 2005 If you read following summary, I think I want to build something I have never seen before- A Mahogeny body/Maple neck to get a rather specific feel and sound- Can you give me your ideas as to what this gtr would sound like? Goals: Build a rather unusual P90 gtr to get sounds and feel I am after- I want a hum free sound that has more bite than my humbucker gtrs and is thicker than my strats. I want to get much of the mahogany tone that I got off my old p90 SG. But I also want flexibility for a number of pup combinations. And unlike most P90 options I want the feel of a 25.5, wide, thick maple fboard, with med low action and .10 strings. Other than a more traditional 3+3 headstock, this is how I expect it to look: Summary: -L5 mahogany flat top body for classic sound, mass, lots of room for electronics -25.5 Mahogany neck with maple fingerboard- Wide, thin profile -hard tailpiece -locking tuners. -Two 5 way switches control to p90 and once dual rail sc for following combinations: P90 Switch 1. Bridge 2. Bridge+neck parallel 3. Bridge + neck series 4. Bridge + neck series out of phase 5. Neck SC-Twin blade's 5way switch 1. single coil that is hum complimentary to bridge P90 2. Off 3. Full SC rail with spin a split 4. P90s off, full SC rail with spin a split 5. Single coil that is hum complimentary to neck P90 Right now I'm considering set of Fralins, SD Vintage soapbars or stacks for the p90s and either a cool rail or a Dmz cruiser for the middle. Master vol, tone, and dual rail spin a split- But I'm open to input- So would you think I've got a good starting point for the sounds I am after? Or am I missing something altogether? After all if this had exactly the sound I'm looking for you would expect that someone offered it on a regular basis- Very interested in your input- Thanks!
