Glenn Hutchinson Posted June 5, 2010 Report Share Posted June 5, 2010 I've built a guitar and I need some advice on which pickups I should be looking at. Here's my problem.. For the body I used a very old piece of mahogany that I found in my dads shed. This was the hardest lump of wood I have ever tried to work on. The neck is a one piece sapele mahogany with ebony fingerboard and headplate I made the nut from an old piece of bone I found frets are gold evo medium size (these are harder than nickel frets) 24 fret fingerboard with the neck glued to the body and string through method Pickups are seymour Duncan Phat Cat P-90's The whole guitar has been finished with Tru-Oil current strings on it are 11's The guitar sounds great but it doesn't sound how I would like it to. It's a very heavy guitar but it sounds a little too bright for my liking. I'm thinking maybe the P-90 isn't the way to go so I need to know which humbuckers are the best on the market for getting that rich warm bluesy tone. I'm not looking for cheap pickups I'm looking for the best pickups so if you have any thoughts on this I'd be glad of some help on this. Thanks guys Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
