Something not too pricey but still nice. I'd like something more vintage and less blistering hot as the shift seems to be lately.

Anyone have any recommendations or experience with a model that they really enjoy?

I only see 3 on his site, and don't see details of soapbar vs dog-ear type.

Which of his P90's have you tried?

Mean and Meaner's. Just give him a call and let him know what you're looking for, he's a great guy.

I have a specific wind with Wolfe now Twisted Evil

I'll shoot him an email, see what he says.

Anyone else have a suggestion?

BG-Pups winds some great 90's, though he has a 6 - 8 week lead time. Great prices and Bryan does custom winds too. http://www.bg-pups.com/
Some of his 90's were on tour last summer with Fleetwood Mac in a Schroeder Jason made, BG's are Schroeder's OEM pickup http://www.schroederguitars.com/

Deleted to prevent problems. Thanks for clarifying the BG is great and WB sucks Smile

Not familiar with who your thinking of, but I'm sure its not BG, thats not how Bryan rolls. I pretty much use all BG for my 6 string builds and he is doing the winding for my 8 string Tele style prototypes right now.

There's a guy I read about over at TGP that everyone said was taking order but not filling them. I wish I could remember who it was, because I have a bad feeling about BG pickups for some reason.


That's probably WB. Avoid him like the plague.

I'm gonna throw Curtis Novak into the mix. He's in the process of another cross-country move, but don't count him out.

Another family member into winding is sonicblue.

I haven't talked to him but from what I pick up (get it, pickup? I kill me! Laughing ) on FB it's somewhere in SoCal.

uh, San Bernardino, away from traffic rush hour, hustle bustle, Kadashians, Lohans, ...

But that SoCal location gets, hot and dry. I guess he miss the desert[?] Laughing

I know he liked the Bay Area and Central Coast : Monterey, Half-Moon Bay ...

Well good for him. Very Happy

What about the Gibson P90 that they sell? Is it any good? Vince, I'm looking in your direction...

Everyone thinks there has got to be something better... Gibson is the standard... just like PAFs. They still make reasonably priced clones of those pickups. Gibson P90s are as good as anything else out there... and cheaper. Every Joe out there is a boutique winder... I don't buy it....

I did splurge and get a set of Novak P90's but they are not dogears. I haven't even tried them yet and I have had them for a couple of years. All this for the simple fact that what came in my cheap P90'd guitars sound great! I think it is kind of hard to screw up a P90 unless you have loose windings or didn't wind enough wire or too much. A good P90 should be in the 8k ohm range...
