    What are those pickups? They look like P94s in a soapbar style cover?

    TV Jones T-90s. They are GREAT in this guitar (I did not like them in my Hot Rod). They are loud. They are like a P90 with Filtertron clarity... or perhaps you could say like single coil, fatter, midd-ier, filtertrons lol

    I use 250K pots to bring them closer to the Gibson P90 sound. and turning down the vol pot a notch helps, these suckers are LOUD. They are one of the best pickups SETS I've ever played... perfect balanced (bridge is thicker with balls, neck is warm but has CLARITY lacking in many woofy neck pickups).

    So impressed I am now waiting on a set a T-Armonds to try in this guitar. Not because I don't like the T-90s anymore, just because I've always wanted to try T-Armonds... rod magnets! (if the T-90s are a cross between a P90 and Filter, the T-A's have been described as a cross between tele pickups and P90s)
