    I'd do the EC thing - Dyna in the bridge, P90 in the neck. Great looker though.

    TVJ T-90s sound great in a chambered solidbody! No reason why P-90s shouldn't sound great as well.

    I'm sure it sounds amazing. P90s are terrific.

    I love Jets. I love P90ies. I love sparkle. But this is meh to me. Sorry. No deal. I personally do not like mash-ups.

    With that ugly tailpiece I wouldn't even have noticed the P90s...

    I have been intrigued by the idea of a DC Jet with Dynas for forever and a day,

    However, the guitar in the OP does very little for me. I think the orange sparkle is kinda ghastly, the black pickup covers make it look a little too Halloweeny. But, if you look at the back view, the switch and master volume knob covers... The one for the switch looks like it is right at the edge of the body. They definitely aren't symmetrical in any way. That would kinda bug me for what this guitar probably costed.

    Anyway... Hey Gretsch, I know it ain't historically accurate, but what about some DC Jets with single coils?
