    Just bought an Eddie Cochran, couldn't pass the deal up. I'm wondering if anybody has pulled the DS pup in the bridge and dropped in a TVJ T-90?

    Thinking of creating a P/T-90 Gretsch. Thanks.

    I had an Epiphone Sorrento that came with mini-humbuckers which I replaced with hot P90s. Blissful tones.

    I too had an EC, and as usual the Dynasonic was a bit tame. A T-Armond will spice things up, and isn't too different tone wise from a P90. Plus it would still look right. The Lindy Fralin P90 that's standard in the EC isn't especially rude, and could do with being a bit closer to the strings, but it's not an LP Special after all.

    If going down the TVJ road, check with Tom as the polarity on a TA is the other way round from a Dyna (I think!).

    Wouldn't that just be an early ES-350T?
