1 echoplex 1 year ago Thought for sure a Jet would be the ideal companion to my Phoenix, but I just couldn’t come to terms with the slim neck, and if I was honest, there was just a little bit of ‘heft’ I was missing in the sound. There were things that I liked and things that I disliked about the LP I played back in the 90s, but with the Jet not doing it for me I decided to give an LP a shot again. I knew a 50’s neck profile would feel good, and took a chance on P90s (one of the things I didn’t like about my 90s LP was the PAFs were just a little too muddy…). First order of business was a Bigsby- I’ve become so accustomed to having one I almost feel like I can’t play an electric guitar without one now (went with a Towner V-block system- great solution to put the much better feeling B3 on an LP)- and a Compton (intonation with a wound G is spot-on). I kinda liked the bridge P90, but the neck…. ugh. Having been through the TV Jones lineup in getting my Phoenix the way I wanted it I decided to start with a Powertron/Powertron+ combo in the LP- jackpot on the first try. Boy this thing sounds great in all p/u selector positions and pretty much all levels of gain through my AC30 from clean to maxed-out. The heft of a PAF LP with the clarity of a Jet. My heart still belongs to the Phoenix, but I expect I’ll be playing this thing nearly half the time now…..
