Semis with P-90s and humbuckers – a comparison

I thought you guys and girls might be interested in a real-world, no-nonsense sound comparison between the P-90 pickup and the humbucker using gear a mere mortal can afford.

I’m using my Japanese Kasuga 335-copy from the late 70s/early 80s, which has very nice moderate level humbuckers, and my Korean Epiphone Casino (c. 2002) which Sebastian equipped with Göldo P-90s.

The guitars were recorded using a Roland Micro-Cube straight via the Digidesign M-Box 2 into Garageband.

All clips have the Casino going first panned slightly left and the Kasuga second placed slightly to the right.

Here are the neck pickups: Front Master

Next up both guitars with the selector switch in the middle position: Both Master

This is what the bridge pickups sound like: Bridge Master

And finally the rhythm guitars in the middle position with bluesy solos on top; first the Casino, then the Kasuga, both with their bridge pickups engaged: Both plus Solo Master

By the way (thanks Hannu):

Have you seen this video featuring two rather talented young guitarists, who play very similar looking guitars?
