  • Need early 50's P-90 sound for my "Cochran"

    Hello everybody, I play on a GRETSCH 6120W-57 (Eddie Cochran model with 1 Dynasonic pickup (bridge) and 1 P-90 by Lindy Frallin' (neck)). I'd like to upgrade the sound to try to find a sound as Eddie Cochran could have in the 50's, so I'd like to find the best P-90 reproduction.
    - What is you opinion about it, to find a P-90 with the 50's characteristic (magnet, output...) and reproduce the best early 50's P-90 sound. Must I choose the P-90 "dog ear" Antiquity? or the custom shop "dog ear" stack?
    Sorry for my bad English and thank you for your help... Herve (FRANCE).

    Welcome to the forum. The Duncan Antiquity P90 would be the best choice for a classic P90 tone.

      I think I'd look for some of the old Filtertrons or maybe the TV Jones pickups. Those would probably be closest to what Eddie had in his 6120.
