Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

I am hunting for a p 90... what is the best one out there?  
Fralins, Wolfe Tone... or will an cheepo Armstrong do it?  
I don't want a dark one... my amp is very warm and dark...

Hi: we're not supposed to be selling our pickups on the forum here, the forum is to discuss pickup making only. Over on the right there are links to some of the pickup makers, you can talk to them individually off the forum if you like. Having said that, you will probably get a better sounding P90 from a custom pickup maker than you will from the big guys who just crank them out by the hundreds.  
 
 
 
Greg, cut it out!!!

Hey Dave, sorry. I posted this one before I saw your post in the other thread. And like I said there...no more. People can go listen to your pickup samples on your site and they will sell themselves. Sorry again...

I sure think the Carvin AP6 was a fine sounding pickup. There's zero demand for them now, though.
