  1. How about tone? Anyone with specific P90 experience on a H535, other than SD Phat Cats?
  2. Thank you all for the advice... and warnings. Food for thought
  3. So it’s not just a matter of disconnecting the old ones then connecting and dropping in the new ones?
  4. Did you do it yourself and how easy was it?
  5. Has anyone here got experience in replacing humbuckers with P90s on a H535? I am so very impressed with my H530 and its dogear Lollars that I am considering mounting P90s on my H535. They clearly would have to be humbucker size, maybe lollars or fralin. Not sure how easy the replacement, fitting and finetuning procedure may be... All advice welcome.
  6. Very happy with my SS DV Mark Jazz, then again I do love my Matchless Lightning... Horses for course.
  7. On both my 535 and my 530, D’Addario Chrome Flatwounds 11-50 - ECG24 Jazz Light Gauge.
  8. Two weeks ago I scored a new old stock DV Mark Jazz 212. I'm usually partial to valve amps but I thought I'd experiment with this solid state unit. The main reason I got it, other than the reasonable price, is it's much lighter to carry around than my much loved Matchless Lightning Reverb 112. Anyway, after some time fiddling with the amp settings and my various pedals, I found a good and simple combination for a variety of sounds, from clean jazz to gritty blues to overdriven rock. I just use my (valve) Tonebone Radial Trimode in front of the DV, which gives me three channels - one is the true bypass the other two are overdriven and equalised to different extents. Amp settings : reverb at 2 o'clock, Bass at 2, Mid at 4 and High at 5. Works a treat with my H530 on all pickup combos. I've now got to find the right settings for my other guitars.. work for another day.
  9. The main difference is indeed a longer scale but not necessarily more frets. And generally heavier strings. My D6 has a 710mm scale and 24 frets. https://duesenberg.de/en/guitars/d6-baritone
  10. She's a beauty. Hours, days, weeks, months, years of joy coming your way.
  11. Thanks for that. In terms of Aussie-made guitars I'm more familiar with the likes of Maton and Cole Clarke. Those Little Crow sure are different-looking guitars.
  12. Well picked up! It's a Duesenberg D6 Baritone. I've tuned it B to B (five frets down from standard guitar E tuning) and strung it with D'Addario Nickel Wound Baritone Lights (?) 13-62. It contributes a different sound with chords, riffs or lead when there are already one or two other guitars playing. As long as the other guitar players don't look at your fingers on the fretboard it's all good 🧐 A vast array of tones in the pickup combos and option to split the humbuckers. And with the constant thinking required for transposing, it will keep the brain ticking for a while yet.
  13. Thanks for the compliment. I haven’t followed Shane much so I’m not sure which aussie amp builders, still active, you are referring to.
  14. ...and it is a great addition to the family 😂
  15. Picked up this beauty online two weeks ago. Had to be shipped coast to coast from Western Australia to the East Coast. Absolutely love the tones I get from it into my Matchless Lightning reverb 112, whether clean or overdriven.
