16. Simply put your control knobs and switch tip back on the guitar, restring it, and wail!...
"To illustrate this Q&A request, we chose to fit Jason Lollar Standard Dog Ear Style P-90s for Casino (£140 for the pair) to a Korean-made Epiphone Casino.
"Why Lollars? Like many pickup choices, it was word-of-mouth recommendation, in this case from members of the Guitarist team who have used Lollars in Teles, SGs and Collings guitars.
"Compared with the standard-issue pickups, they’re more dynamic and just better all over. There was something hard-edged and unresponsive about the guitar before, which meant using the bridge required a dive for the tone pot to reduce the treble.
"With these, the neck sounds classic, open and throaty when driving the amp, the treble seems only slightly louder on single notes - the perfect balance - and usable all the way through the volume and tonal range.
"Blending the two together (and bucking the P-90 hum) opens up an array of different but still rounded, instantly pleasing tones. From reined jazziness to rough-arsed Chuck Berry, to soaring BB, and even for lighter rock, it’s all in there - head and shoulders better."
