I’ll look into that, for sure. Thanks for the suggestion!

I’ve been eyeing this as a possible (albeit pricey) fix to the P-90 buzz issue. The Strat and Tele are usually tolerable, but the P90s are a different animal.
I have a strat with 3 p90s that I had Ilitch make me a backplate for. It's brilliant. I love p90 tone but hate the noise and hum. The Ilitch system works really well and I noticed no change in the tonal quality of the pickups. Pricey but worth it.

@Alex is that just a regular well-loved '52 avri/RI or a CS?
Hey Justin, it's a Greg Fessler Masterbuilt MVP (Maken Music). Has a S1 push/push parallel/series switch on the tone knob that essentially does a quasi humbucker when activated. 5.2lbs!! the body wood is Paulownia. very resonant and loud acoustically.

Isn’t the expression, “Are you rockin’ or are you just worried about your hair?” Haircuts as a measure of value in a R’n’R world kind of amuses me.
hehe, well it really depends on how much pomposity you believe belongs in R&R. It's probably the genius idea of some advertising agent...after frequent trips to Vietnam and Thailand, a few ladyboys later, and there we have our whole proto-glam and hard rock aesthetic/vanity laid out. They just didn't want to miss out on that "nambla" demographic. "I don't know, they're just so....sexy!" : Led Zeppelin
