    I'v been reading here for quite a while when i was looking for some inspiration on what to do with my Affinity Jazzmaster.
    I think it went pretty well...

    Tuning Keys are actually really cheap Locking Tuners i've ordered via Amazon from China.
    Decent Quality though, seem to be pretty stable, same goes for the Bridge.
    Got rid of the Toggle Switch and Tone Control, PU is a Seymour Duncan Phat Cat P90.
    Pickguard is Custommade by a Viennese Luthier.

    Any Feedback on this?

    VERY unique Jazzy! I bet that SD P90 sounds awesome!

    It does. Totally can recommend. Bought another one who might find its way into my Bullet Mustang. :D

    I would explore placing a second P90 at the neck. You would have a much more versatile instrument.

    It’s like a jazzmaster Les Paul JR. Classy and simple. I probably would have used a 3 ply b/w/b pickguard, but otherwise you nailed it. Now, make a video of let’n it rip!

    Ah, but that wouldn't lead to understanding the versatility of a single-pickup instrument. You have to work at it. With a good amp that's set right, control over picking dynamics, and volume/tone knob twisting, a Les Paul Junior, SG Junior, or Esquire can produce a broad range of tone.

    Looks like this one is an inexpensive, basic, blaster. I like the look of it.

    The ever-over-the-top, yet fun Phil X prefers a single P-90. Here, he demonstrates how you get everything out of a single P-90 guitar:

    Though i know that a SinglePU Guitar CAN be quite versatily, that's not what i intended to do :) I kinda was lookin at what kind of sound i want/need for the style i play (Melodic Hardcore).
    Since i run it into some pedals (basically Digitech Bad Monkey and EHX Canyon) and on to my Orange Dual Terror this sounds really nice.
    I kinda have 2 sounds, based on what the song needs. Sound 1 is a slightly crunchy (Gain is set pretty low on my OD) with some Shimmer Reverb from the Canyon. Sound 2 is pure Mid-Gain-y, Orange Awesomeness. :cool:

    Interesting point you make regarding sticking with the P90 because of the pedals you're using because with my guitars I think the pedals I'm using sound better with single coils. Lower output than a humbucker and definitely more definition in the lows and low mids. I think it's a cleaner signal into the effects, allowing better tone and tonal colors with each effect right where you want it and the amp can reproduce it better.
