    I never realized that I have several single pickup guitars. All simple and fun players, for sure, but I just look at them as "guitars". In Rhett Shull's video, he's talking more presence, higher sustain, magnetic field vs fields interfering with each other............who bleepin' knew? If you're packing a single pickup guitar, post it up and tell us what you think.

    Plywood body, 1.25" thick, custom leather pickguard and headstock, P-90 pup. A build of mine. I have zero experience with other guitars, but IMHO, this thing kicks some serious arse.

    Only one guitar, but I do have a few one-pup Basses.

    The Supro White Holiday looks like it only has one pup, but it also has a piezo in the bridge...

    I only have one I think. It’s also my only First Act. Extremely fun guitar. I don’t know if it has to do with only having one pickup, but it sounds awesome.

    Guinness Book just called, they're keeping the count. That reminds me, I think I'll have another Guinness.

    Hahahahahaha...
    that’s exactly what popped into my head when I read this thread...

    The second thought was:

    I’d have to check all my cases to be sure. :D
