I have a 2013 Epiphone Firebird. I love it. I am in a Grunge/heavy alternative band. Anyways, I would say the sound is most closely relate-able to Alice In Chains and Soundgarden. That being said, the stock pickups in the Bird are Epiphone stock Alnico classic plus/classic humbuckers. I am looking to keep the neck the same, as I love the glassy tone from it, but I have been debating on getting something different in the bridge. Someone suggested a P90 in the bridge. I want to keep the tone heavy and chunky, but still able to keep a smooth clean sound too. Thanks

Check out RailHammer pickups.

Thanks, Danny. I can not seem to find a bridge pickup video/sound on the P90...Would you happen to know of any? I heard the neck, it sounds great.

The two P90 style RailHammers are the newest in the line, so there's very little out there right now. This is the only demo I know, and it only covers the Gnarly 90:

Hmm...sounds a little like early Bush. Not a bad thing.

If you like the P90 idea, I'd go with the Gnarly 90. The Tel 90 is probably a bit too close to classic P90 tones for what you want.

OTOH, their HyperVintage might also work.

However, that's probably as far as I'd go- the Chisel and the Anvil are probably too high-output for your needs.

Thanks. I am also a fan of Bush. Hmm, the Hypervintage sounds pretty good. It is very chunky. The bass is very pronounced, with the treble still being pronounced at the same time.
