I think a lot of what you're hearing is just the strings themselves. A big semi hollow body guitar is going to let the strings resonate more... just like an acoustic, but not quite. It sounded like the typical humbucker sound to me when he changed to his distortion channel.

As far as what the pickups are, no clue.

Edit: Hmmm, did some researching and found this little quote on Wiki: "In addition to the change from the original black plastic dual-coil Humbucker pick-ups this guitar was altered when it became the EA-250 Riviera and the guitar was re-introduced with single coil pick-ups covered with the standard two coil Humbucker pick-up covers which adds a unique element to the guitar model."

Except P90s aren't hum-cancelling. The best bet is to get some 4 conductor (wire) humbuckers and have someone install a coil splitting circuit.

No, that's far from the best bet. In fact, it's not even close.


I have an old original 1949 ES-175 that came with a single P90 in the neck position.

If you want a noiseless P90, there are several available. Perhaps the best one (the one that sounds most like my vintage original P90, that is) is the Kinman noiseless P90.

Is that mean EA-250 has two single-coil pickups in humbucker cases?

Yep, that's exactly what they're saying

Sooooooo...get some HB-sized P90s. They're the right size, and will deliver singlecoil tones.

You might take a look at some TV Jones filter trons. Humbuckers with a unique tone.

Well, it looks like a real humbucker with adjustable pole-piece on the down side, and it is more closer to Fender's chimey tone, not the P90 one... Any ideas for suggestion please?

I'd look at the RailHammer H90s (the Tel90) and Bareknuckle HBS-P90s (Manhattan, Blue Note, or Mississippi Queen) first.

That said, the TV Jones are an excellent suggestion.
