    We all do silly things sometimes. Sorry man just keep an eye out, or try contact whomever you sold it to, see if they are still happy with it, you never know.

    NP can't wait to see it!!! Yah the AL in my opinion is a must have. I love both the Silo Specials and the AL's, though I'd recommend the MM90's if you can score one, my favorite pickups by far.

    Glenn,
    I asked in the AL Picture thread for a comparison between the Silo and AL neck profiles, but haven’t had any feed back yet. I played a couple of ALs at a GC many years ago, but just cannot recall much except they were bigger than the Luke that I tried at the same time. I also recall the sales dude remarked how small the AL looked on my 6'4” profile LOL. Can you shed any light on the neck profile as compared to the Silo?

    As far as the MM90 AL, I have a love hate relationship with P90 pickups. I have had several P90 equipped guitars, currently have a PRS soap bar and a Hamer Newport that has Phat Cat Pickups (P90 in a Humbucker size). I dig the Newport, but it has a lot going on as a hollow body carved from a block of mahogany with a spruce top and a Bigsby in a groovy orange sparkle finish. It is a keeper. The PRS will eventually go bye bye. I would definitely have to put an MM90 AL through its paces before I committed to buy one, but I’d be very comfortable buying an SSS model sight unseen...
    Thank you,
    Brion

    Hey Brion, I'd love too give you a comparison, but to me there isn't much difference, I'm a pretty bad (can barely play) player. I wish I could be of more help, I'm sure there are others here who might be able to help you out.

    I hear you on the P90's (MM90's) you either love them or hate them from what I hear, I myself love em, but that's me. The SSS model is the model that AL himself seems to play the most, so it's gotta be good.

    Good luck, Glenn |B)

    Thank you Glenn. I’m thinking that the neck profile is similar as Al did play a silhouette before the AL model was conceived. I just sold an amp so I’m closer to grabbing an AL. Once the amp makes it to its new home I’ll pursue an AL, I have my eye on one.
