    They are fantastic pickups, pretty much beefier single coils, they cut through really well, and dont have the weak tone some single coils have. Versatile too. Because the ASS comes with a 3 way switch for the MM90's you dont get the classic out of phase strat sounds, like on an Albert Lee with MM90's, but they sound great just the same.

    Get it!

    Its in good condition, a few dings but nothing to bad. The only other thing is that it is in need of one screw that holds the string in. (on the back of the headstock)
    i.e. see my other post.
    Any help where I could find one?

    i have M90s in my AL and i play a lot of heavy stuff, they sound great in high gain situations....i think.

    i play it through a 5150 combo and i get some really nice crunch with the m90s

    you will enjoy them, i'm sure!!!

    the AL isnt a good example people, as the MM90s sound completely different in the ASS, partly due to the AL 5 way switch. Even the neck pickup sounds very different in the 2 guitars.

    You can see a slightly older version of my pedalboard on the guitar link in my signature. Pretty much all the tone is Tech 21 stuff, including the Power Engine amp.
