    a good gibson out of the box is 100% better than a good new fender out of the box. set ups are horrendous on new fenders.

    Sources tell me the current 2013 Gibsons are incredible, only the reissues of course. I love Gibson. Pio, don't get a solid state amp. They are for plebs.

    if youre on a budget, those arent too shabby at all. However, i forget that Piob probably isnt on a budget. in that case...

    Fender amps are only good with single coils, imo. 6L6 and 6V6 tubes pushed sound muddy with humbuckers. Essentially fender amps are made for Fender guitars.

    I am on a budget. I have 10k worth of bagpipes I've not played much in a few years.

    P-90's is a different story. I still find 6L6's to not sound great dirty. EL-34's all of the way. KT66 is a good midpoint.

    Also, the best humbuckers sound very much like p-90's due to the mismatched coils.

    If you semi-pros/long time hobbyists can't even decide on a pickup how's a noob to pick a single guitar he'll be satisfied with?

    Also, those Vox have a tube power circuit.
