Well, it appears that starting over again helped me to see what I'm typing. I've read many positive comments about the Retrotrons in general, but in my mind I still associate them with SHBs & HBs, not SBs.

I used these in a Agile Cool Cat flame orange beast with Bigsby to try and grab a Setzer thing. If I had kept the guitar I'd probably have swapped them out for some TV Jones. They didn't sound bad, just very ordinary. Honestly, I think the stock Agile hums had more character. <br /> <br /> Can't say what they'd sound like in a solid body.

I put a Retrotron (Memphis, I think) in the bridge of a Squier '51, which is a solidbody, although *maybe* not alder ;^)<br /> Sounds good to me.<br /> <br /> Reverend puts their Revtrons in a couple solidbodies.

Reverend has used the GFS Mean 90 (sort of a copy of the Duncan Phat Cat) in a few of their guitars.
