• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

I have been a huge Mike Ness and Social Distortion fan for many years! I have seen them live about a dozen times. I have seen a bunch of pictures of Mike on the SD website with a P90 Les Paul (I think he is also holding one on the Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell album also). However, I have always seen him use humbucker Les Pauls live. They looked to be modern Les Paul Standards.

Yeah, LPs w/P90s. From what I've heard from folks who know him he plays 70s Deluxes w/P-90s instead of mini HBs. So, a Pro is basically the same thing with an ebony fretboard instead of rosewood.

TD-SV, got your email the other night.......deleted it by accident. Didn't see this post till tonight. Sorry!! Shoot me another one, I know his gear setup inside and out (I have a couple Bassmans setup by his amp tech Billy Zoom set up to his specs.....who's also an amazing player!!).

He switched to P90 LPs on the "Somewhere" album and tour. He still used HBs live for a few tunes on the tour (I have a couple bootlegs vids from that tour). Since then he's been using P-90 LPs (and I've seen them more than a few times myself). He also used a Gretsch on the self titled album in the studio for quite a few tunes as well.

Hey SickBoy, Who did Billy Zoom play with? I thought it was "X", but that was John Doe.

They're both in X.

Billy Zoom is the guitar player, and John Doe the bass player.

I have to listen to that live disk again.

Sounds great! - Nice amp, good tea.
I love those leads - Bowkanga - Bowkanga - Bowkanga.

I know I heard a splash cymbal in Bad Luck though.
You've got to lose that thing - they are so wrong.
Hit some big ass cymbals to go with those bad boy guitars.

And check yer fickin email !
