    It's kind of like a powerful Tele on 'roids, with the sustain of a Les Paul plus the shorter scale.

    And the clean tones are incredibly versatile, from deep and bassy to heavy mid cutting and even a little bit twangy on the bridge pickup. They (P90's) in a Les Paul body can do almost anything with a little knob twirling.

    My 339 is Torrified Maple I think. Some of these more modern materials are just fine. Sure, rosewood and ebony are nice but it's not anything I get worked up about

    Once upon a time I considered my PRS CE 24 my most versatile guitar for playing covers with it's useful coil splits, but now I'd say it's my LP with P90's. The versatile clean tones in addition to driving sustain with gain is a pretty awesome thing.

    You really should try one. This lp made a P90 fanboy out of me. They have that humbucker sound, after all humbuckers were made to be a more quite p90. But can go into strat territory where a humbucker dare not travel.

    BIG CONGRATS! She's a beauty and seems like you two bonded right away! Outstanding!

    My 2017 LP Classic describes similar to yours; almost spot on right out of the box, great fretwork, finish, etc. I have humbuckers in mine- but love P90s also!

    Best wishes with it! You've got a lifetime friend there, I reckon!

    P90s are the most versatile pickups, IMO.

    That's a great looking Goldtop! I got a soft spot for Goldtops.

    Check out the tones of the one here, with the mini-humbuckers. Sounds amazing :sneaky:

    Creamier than the mini-buckers... both are great... based on the videos I'd lean toward the mini-buckers, especially since I already have an LP with P90s ('16 LP 60s Tribute).

    Okay I am glad I noticed last night that Musicians Friend dropped the price down another $ 200.00!

    I just called and they are crediting me back the $ 200.00.

    So these came out at $ 1,999.99, dropped to $ 1699.00, then $ 1399.00, and are now blowing them out at $ 1,199.00.

    Comes with brown Gibson Hardshell Case, Strap, Gibson Multi-Tool, and all the other case candy.

    If they are all anywhere as close to perfect like mine, this is a steal for what you are getting. And Musicians Friend dropped the price to that on all three models, the P90 model, the regular Burstbucker Humbucker model, and the Mini Humbucker model.

    @gwjensen here is the mini hummer now at $ 1199.00 - https://www.musiciansfriend.com/gui...pfm=item_page.rrCompare|RecentHistoricalItems

    The devil strikes again :D
