    BACKORDER!!!

    they have the non-vibrola one in stock, but with a laurel board, which I wasn’t thrilled about. This one has a beautiful rosewood board. Isn’t it a pity...:(

    I’m guessing Covid has affected stock. They definitely would’ve had my money!

    So I've read it a ton of time.... GAS, but I still don't know what it stand for...

    Guitar Acquisition Syndrome ?

    I'm sure it's simple, but my french brains can't seem to get to it !

    Really I got it... I felt Acquisition was to big a word... I thought it'd be simpler ... Oh well, after all I guess my French brains aren't so bad... You should see how long it took me to figure out what was HNGD :D

    Resonant String Incident

    Usually takes a lot of glue to fix (apparently)

    I almost bought an Epi LP Tribute with P90s last week. If it came in black I probably would have. Not a bad guitar for the price

    Ooooh, I’ve had a hankering for P90’s lately. What color did you see it in? I just looked at the Epi SG without the vibrios and it is really nice for 450. One thing it was missing was the rings around the pickup covers. Odd place to cut costs.

    With the P90 it only comes in TV Yellow. What i really want to do is a version of Neil Young's Old Black. The Trib comes a P90 already so I'd just need a mini hum for the bridge and a Bigsby. But reality set in. I really need to keep saving some cash. My AC unit is pretty old, its going to die one day. Better have some money ready

    Reality really ruins everything. I hope you get your Neil guitar someday soon, buddy.

    I bought a set of affordable HB-size P90-clones (63 Euro each) to replace the HBs in one of my LP-like (cheap 2nd hand) guitars.
    Love them!
    I initially thought about getting the SD Phat Cats (of which I have one in another guitar -- great sound!) but they are twice the price.

    I love the Toneriders (I think that's what they were).

    Moral of this story..? Sweat it out... get those P90s!


    Ok it a pretty weak story... but still!!

    A friend had one of those SG's with the vibrato back in the day. He could never keep that guitar in tune. I wonder if they ever improved that over the years.
