    It took 28 days to make the trip from Bavaria, but I just got it in the mail today.

    When I took it out of the box, it was actually IN TUNE! I couldn't believe it.

    So I gave it a quick setup, and plugged it in, and WOW. I have never had a P90 guitar, but I now get what the fuss is about.

    First impressions are good. No fit and finish issues, the setup was actually pretty decent right out of the box, and I was impressed with the fret work; No high frets, no buzzing, no fret sprout, and the fret ends are nicely rounded.

    The neck joint has great upper fret access, and feels very solid.

    All in all, I'm pretty impressed with the quality.

    HNGD brother! Looks great. I gotta say after putting the bass response pot in my P90 strat I almost don't want to sell it now. They do have something special to them for sure.

    Nice! That P90 is ready to destroy a Fender amp!

    My P90 Gibson has pretty much cancelled out my single coil Fenders. Pretty versatile pickups

    Got to love a P90 guitar.
    One of the most versatile pickups out there.
    I too, would enjoy a sound clip.
    I'm curious how those Roswell pickups sound.
    I have P90s in 3 guitars, an '04 Gibson LP Special, '12 Epiphone Wildkat and a '19 Gibson LP Jr DC.
    Of those, I prefer the LPJRDCs' P90 the most.
    Lot of sounds in a P90...
    Classic look you got there.
    I'm sure you will,
    Enjoy your new guitar

    It's hard to describe. It feels a bit like an American Standard Strat neck; like a modern C, but it is a bit wider.

    I may have to go and spend my lunch money. HNGD. It sounds like they are worth taking a chance on.
