I could not possibly care less about Beato, hardly know who he is, but I like that guitar a lot. Something about the DC LP Specials! However, I have the P90 Gibson more than covered. I do not need or deserve another one. Dang it!
I got one for my son, he picked the colors and we gave it a refin. Plays and sounds great as is, and the only upgrade I did are the tuners. My son started taking lessons two months ago, and his teacher was impressed with how it played.
This happened shortly after we refinished :D:eek::lol...
So one time I did a back-to-back comparison like this:
1. Plugged a guitar in the amp set at fairly loud - strummed and recorded a sample.
2. Removed the pickups, plugged without changing any amp settings - strummed and recorded.
The difference was stunning. :P
