    I bought a Epiphone "Les Paul Special" for $128 shipped from Musicians Friend a while back.

    I can't recall what wood it is made from, but it has a bolt on neck with a rosewood fretboard and P90 pickups. The pickups actually sound really good. The tuners are trash and I had to replace the input jack. Otherwise, it's a great guitar for the money. I used this guitar to learn how to level, crown and polish frets. (The frets are really good from the factory; I just wanted to learn the process.)

    Yeah! Nice little Pelham Blue ES-339 P90 Pro that I picked up during Black Friday. Fretboard and strings were dirty as hell, but I cleaned that up and everything else is near perfect fit/finish wise...I really was blown away. The switch feels a little cheap, but other than that I was real happy. Sounds amazing (my first guitar with P90s!)

    @drmordo , that’s what credit is for. :)

    Seriously, they have a 10 payment plan. Limited edition. If you can swing it, they may not do another. Poor uptake on this run. Just FYI. V’s and Explorers sold well, Modernes, not so much.

    Nice try, Big Brother.
    I've had several come and go in my collection. Right now I have a 2008 Wilshire reissue that I think is going to stick around. I rewired it with all CTS/Switchcraft/Sprague and I put a Bigsby B5 with all of the Callaham upgrades on it. I like it a lot. I might upgrade the humbuckers to Railhammers at some point. Or I may not.

    I have a Special P90 that I bought used off of craigslist for $70. It is a surprisingly fun guitar. I had a G400 for a while but I couldn’t dial it in to save my life, and I’m not half bad at dialing. Once I found a replacement Mueller bridge for my ‘74 S100, I never looked back.

    I bought one of those and turned it into a slide guitar. It did have one high fret that I’m not going to worry about.

    I’ve got a couple of Korean Epiphones.

    I have a Korean built Dot (2002). Easily the best player I own for the money. It has been my designated "beater" guitar for nearly 20 years so it probably has more miles on it than any of my other more expensive instruments. Love it.

    I have an AJ-100ce acoustic electric. Nice looking, playing and sounding acoustic for the $$ but literally has the crappiest sounding pup known to man. I guess what can you expect for $200?

    Had a very nice Sheraton, but it was a heavy thing, so I sold it.

    Back story: My friend Gordie committed suicide back in the mid 1990s. It never made any sense to me , because he was one of the nicest guys that I ever met. He also was a very talented guitar player.

    Gordie’s wife gave this Epiphone to a mutual friend, John, who is also a guitar player. John contacted my wife and asked her if she thought that I would want Gordie’s guitar. She didn’t hesitate, and she gave John his asking price: 50.00

    She gifted the guitar to me for Christmas that year. This guitar was Gordie’s beater, and I remember him playing it at many music festival jams of which I was a participant.

    It’s a 1965 Cortez.

    Yeah, let's see, I got:
    Black mid '90s Sheraton (Lottie)
    Late '90s LP '56 Goldtop (Goldy)
    Sunburst early teens 339 Pro ('39)
    Wine Red '18 339 P-90 (Dub Yar)
    Unknown year Cherry LP Jr. HB (Paulette)
    Valve Jr amp.
    I think that's it.
