    on sale now at MF. $379, free shipping. Great reviews. Is there any down side to owning this guitar? The Pelham blue is gorgeous.

    I own a red one and a sunburst.

    Only two downsides that I have found...

    The P90s are not RWRP for hum cancelation in the middle pickup position.

    The stock tuners are OK, but not great.

    On my sunburst, I had my preferred tech rewire the pickups for hum cancelation, and replaced the tuners with standard Grovers too.

    My red one is still stock.

    I love that Pelham Blue finish. If I didn't already have two I'd probably buy one.

    I love the Epiphone P90 PRO pickups. They actually sound closer to vintage Gibson P90s than the new Gibson P90s do.

    The Probuckers are good too, but the P90 PRO pickups are awesome.

    Have Blue. Recommend. Bigly. It's a lotta beaver for one little dam.

    I would compare it to a Casino Coupe since it is fully hollow and the 339 is semi. There is also someone on Reverb that will rewind the pickups for you it you want.
