    Yes. I love mid-sized Gibson hollows/semi hollows.

    Unless the skinny neck offends you....... Yes! Smaller and less expensive than a 335, lighter and less middy than a Les Paul. Bargain!

    I wonder why the P90 model doesn't have a traditional Gibson headstock.

    Damn! When I posted this last week there were six sunburst Midtowns in stock at AMS. Now they are all sold out.

    Are these the models with the flat (non-arched) top? They're made like Tele thinlines, I think. Plus use Richlite for the fretboard.

    Too bad I didn't see this last week. I have a Midtown Standard with humbuckers and a Bigsby and it's a fantastic guitar. One of my favorites.

    It's definitely a thinline-style solid body electric with acoustic chambers routed out and a solid maple top, not a laminate ES-style semi hollow construction.

    I tried one at Sam Ash last year. I thought it was a great guitar, especially for the price. They were sold out soon after that.
