I finally ended my P-90 search on Friday. Picked this up from GC used for $ 450.00 out the door. Not a great deal, but fair. Played it unplugged for 20 minutes before I even bothered with an amp. You guys know the feeling when you hit an " A " chord and the entire guitar vibrates from the neck to the strap button? This one does this even better than my ash '52 Hot Rod. Fit and finish on this guitar were better than the two Gibson's I tried out ( both LP's with P-90's ). Better fit and finish than my SG standard. Not a finish flaw on it, straight neck and even intonated correctly by the previous owner. Pretty sad when a guitar that sells for 1/2 of a Gibson entry level has better fit and finish ( I am not going to get into hardware,wiring, etc ). The pickups, IMHO, are perfect. Just the right combination of clean with a fatter bottom end than a Tele single coil. The neck is fat ( just about the same as my SG standard ) and really helps with hand fatigue ( I have been holding power tools for 20 years and this is pretty important for me ). The only work I did on it was a string change and lowered the action a bit for my tastes. Weighs in at a very managable 7.5 pounds. Worth every penny I paid for it. My only regret is that I did not have a SG Classic to try out. Oh well, there is always Christmas. This LP has the " Slim Whitman " ( cat in the pic ) seal of approval. ( I had more pictures, but apparantly my memory card may be on it's last leg ).
