    I just wanted to try a guitar with P-90 pickups, fell in love with the neck and bought the thing. It is my first Gibson as I am a Fender guy. What a nice discovery though. I never tought I would go for a Gibson, but I really dig the sounds of the P-90. At 9.8 pounds it is on the heavy side compared with my tele, or strat, but I love the thing. Have any of you guys tried one???

    there's one in a shop near me - I have avoided it cause I can't scare up the scratch. I am afraid I would fall in love with it and then be all unhappy.

    what's the neck profile like? fat and sassy?

    Very nice! I've only tried a few of the current Gibsons with the 50s neck and unfortunately they are all too fat for me - otherwise I would have either one of these or the LP Special at home now.

    Love it! I recently got a used Epiphone one myself. It's got the '58 neck profile, and I put Duncan Seth Lovers in there. I'll bet yours sounds great!

    Well done.
    I have the '19 Junior.
    Love the P-90
    Really love the 50's neck profile.

    If I were looking for a real Les Paul yours would be my first choice.

    Love my gold top recently purchased, except with humbuckers. Sure I would love the P90's as well.

    Congrats!

    While I'm a staunch Fender guy, I do have a half dozen Gibsons, all P90 loaded.
    So those pickups alone should make the guitar an interesting player.

    A guy I used to play with uses one.....if he'd turn off all his cotton-pickin' pedals I bet it would sound awesome!
    My first good electric, which I got in 1969, is my 1960 double cut Les Paul Jr. One P-90 to rule the world!!!!!!;)

    Congratulations! Nice choice.
    I have had my LP Standard 50s for about a month now, and I am completely blown away by it. The neck is amazing!! I already have a mahogany/maple set-neck guitar with P90s, so I opted for the Burstbucker 1+2 pickups. They sound sweet, as well! Here’s mine:

    Very nice. I kind of want one myself. I had the HB version for a bit. Nice LPs.
