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???
