    Dangerous things happen when you’re killing time in a Guitar Center during a business trip. Low and behold, a new 2018 Gibson Les Paul Junior Tribute for $500.00! I didn’t “need” another guitar but I rationalized this one as I could use a P-90 guitar in my arsenal, and the price was right....

    Looks awesome, is that a thin skin finish?

    Very cool. I have always been able to rationalize P90 guitars ;).

    Nice. I would have snagged it too. I love finding a cool guitar when I'm not looking for one.

    Yes, it’s actually black stain. You can feel the grain of the wood through the finish.

    Good start for a P90 addiction.

    It'll come ...

    Cherry red owner. Mine was set up fine from Gibson factory. I have the side jack model. Great sounding P-90 and fret ends feel fine.

    Congrats! I bought a Worn Brown one last spring and really like it. Mine is a little different than yours - it has the output jack mounted on the pickguard but I prefer the layout of yours.

    Very nice, I got one for $599 from MF this spring. The only thing wrong with it was the rosewood fingerboard was as dry as the Sahara, The pic you provided also shows a very dry fingerboard, get it conditioned, or risk "fret sprout", if it doesn't have it already. Mine did get fret sprout, and I had to file, and dress the fret ends. Still a great guitar for the money! The amount of different tones you can get with the single P-90 is amazing! Congrats...

    You had to buy that at that price, need it or not! And, if you ask me, everyone needs at least one guitar with a Gibson P90! They are my personal favorite pickups.
    If I’d been there 5 minutes before you, it would already be gone :p
    HNGD!
