    I’m confused... do Les Pauls come with any other kind of pickups?!? :D

    Seriously, though, it’s how they s’pose to be IMO. I was never an LP fan, but I picked up an Epiphone “Les Paul ‘56 Goldtop” with P90s. (It was black, despite the name.) I can’t for the life of me remember how I convinced myself to get rid of it. Maybe so someday I could justify an LP Junior?

    It's an ES-Les Paul Goldtop VOS. It's like an R4 but it weighs 6 pounds instead of 10. And I love it.

    My 2016 Japan-only market Special. A few made it to Europe and Canada, but in very limited numbers.

    I have four LPs, all with P90s. There is a Special DC, a 2011 Trad, a 2014 TH54, and an the Epi Custom KOA, with SD Phat Cats. All very versatile guitars.
    Oh, there is also a Hallmark C60 (Mosrite clone) that has overwound (13K, 13.4K) Bill Grudget P90 monsters installed.

    Yep (it's my special but the shot is from the place I bought it from, the protective scratchplate covering has gone now )
    The black one is a Gordon Smith but it's kinda Les Paulish

    Just put a down payment on a LP Junior at GC, so we shall see. Will pick it up next week after it's off probation. Will post a review then.

    SG with p90s here, but it's for sale atm. When it goes I'll be buying a TV Yellow Special.

    Totally adore the p90 sound, sadly on this one I can't get used to the 24 fret neck so never play it.

    Or maybe I'll just buy the Special while I'm waiting :D

    I have posted this before, but when I was laid off in ‘04 I had to sell all of my guitars to keep a roof over our heads. I am glad I was able to liquidate the herd for cash but the one guitar I regret selling to this day was my 40th Anniversary Les Paul. This was essentially a black Les Paul Standard with an ebony fretboard, gold hardware and a pair of P100’s.

    P100’s were stacked or noiseless P90’s. There is not a lot of love for P100’s on the internet, but man I dig them.

    My American Deluxe Tele is my favorite electric ever, but if I ever have the spare cash for another electric it will be an LP with P90’s or, if the stars align, P100’s.

    I finally got my new 50s Std the day after Christmas. Great guitar indeed. It fills a sonic hole I had. Great cleans when needed and also has a nice bark on tap.

    I keep eyeing an affordable LP with P90s, but I already have a nice LP, and I have a nice ES-330. If it drops in price one more time, I can't be held responsible for the consequences ;)
