P-90 Growl in a Lovable Les Paul Body
Fitting into my guitar tonescape between two classics, the Telecaster and humbucker equipped Les Paul, the easy to play and lovably sized LP Special with P-90s is simply a joy. It produces wonderful sounds, beautifully clean to gnarly, screaming overdrive, the P-90 does it all.
Tougher Guitar - not for everyone, but cool for those chosen ones.
Narrow neck, heavyish, unforgiving. BUT sounds really nice - vintagey. Slight issues with holding in tune. I have 1996 issue from Nashville plant. Currently considering custom pick-ups to replace the P-90s to squeeze more rock out of this jazzish instrument. Hopefully it will work out, will advise.
use it on a number of songs. mine is in vintage sunburst. the bridge pickup has been replaced with a Seymour Duncan Antiquity Firebird Bridge Pickup and I added a Bigsby b7 and a Harmonica bridge. all around great guitar and I do recommend it.
