Personally, I have a thing for Les Pauls with P90 pickups. They work great for leads on certain tracks, and can really beef up a rhythm tone when mixed into a rock track. The guitar features a mahogany body with a maple top, mahogany neck with a rosewood fretboard, 22 frets, trapezoid inlays, pickguard, binding, hard tail bridge, two P90 pickups, two volumes, two tones and a three way switch.

UTILIZATION

This guitar was dead perfect. The frets were amazingly level and had a perfect crown to them. This is vital to achieving low action without fretting out. I was able to get it down to about 1/32'' while still being able to bend a full step on every fret. The ends were done nicely, and they didn't slice up your hand at all. To top it off, the nut was cut properly too. The guitar held tune like a champ. However, this is not the case with all of these guitars. I've played a few that were absolutely horrible, so be sure to check yours before buying it if you can.

SOUNDS

If you've never heard a P90 Les Paul before, you really have to try one out. They're like super thick single coils without as much of the aggressive high end but all of that wonderful vowel-ish quality that so many people love. The bridge worked great for everything from clean to even 80s hair metal. P90s are a lot more versatile than people give them credit for. The neck was just liquid heaven. I was able to get the most awesome lead tone out of this for blues and hard rock. The regular humbuckers just can't really deliver this kind of tone.

OVERALL OPINION

If you're looking for a solid P90 guitar, I highly recommend getting one. These guitars are generally built pretty well, but be sure to check them for different things like neck angle, fret ends, a binding nut and uneven frets. Those will be the biggest QC issues these guitars will have.
