I've been eyeing an Ibanez SHB (Artcore of some variety) down at the local mom and pop. It's down to $300 and plays absolutely beautifully.
Of course, the p90's in it are horrible, and I'm wondering about others' thoughts on replacing p90's.
I could put in HB's (same store has Burstbuckers on sale for 75/apiece), or another set ... I once replaced pups in a semi hollow and just snipped the leads and did a "poor man's patch." It worked great.
Alternatively, there is a Gretsch 5422 there I love, but they are asking $675, and ... meh. That's not the price point I want to pay.
