  • NGD! Les Paul with P90s Edition

    After eyeing it for a few days and convincing myself that I needed it (easy to do I know), I finally pulled the trigger on one of my dream guitars: a goldtop with P90s.

     

    A 2011 Gibson LP Traditional Pro with coil tapped P90's, has a nice fat neck (very much like the 50's shape on my standard), nice weight at 9.25lbs, and just a great tone.

    God, I love the look of that thing. Congratulations! I am looking forward to a review once you've settled in with it.

    That is one seriously gorgeous, wonderfully classy axe.  HNGD!

    I have a question, though: "coil-tapped P90s"?  How the heck does that work?

        Beautiful guitar - congrats!

        But coil taps are used to split the dual coils on humbuckers so they'll sound like single coils. I  don't understand how single coil P90s could be coiled tapped.

      Mmmm.  The gold top, binding, and dark wood on the body make for a beautiful combination.  Add the P90s and yes, that's a keeper.

         What are the other two? :robotwink:

         

        To the OP: that is a gorgeous guitar.  I've always had a fondness for P90-equipped guitars.  HNGD, and may you have many happy years together. :robothappy:

        So tell us how the coil tapped P90s sound when tapped, if you would please.

        People still confuse coil tapping with splitting. Splitting takes an entire reverse wired coil out of the circuit. Tapping takes a percentage of windings in one coil out of the circuit. A single coil pickup can only be tapped. A humbucker can be tapped as well as split.
