    You could always call Sam Ash and ask them to match M123's discount promo...tell them you were about to buy one from M123 but would rather buy from them. I do it all the time with Zzounds...

            I bought one and sent it back. Not because it sucked, but because I got the Les Paul 60's tribute for $100 more.



            If you do the price match, it's a great deal. Actually a good deal at $429. You'll likely need to lower the nut slots and intonate the wrap around bridge.



            But it sounds great, and is nice and light. If you have the extra franklin, the LP special is what I would do.

                I do think that when you are considering this guitar, just remember that it is a Melody Maker. It's a bit of a Melody Maker on steroids, but it's still essentially a Melody Maker. I wanted that, so I'm happy with that. But MMs do have their own basal signature tone. And their light feel also adds to some fun.

                Well Dick, it's got a good beat, and I could dance to it, so I give it a 10!

                    Well my other guitar I was looking at prior to my Firebird was a 60s MM, so I think I would be happy.

                        M123 rejected my PM saying they don't PM "closeouts."



                        I'd be interested in hearing if anyone has had different results.

                            I have two of those. One with HB's and one with P90's. No issues with either. I really think the low price is a pleasant gift due to the baked maple fiasco. I can't say it is an investment, but certainly a good deal.

                                I've found the PRS SE to be pretty dull and subdued compared to the P90s I am used to.




                                "Polite" the way I'd put it. Swapped in Gibson P90s and it's a beast.



                                That said, if you like a thinner body and brighter sound, this MM w/P90s should fit the bill nicely.
