  • Cheap P90 guitars

    I'm looking for decent quality P90 guitars for cheap. I like Xaviere guitars but they don't really have a body shape I want in a colour I want. I'd kind of like a green guitar, maybe in the semi-hollow Les Paul shape(Not normally too fond of Les Pauls, but they look very "guitary" with the sound hole).

      I really liked mine - I only got rid of it because I traded it in on a Fender telecaster. I still have the humbucker version with Mean 90s swapped in.

        That's kind of nice, don't really want another Tele though. If it came in green I'd consider it. The gold one's pretty nice though.

          Any of these are a great value for the money. Moreso if you buy used, of course. None of them come in green though. Hardly anything comes in green.

          $150



          $200



          $300



          $500



          $600

            Epi WildKat is basically an LP-type shape. I found one in a pawn for $300 (as noted above, new they "street" at $500):



            Never seen one in green though. There are a batch of turquoise ones floating around.

                Maybe it would be easier if we knew what kind of body shapes you had in mind.

                  Wild Kats had long been on my "guitars of interest" mental list, stumbled on this'un at one of my "regular" pawns. One thing, they can be hard to find a case for if you buy without. The Epi case is like $100 new. They are bigger than an LP but not as large as most semi's. I ended up buying a beater case that forumite Mike Fiasco had lying about, and just stuffing a towel in (not seen in below pic) to make up the difference:



                  Here is a comparison to a Les Paul case, with the one I bought, an actual Wild Kat case would be right in between those 2 sizes:



                  I figured that even w/o case, mine was a pretty good deal. The white blonde finish was a limited run for one year only, so it says "Limited Edition Custom Shop" on the back of the headstock.

                        Which isn't "Green". It's pastel blue-green.

                          Any humbucker guitar cab become a cheap P-90 guitar with a set of Dream 90s or Mean 90s from GFS in it. I put a set of Dream 90s in an Epi Flying V and I love it.

                            I know that you said green, and LP shaped, but I picked up my Schecter C-1 Special for $250 (it had a good size chip at the edge of the goldtop), but I've seen them used for pretty close to that in better shape. Anyway, love the guitar, and I'm a fan of the noiseless P-90's.
