  • What kind of P90 Les Paul do you own?

    Personally I have a doublecut Special finished in Heritage Cherry. It's a recent one - serial number suggests '96 but Gibson seem to insist its '94. It's odd - it doesn't have the pickup close to the neck like the old '59s, more like a '60 where it was moved away for a more stable joint.

    Not a faded model, has a bound neck and 'Les Paul SPECIAL' on the headstock, ABR-1 bridge and stop tailpiece. Made in a limited edition run of 300 according to the trussrod cover. Best guitar I've ever played. I'll post a pic when I get it back from my tech.

    I'm curious to see what everyone else owns, especially P90-equipped models as I rate those above all others.

    An old one. The one on the left is an original '54 that I've had for years and years.

      This one!



      It's a Cloud 9 '56 chambered reissue in what Gibson calls a Brockburst (although, as a number of people have pointed out to me, the real Brockburst was a highly flamed 1959 burst that this guitar doesn't really resemble).

          *Drools* oh wow, this is a beaut! '54 Goldtop with a wraparound and PAF P90s... what a vision. It's like Cameron Diaz knocking on your door with a 6-pack of Budweiser, a beautiful dream.

            Another stunner... I get the feeling this is one of those guitars that screams out PLAY ME whenever you lay eyes on her. Great stuff.

            Keep 'em coming people... I can't wait to see any vintage doublecuts if anyone owns one (or two, you lucky devil!)

                I have a '90 Standard with Rio Grande Bastards replacing the average stock humbuckers. Sounds killer.

                      Holy ****************,Don!!!! That reminds me of going to the old Dave's store in Lacrosse back in the 70's-80's when he had a big wall of old Gibsons(lots of old Juniors) with prices going up to about $5-6K and beyond that it was roped off with "Not for sale" signs up. Anyway,IMO, the coolest P90 guitars out there at an affordable price are the old LP Pro Deluxes. They sound so sweet.

                        Funny you should ask, I just posted this in another thread. I have a Specia DC similar to yours, it's a 1995 and I absolutely love it. Please don't make me choose between it and its cousin pictured on the left. I love 'em both.

                        I am not stupid, I just don't type very well.

                            Here is my Agile AL-3000. The pickups sound great, the mahogany neck is fast, and the body is comparatively light (less than 9.5 lbs). A great bargain if only for the pickups. Not my main guitar, but a very nice addition.

                              Since I've seen some Agiles here, this Hamer USA Special should be acceptable:



                              I also do have a Gibby, but it has P-100's:

                              PS-- I have a P-90 Agile as well, but it's the SG-ish Valkyrie, not an LP:
