WOW!

I had no idea Itchy.

You're pretty sure about that?

I'll have to look into that.

Thanks for the heads up.

Although not quite the same, I recently bought this Les Paul special from a guy on Reverb. TV yellow. This bad boy has a super wide neck. Almost like it was made for bar chords. It came with the etune system that I removed and put Grovers on it. I also changed the nut to a tusq that is made for this 2015 beast.

I don't know really of anyone else who makes them like that unless it's some offshore thing I don't know about...but I doubt anyone would pull a stock Gibson P90 for a cheap import. I'm about 95% sure - let me know what you find out! I think they put their name on the bottom of the baseplate so it should be fairly easy to tell when you pull the pickup.

Stratluvr - That's a real beauty you've got there.

I wouldn't mind have one exactly like yours.

VERY nice.

Itchy - I bet you're right about the pickup.

After you made me aware of this, I started looking online and found that only Rio Grand P-90 had those center mounting/adjustment? screws.

I've got it at my guitar tech's shop right now.

I'll ask him to look under the hood to see what king of P-90 it is.

Ryder - Sorry about the GAS.

It happens to me all the time.

I guess if I just stayed away from the forums I'd be OK.

Oh well.

I have a black Gibson LP Jr. Special with 2 P90's that is pretty killer and a bit more versatile. But, when I want nasty LP Jr. bridge pup tone I go to my Gretsch Electromatic Jr. with a Dan Grosh P90 in the bridge installed and setup by Mass Street Music. It is a little beast! Beautiful playing guitar that just wants to go all out Mississippi Queen style!

Beaut!

A decent Junior is still way up there on my wish list.

The first 5 minutes of this (25 min) vid gives a good overview of the flexibility of a Junior.

Here are two Les Paul Juniors that haunt the caves of Peegoo Mountain.

The sunburst Junior is a 2010 factory issue that I gigged for a few years. The limed white one is a 2008 historic '58 DC with a fence post for a neck. It's my favorite guitar at the moment.

I'm in the process of scratch-building myself a red one.

Junior #1 and Junior #2. Lord have mercy...these are tone machines.

Peegoo - Those are some VERY nice looking Jr.'s.

That Lime colored one is WOW. I really like that one A LOT.

You've got a great pair right ther.

I can't wait to see when your red one is done.

I pretty sure I'm going to be seeking out another Jr.

Why not.

Here's a picture of my Gretsch Faux Jr. Yeah, it has a bolt-on neck and a poly finish, but that's OK!

I really like those Gibson P90s. I've got an SG with 2 of 'em in there, and it's a great sounding guitar. I'm also surprised at how versatile it is: you don't HAVE to make it all snarly and crunchy unless you want to. It can be very chimey and almost jangly with the volume down a bit.

Urbton - I experiencing the same thing your talking about.

I you turn up the gain and volume on the amp, you can turn down the volume on the guitar to 5 or 6 to give it a cleaner OD.

When you want to get some heavier crunch or lead tone, you just turn it up to 8 or higher and your there.

You just adjust the tone control to taste.

These guitars are way more versatile than I thought.

I'm glad I finally joined the club.

Better late than never.

jhawker, I played an Electromatic Jet like the one you have; it was on the used rack at a GC a few years ago.

The frets and neck were fantastic, and it sounded GREAT. It was very light, in pristine shape, and a measley $100. But I already have too many guitars.


...as if that's a defensible excuse to not get another guitar :o|

When you reach the point I have, it Just. Might. Be. Possible. to have too many.

How many do I have? I really don't know.

But it's enough to open my own guitar store :o)

Peegoo - HAHA! I'm in the same boat.

I could easily open a small guitar and amp shop.

Look at my profile and you'll see what I mean.
