WTF!They are great for blues,funk,or rock.John Lennon had a guitar with P90s.
Also the P90 version is much cheaper considering the finishes.
Heritage cherry sunburst on the humbucker one is $1,319
The P90 one is $850

I've just never played a guitar with them, I know John Lennon used them, I just wanted to know their tonal capabilities.

Everything.


On a more specific note, they're basically the best of both worlds between humbuckers and single-coils(Almost, they still hum). Balls of a humbucker, clarity of a single-coil.

they have orange drop tone thingy's

I'm not sure what purpose they serve in a guitar, I thought they were mostly just used in amps as far as guitar gear goes.


Aren;'t the 50's profile necks pretty much bassball bats? If so, that turns me off this guitar..

Not the same. Only gives you both extremes, P-90's give you that delicious midground though.

hey could p90s handle metal as well as humbuckers? on a side note... do they make p90 buckers (IE Single coil - bucker, p90 - p90 bucker) for a humber tone with TWICE the balls
Eh.

TO the first; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lvKjGnApeZE

Just get yourself a noisegate or stand so the hum goes away and you're golden.

To the second; Probably, not sure where though.

that would actually sound horrendous, more likely than anything, if by that you mean basically 2 P-90s combined in 1 unit. The individual coils within a humbucker don't even have as much "balls" as a regular single coil, and some humbuckers are still boomy and overpowering *cough* epiphone *cough* so if you were to put 2 P-90s together as though they were the coils in a humbucker you'd probably get the muddiest tone in the history of everything.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

Bellamy from Muse has actually done this on a couple of his guitars, but I'm not sure if he uses them both simultaneously.

I saw these before actually.

Want want want want want want want.

All they need to do is re-release the Les Paul Deluxe with the mini humbuckers, and I will die a happy man.

Never had GAS for a gibson.

Too bad theyre listed for £800 in the UK.
May aswell just get the SG classic tbh.


Yeah, I discovered that after posting myself. I guess that means in a year or two, they'll be second hand for 4-500, which would be lovely.

If i was toget one it'd have to be the top or bottom one to be honest not a fan of goldtops or all black guitars.

They look cool. Not a big P-90 person in maple topped les pauls (I love them in Juniors and Specials though).

If I had extra cash lying around, I'd rpobably pick up the gold top.

I can't imagine it'll be the equivalent of $850 over here.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I'm surprised how popular this got over night

I really hope Guitar Center decides to have this model... or some other shop by my house. That gold top is just amazing. I've never liked a gold top guitar as much as I do on this Studio.

And it's a Gibson LP Studio! Nothing fancy at!

If P90's fit my style of music better, I'd definitely pick one of these up.

Originally, somewhat. Actually, the original Telecasters had thicker necks than the early '50s Gibsons, those were the real "baseball bat" necks. Over the years necks got slimmer and slimmer of course. What Gibson now calls a '50s neck profile is actually much closer to how the necks were in the '60s and what Gibson now calls a '60s neck is actually significantly thinner than a real 1960s Gibson neck.
