I want to at some point buy a P-90 Les Paul, and was wondering if anyone knows about the models enough to tell me the cheapest Les Paul that would have P-90s and hopefully 4 knobs (a volume and tone for each pickup). I would likely be looking at Epiphone, and was wondering if there was anything just above the Special P-90, that would have 4 knobs instead of 2.

Poke around Rondo Music wile you're looking. There are some versions well below $300.

Your best bet if from the US would be one of the Agile's sold by Rondo Music, Once you get past the plank body bolt on neck Specials you see a price spike to the more traditional carved top set neck traditional designs with the 4 pots, Although there was a Special limited edition with the 4 pots and P-90s awhile back, But by the time you get to that price point your better off with the Agile,

What is your actual budget?

Are you willing to shop used?

I was more of wondering for the future when I do decide to buy one (I like to plan my purchases far in advance). I am willing to buy second hand as long as it's not as bad as the last second hand Les Paul I tried out (really loose knobs, one not working, and the pickup selector not actually sticking out). It was in the worst condition I have ever seen a second hand instrument in. No wonder it was about the same price as the next lowest model.

If you change your mind about needing 4 knobs, some of the best P90 LPs under $1000 are used Godin Icon Type 3s:

I linked the wrong thing

http://www.gibson.com/Products/Electric-Guitars/Les-Paul/Gibson-USA/Les-Paul-Junior-Special-P90.aspx

it's this thing. go for about 800.

there's a double cut version of that guitar that comes out every few years. I used to have one. It's pretty good. they go for around 500-600 used.

That one looks reslly good.

I think i paid 650 for it 5-6 years ago. The only problem is is that I don't know what that model is called and gibson has another model just like it from the custom shop with a single piece wraparound bridge that's like 3000. So every time I try to find the model for you that other one pops up. Maybe danny can help.
Prs se Holcomb is the answer

Find an Epiphone '56 Goldtop. They're exactly what you want and are relatively easy to find locally so you don't have to risk buying a brand you aren't familiar with.

I usually see them going for like 300-500 CAD in my area so chances are you can find one for a decent price.

That also looks like it would be good. I'll listen to sound demos to decide which of the selected models in this thread I would want. Thanks everyone! (New suggestions are still welcome)

I know. Its probably easier just to buy a P-90 Les Paul, though. Especially because they used to be exclusively P-90s. Plus, it makes sound demos easier.
