    I'm already set with P-90 LPs, but I'd like to have that Classic. OTOH, it will cost what I paid for the three of mine, so, nah.

    I like the rear mounted pickups on the Standard HP. I wonder why it's never been done before. Sure, the screws look a little...screwy, but certainly no worse than the gigantic rear covers on some guitars. I know that humbuckers can be mounted directly to the wood without using ears on the pickup by having two of the pole pieces double as mounting screws. I like the look of a covered pickup without rings. Just think, you could have an LP with no guard, no poker chip or pup rings, and never have to worry about matching those pieces ever again.

    I really don't like the "fade" bursts, they look so weird to me.
    That Smokehouse Studio though...

    It's glorious looking, but I just can't justify another LP, especially just because it's pretty.
    Holding out on this one, I'm much more interested in a Gretsch semi hollow right now.

    Don't worry, I'm sure they'll make their 30 millionth identical heritage cherry sunburst for everyone to drool over :thumb:

    I'm not a fan of any of them but the v and explorer. That black p90 lp is OK too. These all continue to look like firebird x's in my opinion

    The black Classic with P-90's kicks much ass. I'll be looking for a used one.

    Is it me, or is the Les Paul a sweet looking guitar?

    The GT with P-90s looks pretty nice, to me.

    Umm guys, remember HJ is an idiot and Gibson will be gone by the end of the year. Let's stick to the script, OK.
