    Hey Kim, I was looking at the P-90s on your site... How does an original compare to a new Gibson one or a current replacement? I was thinking of getting an original 50's one for my Jr.

    I have always traded out the stock Historic P-90's with originals.
    Nothing like a 50's P-90:dude:

    ...I yanked the clear bobbins from my '69 for a set of '50's.A noticeable difference.

    Special pickguards.The guard on top is off the TV and the guard on bottom is off the cherry one.Note the pickup route differences between the two. Goes to show that these were hand cut,unlike today's pickguards.
