This Les Paul Special is a custom order with the up grade Grover tuners, the tone from the P-90s is somewhere between a Tele bridge pickup and a standard PAF style humbucker. Warning, the P-90’s will give you a little more hum than a Strat because the bobbin is wider, and shorter and also has a more powerful output, very beefy tone! There’s a bit more midrange than a standard Tele or Strat single coil. The overall tone is very well balanced and if you like the Keith Richards slightly overdriven tone it’s here in spades ! I was pleasantly surprised that is works well for jazz tones ! The neck profile is a perfect size for my hands, not too big not too small and the frets are slightly taller than some other Les Pauls I’ve played and are very comfortable to bend with no problem, no fretless wonder here :) This guitar is a great choice for classic rock, blues and slide styles. If you’ve never played a P-90 equipped guitar you owe it to yourself to do so and this one is the perfect version in my humble opinion, highly recommended !

Let’s say humidity is 50% for 3 hours around noon. But is a lot higher in the morning and evening. Can i do three coats in one or two hours while the air is dry and then let it sit over night?
