I picked up my first semi-holllow guitar last week. I'll post pics of it tonight.
It's a really clean 2002 Gibson ES-135 tobacco burst with humbuckers. When I plugged it in, it sounded really dark and muddy but it had acoustic strings on it and was set up poorly. I cleaned it up, set the thing...
Mostly my goldtop... it started life as a 2013 Les Paul Traditional Pro II. I gutted the electronics (boost, split pots, etc,) replaced them with CTS pots and 50's wiring. Pickups went bye-bye... it now has double cream Bare Knuckle VHII's in it.
Bridge, stoptail, tuners... all replaced with...
Zzounds sold me this one for $1100 USD plus sales tax. The color is called Orange Sunrise.
The fretboard is Richlite. Shouldn't have trouble ordering one and getting it across the border.
And thanks for all the positive notes, everyone!
So, I had to do it. The price was too sweet not to pick one of these up.
I've been itching for a P90 Les Paul for a couple years now and could never find one that worked for me when I had the money for it. These were $500.00 less than the other colors - I thought I would have to suffer with...
I just pulled the trigger on one of these today - Sunrise Orange. I bought it because of the price - $500 less than the other colors.
Now that I see some decent images of this guitar, I'm glad I did it. I may do the cream treatment, as well.
These are terrific guitars. I ordered one amost as soon as they released them last year.
If this is the limited edition 2018, it has a 50's neck.
Can't seem to find any options for me except Platinum, though. Probably because my Gold Membership is still good until November 30.
