    Vintage 50's P-90 For Trade

    I bought this 50's P-90 a while back for my 1956 Les Paul Junior. Paid around $700 for it. It measures around 8.3k works well but it's a little too hot and bright for my taste. I'd like to see if anyone has a similar vintage 50's P-90 they'd be willing to trade but closer to the 7.85k range...

    Muddy and Dark P90s

    I just got my hands on a 2018 Les Paul Classic with P90s and I'm having a lot of trouble getting along with the P90s. I've been led to believe that they are much more articulate and clear than humbuckers but what I have noticed so far is that my Tribute's 490t's are much, much more clear and...

    Legit or no? 2006 Gold Top

    Found this puppy and it throws a couple of red flags (consulted my Les Paul guru) and notes that the frets are over the binding, the finish has some sparkle, but looks off, cream backplates, and on top of that, doesn’t have the original case. All signs point to fake... Asked for the SN and it...

    [Updated] Used R8 with P90s from Guitar Center?

    First post here at MyLesPaul, so apologies for any etiquette breach. I stumbled across a used LP R8 on the guitar center website. They list it as a 2010 R8, but it clearly has soapbar P90 pickups, and the listing claims they are original 1956 pickups. I had been looking for a burst LP reissue...

Seems like preserial model, made around 2000, so no serial number on back of the headstock and also wondered...

    Hi Guys, I'm looking for some recommendations for a Goldtop 'Les Paul' with P90's with a neck on the larger size (58/59ish) I'm planning to rip out the P90s and make a Pete Townsend esq reproduction and make it like an early 70s Deluxe with Mini Humbuckers. My budget is around £500-600 and...
