There's a sweet one for sale (in TV Yellow!) at my local music shop for $280, no tax. Set neck, Grovers and an Epi dog-ear P-90 pickup.

I know, I know, I gotta try it out myself and I did take it home for a trial. However, I thought I'd see if there were opinions out there as well.

The Epi dog ear p90's are quite nice. I have them in my Casino and it's a tone monster. You should jump on it, dude.

I'd try to get him down to $250, or at least to toss in a case, and then snap it right up.

Thanks, Hack. :thumb:

Even though I now have "too many" guitars, and may offload a few, that one's staying - and being played. I know coldsteal feels the same about his. They're not easy to come by, from what I know. If you love Juniors...

Mine's wearing a SD Antiquity. I made that swap so early on that I can't even say there was anything wrong with the stock P-100. I think that really depends on your amp, its settings, and what you're asking of it. Nothing a Boss Blues Driver wouldn't fix.

I am loving the feel and the fact that it feels like a solid guitar but doesn't break the back like a LP or my Yammy SG. And TV Yellow.....:love:

Yours is like a sexy bitch in high heels and a short skirt....maybe I'm thinking about your Tele too much

I haven't had a chance to plug in, but IYO, what is lacking in the P-100?
they don't have the power of a p90 its weaker more clean if you have old p90s then damn its like a strat to a les paul old hot p90s bonburners barnburners cant remember what there called but at 10 there just ballsy and i argue if you put it with the right amp you can rival ducan invaders emgs and just cut the metal guys off at the knees cut every one down then roll down to 8 you get the aggressive sound just a bit less down again to 2 and its the cleanest thing in the world point being to buy the junior and keep the p100 until you can afford a nice p90 i have a 60s one that im putting on the bolt on junior soon to be shipped p100s just don't have the ballsy aspect most people don't like them either you do like them or you hate them =sorry about the grammar+

Oh no. I avoided an epi like this one two times and you come with those River pics again...
