I'm looking for a gold top LP style with P90s...it'll only be used for a handful of songs so I'm not looking to spend a lot

Proper LP shape (no bass side curves "for better upper fret access" though a sharper cutaway is OK) and wood (no basswood, even with a maple top) preferred

Edwards makes a nice one but the only one I've seen under $1000 will only take PayPal (planning to pay with credit)

I have a 2005 Korean Epiphone '56 Goldtop which compares very favorably with much more expensive guitars. I had bought both a 2021 Gibson '50s P90 GT and a Maybach Lester P90 '59 but sold them as they did not really do it for me. Then I found the Epi at €600 and immediately I knew it was the one for me.

I think the earlier (2005-ish) Epi '56 are a bit nicer than the later Pro models.

I recently sold my 2014 Edwards E-LP-125SD/P. Goldtop, Duncan P90. It was an excellent LP, sold it for about $800, like new condition.

I’d suggest keep looking for one of these.

Had one of these as well. Very nice for the price

I think you're on the right track with Edwards -- you know you can pay with a credit card through PayPal, right?
