I’d buy two, one to keep original and one to take a router to. Maybe add a P90 or a humbucker or two or three. I love those slab Les Pauls.
The Special Tribute is available with humbucker 490s instead of P-90s. But it if you wanted a Special with one of each type, then yeah, buy one with P-90s and rout.

Plenty of us own regular P90 Tributes. They completely deliver.
Yes they do, I have a 2011 Goldtop 60's Tribute. I've had a set of 70's Gibson minis in it for about 6 or 7 years, but just ordered a set of ox4 p90's for it. The original p90's I gave to a friend. The mini's worked great in it but I just wanted to try something different.

I have one of these in white. Awesome guitar. Play it more than my Les Paul Classic to be honest. P90's in this thing are great.

In my guitar chest I have a few old P90s..just looking for a slab with an excellent neck.. Also have several real PAF that need a body.. someday..
I have a bastard Fender Coronado body..it may get abused and improved.. Have an old Strat maple neck so it all might be trash,,or might be interesting,,

Always wanted a Leslie West type sound..so maybe an old jr ..we'll see
