Hey Folks I'm just enjoying my latest addition to my Gibson family this beauty I bought after a research period and for the general impression on this one.
Classic 2018 (2017 in fact due to the first season runs). I was a nice deal ($1800 new).
I'm very pleased with the craftmantship on this particular one. It feels lighter than some of my 9-hole Les Pauls (it weights 9lbs) although it's a solid one. The P90's sounds with clarity and the characteristic growl for what they are famous for (That is something that Gibson has done consistently well along the years). I preferred this color over the gold top just because I didn't have this beautiful color.
I would like to share opinions on this model, also discuss how good is this model (in my opinion the best model of the 2018 lineup) compared to the traditional with

P90 and other P90 models as well.
All in all I'm very happy with her! :dude:

Congrats on the new guitar! Pelham blue is always nice and that is one gorgeous guitar! Also, you can't go wrong with P90s.
