Oh No .. what did they do? No ... I just want that black Custom one but with P90s!They offer(ed) a couple different options on the Midtowns. One did come with P90's, but they gave it a narrower headstock and changed the control layout. I could probably live with the controls like that, but the headstock is just wrong.
It's the glossy paint with all new/fresh Gibson guitars, plus the totally missing shield paint (or any other proper shield) in the cavities, which are totally naked nowadays.Yesterday, I noticed something with this guitar...it's very "static-y".
I get a LOT of static popping noises when moving the guitar on my clothes or my hands on the top of the guitar and pickguard.
I switched guitars (grabbed my Strat which was close) and it completely went away.
Sexy Midtown Custom, congrats!Congrats, Midtown Customs are great guitars.
