Arrived late yesterday. A 2018 Gibson Les Paul P90's Classic in Pelham Blue. Purchased from a guy in a desert climate. This morning she got cleaned, conditioned, polished and a new set of strings. The fretboard was extremely dry. Pictures taken after. Absolutely beautiful guitar. Easy, easy to play. Really like the bridge pickup. Initial impression of the neck pickup isn't as favorable. But I'll give her some time.

That is a beautiful guitar. I love the blue top and black plastic and the P90s are such great pickups.

(OP here) I had an SG with P90's. That was my P90 guitar. But I'm so much more of an LP player than SG player, so I sold the SG. I've been on the lookout for the P90 equipped LP that would fit me and my playing. This came up and I knew this was it. Glad I was patient and didn't already nab something else.

Congrats! A very underrated model, wish they made more. I actually partly got my pelham blue SG special because I liked the look of these classics so much but couldn't find one.

The fretboard looks fantastic btw! You did a great job fixing it up. Love a nice dark rosewood board, it looks almost like ebony in the pictures. Pelham blue top, natural back, black plastics and a dark fretboard….stunning looking guitar all around.
