Found this one on the local Craigslist.  Could not resist, so it followed me home.  Gloss body, satin neck, Matthew's P-90's.  Really comfortable to play, love the neck profile.  It falls right between a strat and a Les Paul Standard  (I already have one of each of those)  Of course, without pics it didn't happen, so here we go.

The pickups rock.  The guitar could use a little bit of a setup as I find the action higher than I prefer from about the 5th fret up.  Its not bad, just a little higher though.  The volume and tone pots are top notch.  I only wish my strat had pots that were as nice as these ones.  With no binding on the body it makes it look smaller than it actually is, kind of like a Les Paul studio model.  Tuffy, you have an open invitation to come up here and take this thing for a test drive anytime.  One other thing, even though its mahogany its a very light guitar, somewhere between 6 and 7 ponds.  I jammed with it Monday night for about 4 hours and didn't feel at all like I'd had a guitar on my shoulder for that period of time.  The fellow I bought it from also had a freaking gorgeous RS-4 in candy green.  He wouldn't part with that one, but I would grab it in a heartbeat.  Had the Lollar Imperials in it, but what a beauty. drool

Congrats Johnny!  I don't have any guitars with P90s (one day ...). Sounds like they rock for you.  Enjoy!
