Bought this a couple weeks back. Proper love it. Wasn't really gelling with the Hagstrom, it's heavy and I don't like single coils anymore.



Also know of a Les Paul Custom going for cheap that I might snag if I cba. I feel like I'm regressing with my guitars atm.

Same here. It ticks so many boxes, dc, 'buckers, retro and a bit leftfield.

Hovered over them on eBay many times but the reviews put me off.

The Pelham blue model looks awesome.

Do an demo Robert. Convince us.

Congrats, great looking guitar. I had one with mini humbuckers. Liked the unique and very classy look, imo it is one of the most beautiful electrics. Also liked that it was lightweight. Didn't like Epiphone mini humbuckers which were dull and a very skinny neck. I prefer full rounded necks. I read that original Wilshires had comparatively thicker neck profiles. WTR had a vintage one if I recall correctly

I like the skinny neck cause I have Trump hands. Kinda wanna get a Seymour Duncan for the bridge at some point.

Humbucker sized p90s can be good, most of them are pricey though
