    Steve How from Yes is selling his '56...he has had this one for years. From the description it sounds that at some point it was routed for hum buckers, but it has been restored to original spec now.

    i recently saw a rig rundown video of YES and Steve showed a P-90 Customn that he used for the faster playing, because it was easier to play on the LP than on his hollowbodies. I wonder if it was this one

    A Les Paul Custom wired for quadraphonic sound? That sounds bonkers. Here's a photo of the guitar (second from right) -- how did he plug it in for quad?
