    He was a sonic disaster, thinking hours of practice would make up for stock pickups, poorly carved top and The wrong glue !

    Congrats! I love these and will own one myself in the future. Love the VSB and that pink lined case. Those cases are the best/coolest cases ever!

    How are you liking the P-100's? I am almost sold on the P-90 looks and humbucker sound.

    I'm currently traveling. In the hotel I am playing through an iRig and AmpliTube. Sounds ok. In the store when I purchased it I was able to play it through a Fender Twin, JCM800 and Princeton Reverb. Nice nice nice!

    I had the humbucker version. I loved the round neck and tall frets. I put a Bigsby on it. I sold it because the weight (about 9-1/2 pounds) combined with the large body (about 1/2" deeper than an ES-335) was tiring on gigs.

    Kind of. These are semi-hollow where an ES-225 is hollow. I replaced my ES-135 with a 1959 ES-225TD. I actually prefer the ES-225's bridge. I like wrap tails a lot.

    Fun guitars, although it took me awhile to get used to the semi-hollow characteristics. Not a huge fan of the P100's, but that's easily fixed.

    My buddy has the P100 version. I've offered to buy it more than once, but he won't sell.

    Nice. I have a very similar one, but black.
    Not a huge fan of the P100s, but I haven't yet gotten around to replacing them. They do have their own sound that it nice when played clean, and maybe a bit of hair, but not really distorted.
    Also, it's a bit on the heavy side.
    Other than that I love how it plays.

    Add me to the list as well. A '93 model in Vint SB. Still stock & one guitar I haven't messed with...'cept for tuner buttons. Those snot green ones' had to go in favor of a set of double rings. Weighs a lot...sigh!

    Congrats ~ play it in good health...

    I have a '94. Nice big neck, lightweight, I replaced the Trapeze with a USA B7. Great vibe. "Bad to the bone".
