Oh man I love it. It's got a ton of snap and crunch, easy to play, great feel, all the things I was hoping for. A lot closer to my old Jr. than an old SC Melody Maker which is fine by me. The Gibson P-90 sounds great so I'll hold off on the Vint/Ant swap for now. I did pull the ceramic cap and pop in an Orange Drop, same value .233. I measured the pots at 270k and 285k (mostly did it for Lew ) A single pup and 2 controls, God I love simplicity!
You use the vol/tone combo on this guitar to make a lot of tones so i msy pop on 500k pots at some point but I've run 300k with P90's for so long I am afraid it might be too bright, this thing sounds killer in the XXX and the Orange so I am good with it as is. It's getting a Jr. guard, gold knobs and Schaller Straplocks and it is done, whoohoo!!!
This sucker is just a rough and ready guitar waiting to be bloodied. I recommend cheap Gibsons to everyone, they open up something in your playing that just doesn't come out on fancier guitars.
