Wondering what Gibson has in the Les Paul form that is P90 loaded? I know some of the models like the R4 and R6, the Specials and Jr's but I'm sure they have more. Anyone one want to help me put together a list? Feel free to post links and pictures with some description. I've been tempted for a while and it would be good to know my options just in case I break down.

Get an Historic Special. These are awesome and relatively cheap. I said "relatively". They can be found used at a good price.

I like these, sadly the non historics they put out in the last few years have been underwhelming and Ive tried multiples of them.

Someone on this board was selling a P90 equipped SG not long ago with some upgrades and it was really reasonably priced. Like $600 or something. I regret missing out on that one. I played a P90 SG at L&M one day and it was pretty awesome.

I tried going the SG way but it didn't work for me. I think I need to be back in the LP game. The R4 for sale in southern is driving me nuts, I wish he was closer. I'm trying to meet up with him in Calgary.

If look and feel and playability of the Epiphones were good, you could always upgrade the pickups. There are a fair number of Canadian pickup builder to start with.

I got my 60 Historic used from a Canadian dealer for under two grand. It IS a great axe.

A friend has one I'm borrowing all the time. This is a great, great guitar. I love P90s with wraparounds. I have a Pete Townshend SG and a 60 Les Paul Special and they kill.
