This is the P90 model of the Classic Custom. It has all the great features that the old school P90 Customs had from way back when, but it's at a much more affordable price, I've found. These generally go for a good bit less than the normal Customs. The guitar features a mahogany body with a maple top, mahogany neck with an ebony fretboard, 22 frets, trapezoid inlays, pickguard, binding, hard tail bridge, two humbuckers, two volumes, two tones and a three way switch.


I noticed that these guitars tend to have some fretwork and nut issues. The frets can sometimes have level issues which will cause issues with you start to lower the action. If you notice some fretting out on certain frets, this is probably a good indicator that you need to get your frets leveled. The edges can sometimes be sharp, too. The nuts can also be problematic at times. If you ever tune your guitar and notice some odd sort of ping, then the guitar goes sharp, your nut is binding. You'll need to get your nut recut if that's the case.


The P90s in this are a little brighter than some of the other P90 models that Gibson offers, and this is mainly due to the ebony fretboard on this guitar. The ebony adds some extra treble and cut to the guitar that it wouldn't otherwise have. The bridge in this is great for a hard rock tone, and if you roll down the volume + tone knobs, you can get a sick blues tone. The neck is the same in that it can deliver some great lead tones and strong clean tones, but I find that it can get a bit bright, and I find myself wishing it had a bit more overall power in the neck.


The guitar sounds a little brighter thanks to its ebony fretboard, so if you find that the normal P90 versions of Gibsons tend to be a bit too thick, you'll want to check out this model. It should be perfect for you. If you found P90s to be bright, you'll probably want to look elsewhere as the ebony won't be doing you any favors in that respect. The guitars are good, and you can find some good deals on them on forums if you search around.
