    Well, this is just a lil video demo of my new Harley Benton TE-90 QM... Those of you that followed the nightmare of gettin it from Thomann music in Germany to my door KNOW what a pain it was to land, but then again, a lot of the BEST ones aren't easy to get! Lol...

    But I'll say this; It was definitely worth the 6 week+ wait... This thing is ROCK solid! It feels a LOT more expensive than it was ($210 shipping included)...
    And just LOOK at it! Lol... That carved, quilted maple top is just gorgeous, AND really comfortable, too!
    And it was full of nice lil "surprises" too, like the Tusq XL nut (usually my FIRST mod to all my guitars), the nice D'Addario strings, full size pots, the GREAT Roseacer fretboard (my first expierence with it) and the really beautiful, subtle Mother Of Pearl fret markers...

    But the biggest surprise was these pickups! Man alive! It's my first guitar with P-90s and it's one of those "Where have you been all my life?!?" kinda deals, lol... They're REALLY clear and loud clean, but they don't lose a BIT of articulation even with really saturated drive... Clear as a bell... But here's the trick; When you combine those killer pups with the mahogany body, you get all the clarity, with added bass frequencies and response (especially on the middle and neck positions!) WITHOUT it sounding muddy... OR "ice pick-y"...

    There's just no way to tell ya how impressed I am with this thing... ESPECIALLY at the price point... I can't say how the bottom level Harley Benton stuff is, because this is one of their Deluxe models and my first HB, but Thomann really knocked it outta the park with this baby...

    Last thing; Most of y'all know that I'm a die-hard Squier fanatic, but I'm like that because I'm a "value" type guy... But with prices goin up pretty much all the way across the Squier line, that made me turn my head in other directions... And boy, am I glad I did... My buddy, (and frequent bass player extrodinare) @LDS714 got himself one of those Harley Benton resonater basses and it's great, so that put 'em on my radar...

    Oh, and I'm playin it through my Katana 100, and usin a Boss CS-3 "sound-good-izer", a Kokko Tube Screamer clone, the AWESOME Joyo Ultimate Drive (also by Thomann) and lastly I'm usin my Kokko Distortion for full blown gain...

    Without further ado;

    There's almost 600 posts on the Epiphone LP Special 1 by itself, on this forum. So, it's been around for a lonnnng time, you were just not seeing the light.

    Now enjoy and multiply.

    You get a lot of guitar for $180. Bound f-holes and metal knobs are extras that usually cost more.

    Nice!

    And seriously, if the other one shows up, let me know and we'll get on the phone with Thomann and see if they'll negotiate a deal for it.

    You need to stop by the house before we go out on tour again and try out my Les Paul with the P90 pickups!

    I love P90s. I have an Epiphone Wildkat and a Fender Mustang both with P90s and they are two of my best sounding guitars.
