    Had one of these before. they are great little guitars. Super lightweight, pickups were great. I'd probably still have it except for the "One in- One out" rule I made to keep things under control.

    Enjoy!

    Nice guitar! There has been plenty of love for these Epi Specials on these pages.

    I thought I was at that point, one-in-one-out, but I guess not. :oops: I think as long as my wife is cool with it, and I'm not going into debt, I can handle a few more. I think I'm at 27 now...:eek:

    Thanks! I need to lower the action a bit, but so far it sounds sweet. Was playing it through an origin 20 head and origin cab and Zeppelin riffs sounded so good!

    Yes sir, it certainly is!

    P90s are my favorite. The TV Yellow is on my list too, lol. Not a fan of red guitars personally, but Cherry finishes are pretty sweet (the woodgrain!).

    PS: I just noticed the pun... those are unplanned too, lol.

    Those are good, fun guitars with wax-potted alnico P-90s. WAY more guitar than the price implies.

    These have the highest price to tone to fun ratio out there. I predict that in a few decades they will be sought after like old 50's LP Jrs are today. Enjoy it.

    I have a TV Yellow and since there a big booboo on it, I came this close to stripping it to see what's underneath. Then dbrian66 gave me a Cherry Red. That one (below) got the stripping treatment.

    Little advice: lower that neck P90 a lot. It will get it to sound very clear and melodic. Middle position will then sound like nothing else, almost acoustic.

    That looks awesome stripped! Thanks for the tip, I will try that tonight since I noticed the neck is a bit muddy.

    Hope I'm not too late ! Make sure to push down on the pickup as you screw it down. Those flimzy thin screws will snap at nothing.

    No worries, haven't had time to try it yet, but I will take care to push down when I lower it. Thanks for the reminder!
