No' date=' I paid about £8 for them from a mail order company. So easy to install and in my opinion, looks much better then the original Speed Dials. [/quote']

 

Yaff...Do they fit pretty flush with the body? They look like it but hard to tell....and are these the same ones?:

Hi all,

 

first time posting here. Here's mine. A 93 LP Studio Lite in Trans Black. Just recently acquired from a friend of mine. Sent it for re-loving and installed new Alnico II Pro Slash Pups. She sounds really great...well..to me at least.

I like the fact that you changed the tuning keys' date=' now install some top hat knobs and it will be badass![/quote']

 

Ok decided to go with the top hats and also went with CTS pots and Luxe repro BB's with the 1950's wiring.

The BB's really opened up the tone range.

Well. Here's my baby. I've named her, "Rosalie." She's a 2010 made Les Paul Fireburst with gold hardware. It was originally $1319.99 but believe it or not, because of a ding that's actually pretty noticable but I don't mind it at all, it got marked down to $799.99. The ding can be seen on the third picture, it's on the top edge.

50s studio tribute finally showed up. Shipping to Canucklehead land was...fun...

 

Loving this guitar so far, though I want to let the honeymoon period end before I pass judgement. I will say this is the first studio I picked up and liked right away. Quality fit/finish.

 

Feels good, sounds good.

I paid 800 US. Depends on the dealer.

 

Black wasn't my first choice, but color is a distant third behind fit/finish and tone for me. Looks better in person than in pics, thankfully. I took a chance ordering, figuring I'd easily sell and get my money back if I didn't like it. Long & McQuade (the only Gibson dealer in Canada) told me that they aren't getting any tributes.

 

I don't know if the P90s are hum canceling. They don't hum much on my setup, but they aren't as quiet as the BB Pros in my standard.

No, P 90's are Gibson's single coils, and they've got a very cool and unique sound. Been around for many years (preceded the Humbuckers and were in the very first Les Paul models from '52-'56 and are in the reissues of those years).
