    @USMarine75 What P90 variant is that? FF? I'm sure that it has amazing tone with that chambered korina body and the darker roast compliments that sparkle so nicely. I know that you just got that one recently so congrats.. she's a looker for sure.

    I never thought that my number one would be Tele style, but here we are. ESP LTD calls it an Eclipse. Sure, ok. I've never heard JB/'59 sound as good as they do in this guitar.

    I still want to get a Fender Tele. Body style and pickup config. It's a sound.

    It was the Wildwood Exclusive Eastsider T P90. Same bridge plus the Joe Naylor designed P90. It's a little dark and theres a strong contrast when you go between neck and bridge (bridge sounds like a Les Paul HB imo)... but omg does it sound great once you adjust to that. I find myself like Nick Johnston - constantly riding the selector. But the neck lead tones need to be heard to appreciate.

    And of course the playability of the guitar in general is just amazing (as you already know). The neck is super comfortable. Its one of my preferred guitars for just plinking away on the couch while we watch TV lol.

    Depending on how things go, probably gonna get the black + chrome twin brother, or get the contemporary HH Tele to pair with it.

    Gotcha. I thought that's what it was but I know that Rev uses several different P90's in different models. I really dig the treble bleed circuit and the pull phase is amazing on this particular guitar. Truly responsive and dynamic tone control on these instruments. Same as you've noted regarding the neck comfort. It's just so solidly built and at the top of the heap out of all my guitars in terms of tuning stability.

    EDIT> Haha.. love the pic of the kiddo... She'll grow into it!

    This is my main guitar. It's a 90s MIJ 62 reissue tele. I modded it with a BKP aftermath and a kill switch. Kills in drop C

    Wirebirds are as rare as unicorns. Congrats on owning one, and a stunning one at that!
