    So reading this post I am in total agreement. It fits right in between the Les Paul and Strat. Clean it is very beautiful sounding. And I have been trying to understand it with my overdrives (Tube Screamer and El Jeffe). Itís like because it sounds different than the other guitars, I have to understand the overdrive tone. That just happened while playing today.

    The MM90's (and many other P90's as well) react differently with gain than 'regular' pickups. Experiment with knobs/settings on your amps/pedals and the guitar... that thing -will- rock!

    No Iím not going to refinish it. Itís very nice as it is. Everything is perfect on this guitar. The setup and tremolo are very good. I really like the tremolo, it is so sensitive as compared to my Strat. The paint chipping does not bother me at all and when you want refinish work done you loose the guitar for so long. I have always wanted a vos lp but I think that this mm equals or surpasses lpís. I canít believe the quality, you just feel it in the guitar. I will still look for another lp but now I will not get one until I find the right one and it doesnít have to be vos, just sound and play good. The workmanship is incredible on this guitar.

    I took me a while to educate my ears and my gear to MM90. It rocks for sure. I LOVE it now.

    The big plus about that is you can comfortably play it without worrying about those pesky scratches...

    Battle Scars. If it hadn't had a painted head stock I was going to make an offer and do what Jason did and have a repaint done. Nice snag.

    I guess my question would be: how close are the MM90 pickups to the classic P-90 sound? Can they Mississippi Queen?

    True. But as it is it looks great. I am so careful not to damage guitars. But it is definitely a guitar to play!
