    In the great tradition of MA Pete, I figured I'd start a thread for the 594 Soapy.

    I've already posted an NGD thread, so I won't bother with details and pics, but I figured other 594 Soapy players would enjoy something like this, so have at it!

    Mine's absolute gold. Gold, I tell you! Uh...Black Gold, that is... ;)

    So one thing I've noticed with this guitar is how it rings out so strongly acoustically. Whether that comes down to the hardware and nut, and/or other factors is something I'm not equipped to guess on; maybe it's just a really good individual guitar overall.

    The note definition on chords - the "string to string" stuff - is fantastic. I've never played a guitar this well-defined. All the pitches ring out audibly.

    So much so that if a string isn't in tune, you REALLY hear it. Which is great! You need an accurate tuner with a very good readout, at least with the one I have, because everything that's off is clearly audible.

    This is a fantastic instrument.

    I've been messing with the amps, I tend to set them up a little differently with Soapbars. Give me a few days, and you'll have 'em. ;)

    Yes, indeed! I'm a loyal patient of Dr. Gretz!

    My question might sounds silly, I have no experience in P90's but I've heard many demos and songs,
    so can the split HB on a 594 get close to P90's realm or it's a different ball game altogether?

    I've been a little absent lately and missed the thread. These guitars look awesome. Both those are sweet guys. I'd love to have one someday. Ya know what else would be fun? A semi hollow 594 soapie!
