    Get them while they’re cheaper is all I can say. Core PRS/limited production. Someday they’ll be worth a nice penny I’m sure.

    I had always wanted a les paul with P90s but this looks like a way more interesting alternative. Never even heard of them til right now.

    We all hope they will remain cheap.
    Why everything has to gain value in this world?
    I'm already looking to spot some post covid-19 deals :D

    Better than a Les Paul Special from what I've been told, that's even after Gibson has supposedly improved the quality since 2018. Cheaper and good tone, very light...you can't go wrong. The hum version is in the previous post. These were core models back in the day. Highly recommend you grab one if you can. If you can't get the P90, go for hum and swap out the hums if you want. I'm sure if you look on google for a search you'll find one with P90's though.

    When I find the right color Mira X, that hasn't been molested/relic'd, etc, it will be mine. I'm patient like a cat.

    ps-NOT one of the several that are on fleabay from Japan for $1500 or so

    I had a Starla core in gold with hard tail LP style bridge...I should NOT have sold. Loved that thing.

    The green one is in better shape than the pink. However I would prefer it to have the original pups. :(
