    The BFG's do nothing for me aesthetically, but this on the other hand might be interesting. A Les Paul Studio with BFG electronics. I'd get rid of the kill switch, put another tone pot, some good pickups and RS/PIO/50's wiring to make it sound like something.

    I don't know anything about BFG specs but the 1 P-90, 1 humbucker LP concept is pretty cool. Not sure the PU locations shouldn't be switched. A P-90 in the bridge gives you the whole world of LP jr-like tones.

    I can't imagine what mixing the PU's would sound like. Can you do that?

    Seems there's no guitar players that go by sound anymore.

    I agree that it is somewhat vanilla. Maybe a different color...or an uncovered humbucker...

    This one was out a while ago and no longer available... The Chandler Metro!

    I dig the LP, but the blue sparkle Chandler is just over the top!
