    and it really rocks. Maple neck ((I would have preferred rosewood but the $550 price was just too good to resist).

    Excellent guitar. I had owned 2 EBMM EVH's and liked them and when I saw a P-90 verion I really wanted one.

    Sounds a bit like a tele. Really wails when cranked. Nice rich complex tone. Amazingly light. It almost feels like a toy. But it's a very cool guitar.

    I like it.

    If it makes you feel any better, RW fingerboards are really rare on those, and $550 is a steal.

    Enjoy it!

    I have an Axis SuperSport with the MM90's. $550 is a steal on one of those. I agree on the tele thing, but give em some gain and they really rock out. Very comfrotable guitar to play. Enjoy.

    Congratullations, I just gort one too, with amatching headstock and curly maple top for 800, so 550 is a great price, congratullations and enjoy that guitar. So far the MM guitars are my favorites now, the neck and playability are just incredible.

    The guitar player who appeared with Emmylou Harris on Jay Leno a week or so ago was playing a gold trem'd Axis SS w/P-90's & rw board & it sounded great. I've yet to play one, but they sure do look nice & for $550 it sounds like a downright steal. :)

    I parted with mine....(but still have another!) Probably the first guitar I reach for...I don't think I've seen one with a RW fingerboard.
