Honestly, if I had $900 and wanted an LP with a 60 neck I would probably hold off for a month or two and try and save another 300-400 bucks and find a good used standard or equivalent (Classic, t, traditional). There are good deals to be had on used LP's if u do some looking and you will end up with what you wanted not a copy of it. If that's not an option I would buy a used LP studio.

+1. You may as well go all the way.

I'm sure there are others, but the two Edwards I had came with JB in the bridge. Not exactly low wind.

I say, save up and get a used Studio. Pickups optional.

This is TGP, bitches!

If I had $900, I'd hang my head in shame, lay in the fetal position for a few days then I'd get my **** together rub one out, buy some tan pants and get a job that paid at least $2,500 per week and get an R9. An R9 selected from a batch of R9s. An R9 with a super pretty top. Only an R9 is good enough.

Most of the 60's Tributes have P90, but I've seen them with other pickups as well. The tributes are hard to beat, I love mine! If you can deal with the simple nitro finishes (Which I personally prefer to the gloss ones for some reason), you'll get a great deal.

They have a "traditional" model, is that what you mean? That one can be had for around $1200 used I think. GC has some clearances you may want to check too. $900 not quite enough for a full feature Gibson, unless you find one with a cracked neck. The THC Les Paul from Japan is $1k, and it will cost you another ~ $120 to ship it. Best deal for $1k that I found.

Lots of LP Studios for under $900 though.
