    I have a bid in, on a Goldtop LP 50s Studio Tribute. It was an impulse bid, but it shore was purty and I had a moment of weakness.

    I'll have to sell something (or do my taxes) to make up the money but it shore was purty and I LOVE P90s.

    I need to be beaten soundly about the head and shoulders.

    When Ron Ellis gets around to P90s, I get the first set. :-D Not holding my breath.

    If you win, I'm sure you will dig it.
    Gibson only made a small amount of 50's Tributes with P90's during the first run. These have rosewood boards.
    All Tributes from the second run have baked maple boards.

    They are great guitars.
    The stock Gibby P90' are great IMO.
    The necks are not Historic 50's fat.
    Mine is .847" at the 1st fret and .975" at the 12th.

    I luv my 50's Tribute.

    The last 50's Tribute GT w/P90' sold for $810.
    So, the present bid may not take it.

    Its okay. Calm down and count to ten. Just do it. You can sell some stuff. I just did this with the purchase of a new amp. its overwhelming but I had to grow a pair. You'll be fine and inspired!

    They have binding on the body but NOT on the neck.

    Not binding. It's the maple top side that hasn't been painted ala PRS.
