    Bummer you did't get the winning bid on the other. Man, those are some great guitars. Only will go up in value as there are not many 50's w/P90'.
    Remember, I did say the last one I saw sold for $810. So, did that one.

    I'm sure you'll dig your incoming Studio.
    Enjoy.

    Happy almost NGD.:beer

    If I couldn't have the goldtop, I like the color of this one. I did some reading and the Studios are chambered with '50s profile necks so it'll be lighter than a Standard and have a nice chunky neck. Not fond of the '60s profile necks.

    My other guitars are pretty plain looking so I'm not worried about the looks of this one.

    I just heard from Ron Ellis and it looks like I'll have to buy my second favorite pickups for this guitar, he can't give me a time to get a set of EllisBuckers (my term, not his). Seth lovers will go in for the foreseeable future and I'll put in the Ellis when I get them. Obviously I won't be holding my breath, but the 490 and 498 are just too hot for me.

    Nice! I wonder what that would look like with the plastics changed to creme.

    That era of studio will please you. My cousin bought one around 99-00. He and I sold it back and forth to each other for a decade. He finally let it go out of the family and gone forever at a time when I didn't have the cash/need for it. Sad to see it go. So many good shows and good recordings in that guitar. It was a tank, too. He beat the ever-loving snot out of it and it still delivered.

    Enjoy your new guitar.

    I like the plastics just as they are. But the pups are too hot for me, so it 's Lovers til Ron has time for mine.

    One plastic that WILL come off is the pickguard. Buh bye.

    Lovers are ordered.
