Still one of my most unexpected purchases. I was shopping for epi LPCs and I really wanted humbuckers but I saw the 1955 on the wall, brand new, $800. Out of my budget, I was trying to score a used LPC for 400 or less.the 1955 is a winner for sure.
I tried the 1955 anyway because why not? I fell in love immediately. I spent the next 6 months shopping for a double p90 les paul I could afford and just couldn't find one that did it for me.
But someone bought the 1955 and traded it in and it was up for $450, mint with all the case candy.
I had just bought a guitar and was on the last day of return, so I did the swap.
