    Johnny Thunders. Perhaps not that well known, but P-90's defined his sound.

    Keith Richards has employed Les Paul Jrs for a while - most notably in latter years as the guitar used for "Midnight Rambler".

    Marc Ford often uses P-90's.

    Steve Hunter. Played for Alice Cooper, Lou Reed, and dozens more. He was also played on Aerosmith's "Train Kept A Rollin'". One of the best P90 sound I've ever heard.
