    Gibson LP Melody Maker 2014 meets your criteria.

    I always seem to forget those had a wraparound. Good suggestion :aok
    Swap some real P90s in one of those, and you've got a great guitar

    I learned from experience that regular P90s aren't drop in replacements for the slug pole models. I was able to shoehorn one into the bridge, leaving it fairly high and with no room to adjust it lower. I like the neck P90S, so I didn't try to replace it, but it would require routing if you did.

    That hasn't been my experience. I've swapped P90s in place of the slug pole pickups in a couple guitars, they dropped right in, the routs were the same.
    I don't mind the slug coil in the neck, but in the bridge I'm not a fan.
