Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? yes,Very well built!Mine is a midtown custom natural and I didnot find a flaw on its darling little body.What a neck feel only if i was a few yrs younger. General Your general opinion of this product. Well if I was a peice of wood it would be having little midtowners on the way. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? picture a gibby LP,Es335,with the speed of the SG all in one.the middle set on toggle is like a LesPaul Hibread detoned slightly the other settings are toned like a ES335. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Natural finish is mine and it is flawless with high shined.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Structural build quality is excellent and the fireburst finish looks great, including the cream binding on the top and the neck. The neck feels comfortable, the inlays look cool and all frets are nicely finished. The strings were poorly intonated and the nut required a little rework as well. For an entire day, the guitar constantly went out of tune. General Your general opinion of this product. The playbility, tones and finish are good and the construction is beefy but still lightweight. I wish Gibson had not used a blemished piece of maple for the top, but it's no real defect and entirely natural after all. The variety of exciting tones makes up for small blemishes. This is an affordable no-nonsense guitar with many great tones and superior playability. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The Midtown Standard P-90 offers quite a nice palette of tones. All the way from the 'jazzy' neck pickup to 'Rickenbacker tone' and a touch of Telecaster, cranked up and with Overdrive added, the guitar can wail, sing and occasionally scream its heart out. This is second P-90 guitar and these PUPs deliver! Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Photographs of the fireburst seem to accentuate the red and yellows, whereas my Midtown finish looks tasteful and first rate. My guitar has a few blemishes under the top coat, a few dark streaks in the maple top, but I have already 'bonded' with this guitar and like its personality.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Very well put together and is pretty as heck. If I were you and considering this model do it now. They won't make this one for long I suspect and the unique nature of this guitar worth the price. General Your general opinion of this product. I am very pleased with the look, playability and sound of the P-90s. I rolled this guitar round in my head for several months before finally deciding to get the wine red model. Its very upscale without be too pretentious and so far has been able to play every style I've put to it so far. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Everything I expected and lots of variation with the tone pot and swithching. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? 3 low spots in the Wine Red on top but that is not an issue the rest of this instrument is perfect and very nice - lots of tone, class and playability
