    Thank you all for the kind words and birthday wishes. The guitar is really something. My wife picked it up at local small dealer - it's new but a made in 2017 ES-LP Memphis model. It has nice rounded C shaped neck that's bound. The neck binding has rounded edges and is very comfortable to play.

    This is my first P90 guitar and I think these Memphis Historic Spec (MHS) pickups sound amazing. Alinco III in the neck and Alnico II in the bridge. The body is double bound and the overall guitar is very light but still feels solid. Having a hard time putting it down. My goal for this year is to practice more and increase my skills - and this guitar has greatly upped my motivation. I think my guitar GAS has been eliminated for some time.

    ......need a better amp

    Congrats that's awesome,guitar and wife.
    When you turn 60 like I just did.well my girl gave me the guitar and the amp. But to tell the truth i,d gladly give up the amp for the 10 years. 60 just feels old. Oh well .
    I just signed up for a guitar class at the college,teacher is the same guy who teaches for big bucks at the guitar academy .good luck. 20181111_193350.jpg
