The Edwards Is Here

I didnt end up going with Ishibashi because they never emailed me back, and because I found the exact guitar locally with a hardshell case. So here it is







First impression is good. Seymour Duncans, Tone Pros bridge, and Long Neck Tenon. Overall quality seems good, I really wanted a Les Paul Jr type guitar, but this works just as well, I suppose with the extra pickup versus a Jr, it works better, but there is something that is just raw rock about a Les Paul Jr, but Gibson just makes Custom Shop andBilly Joe Armstrong Jrs. They do make a MF only one, but I wasnt feeling Vintage Sunburst, plus at over $150 less than the one from MF, I'm pretty happy with this.

Re: The Edwards Is Here

Awesome, Gibson-esque so if wizard necks are your thing it's not for you but if you like a neck with some chunk to it it's great.

Re: The Edwards Is Here

I figured they would. P-90's are underrated.

Sweet.

That's about as stripped down, no hold rock as you can get right there.

Re: The Edwards Is Here

Thats what I was looking for, its too bad they dont make a single P-90 version. If I feel motivated, I will remove the neck pickup and fill the hole and fill the extra volume and tone pot holes too. But I probably wont

It's nice, but I'm not into Les Paul Specials.

Im in between work, but I sold a ton of stuff, I was able to pick this up and still had plenty of money left over, and I refinanced my house late last month, so no mortgage payment until august.
