Most reissues are too different in materials and build to resemble their predecessors, but this is an inexpensive design that has been affectionately and sensitively reproduced. The P90 is very warm and balanced, with sweet harmonics abounding. It is easy to spot the Chinese hardware, but the workmanship and fit and finish are very good. The simple controls are sufficient. This is a classic reproduction of a classic guitar. Mine needs a fret level and could probably use some work on the nut.
