Released in the early sixties, the TV Yellow soon became the sought after workhorse guitar, with its simple two P-90 design and wrap-around tail. Today some originals sell for over $20,000. Our P-90 version has the entire cool factor, yet a palatable price.

My P-90 Special (TV Yellow) just arrived yesterday, and I haven't had time to really ring it out, yet. But my initial impression is, "Wow!!".
I have never before purchased a guitar (and have nearly 20) and had it feel "right" from the instant I first picked it up. This thing fits like my skin. The neck feels like I've been playing it for decades. And the body rests perfectly in my lap. The action might be a tad higher than I'd like. But I'm going to give it some time before I make any adjustments.
The only reason I'm giving it a 4, instead of a 5, is for a couple of thin spots in the paint, down in the lower waist area. It isn't enough for me to care much about. But they are there, none the less.
I got home pretty late last night, so I didn't dare plug it in. But I'm really looking forward to getting home, from work today, and annoying the neighbors. :)
