    Dude. I don't what's worse, the fact you made a SOAP reference or that I knew what you were talking about.

    Ok, keeping in mind this is a $79 guitar. I had no expectations except literally displaying it on my wall. But holy smokes, you were rite, this thing is bad a$$!

    The p90's, wow! I mean this thing sounds fantastic. I've never tried them b4. Im speechless.

    The neck actually feels comfortable and plays like butter. I haven't even made an adjustment. ill be using the scotch brite shortly. A bit sharp on the edges, but to be expected. So far, it stayed in tune fairly well, but changing the tuners is a necessity, and may be the only upgrade I do. (any budget friendly suggestion?)

    The volume knob takes both hands to turn...That thing is stiff. No rolling back the Volume at this point. The other knob is fine. The strings, well, frankly they are the worst strings I've ever used. Can't wait to change them out.

    Ok, so this isn't a review, just a quick post on my first observations and an acknowledgement to Drbgood for pointing me to a SOLID deal. $79 Very well spent,..Actually, it's worth the list price IMO. thanks man!!

    Looks great !

    Your first P90 guitar ?
    HA !
    That's not the end of it ...

    BTW, someone (here I think) polished that black finish and it really came out beautiful, showing the grain and all.

    I got cheapy chicom Ebay tuners for like $5. Bgood gave me a link. They are better than the Epi ones, hold tune ok, but have a lot of slack.
    I dont think I would buy them again.

    the stock Epi holes are 8mm, many / most repl. tuners are 10mm.
    Cheap hand reamers can be had at cheapy tool places like Harbor Freight for like $3. works great.
    I may be repeating myself; I have posted this info several times in several places.

    I didnt know my Jr would be such a keeper; I would have spent a little more for better tuners but these do the job.

    Have you tried tightening the button end screws ? It can help gettting rid of slack.

    oh yeah I always dial them in and recheck them now and then on all my guitars.
    from what I have read they should only be "finger tight"
    I use a multi driver -the kind where the shaft is reversible -without the handle and just snug them lightly.

    Probably a range of acceptable manufacturing QC.
    worth a go for $5., and they are better than the stock EPI ones, which feel like they are full of rocks.
