This one in a dark Oxblood please, light relic treatment too, and no rear binding.
this is the back or a lollarcompared with an original style
You know what, I am not that bothered about "correct" staples. I don't need them fully adjustable and i certainly don't want to pay the SD price for all that extra metal work that will never get used. it also helps make the vintage ones fairly microphonic. I just want the coil size, magnet layout and (most importantly???) the aesthetics of a vintage staplethat gives us thesehttp://www.thornguitars.com/gt90pu-htm/gt90pu.htmand thesehttp://www.lollarguitars.com/lollar-p-90-pickups/staple-p-90-neckI like lollars... i could go that way
Ohh yeah.. I love a good dark burst... I have a LP Classic, it was my first standard level Gibson and it was always going to be a dark burst.. Im not even sure i like cherry burst. It depends on the exact hue

Been offline a bit, but I like what you are proposing. I have a tobacco sunburst 58 replica and love the look. Mid you I have the Epiphone JB Oxblood, so would have voted for that (with humbuckers).
What about this?
What about combining the ‘best’ (my favourite bits) of them all... oxblood wrap around and p90 sporting thinline, with a lovely flame peeping through the oxblood?
Expensive, but what about a set of these? http://www.lollarguitars.com/lollar-gold-foil-pickups/gold-foil-soapbar
You've had quite a few of Marc's to try, so I'm sure that his P-90 sized will be great (you have a filtertron one, which will probably sound similar. What about one like Neil Young's Old Black:
Would you want to make a replica though? I don't think the stripe adds anything to the guitar (just makes it look like it came off worse form meeting a saw). I was thinking more the pickup combination and style.
