I have been reading the "reviews" of this guitar by those who have never played it. It looks different than the average guitar, that is true. This guitar is a great guitar. It plays like a dream. The P90 pickup is sweet to the ears. The dirty fingers pickup gets right to business. The dirty fingers has a split coil control in the tone switch. It has a three position pickup switch. It is light weight. You can mix the P90 with the humbucker or you can mix the P90 with the split coil on the humbucker. You can play just the P90 or just the humbucker or just the split coil of the humbucker pickup. This is a Gibson through and through. I love this guitar.
