This used Les Paul they have for sale at the Nashville Guitar Center has been heavily modified from it's original state and I have not played it or spoken to anyone at the store about it. But that said, I would expect that if someone was going to pull the pickups out of a Classic (they came stock with 496T and 500T Ceramic pickups) and replace them with P90's as two of these are - I'd think they would use some pretty darn good pickups - wouldn't you? Maybe Gibsons or Fralins. I can't tell by looking but the Bridge Humbucker in this guitar is definitely not the stock 500T - it is a rails humbucker of some sort.
The mods don't stop there, though. The original 3-way switch has been replaced by three mini switches - I'd guess that they turn each pickup on and off, which gives you every possible combination of the three. And then of course there is the Bigsby and they chose a full blown B7 (ala Neil Young's Old Blackie) which just looks oh so cool giving this Les Black Les Paul some serious old school retro rock and blues appeal.
That's a lot of guitar for $899 (+ tax and shipping). It's hard for me to resist - how about you? - JC
