A soapbar is a P-90 single coil pickup. The classic version of the pickup is a rounded-ish rectangle, like a bar of soap. P-90's have quite a following. I've just never seen a P-90 paired with a humbucker, but I'm no expert on it.

I don't know that there's much else to characterize about the guitar specs. The scale length is the same as a Les Paul. At 6.2 lbs it's a fairly light guitar, hopefully its not neck-heavy. Ask questions if you need more.
