I am thinking about replacing my neck pickup from my sg to a gibson p90. but I want it to be more trebly than bassy. are p90s trebly? I want single coils to make this a more versatile guitar...I was thinking of getting a fender telecaster, but it would cost a lot more than replaceing the pickup..

also how much does it cost to actually install the pickup and how long does it take? I would be doing it at guitar center.

p90's aren't really that trebly, they're more smooth and mellow. It might be better getting some kind of straight up fender-style single coil.

how about the p94s then?

Is the P94 the Humbucker fitting one? See, a P90 is wider and slimmer than a 'bucker and it won't be a nice fit. I know this 'cos I did it on one of my guitars with a DiMarzio soap bar. Actually, that might suit you best as you can coil tap it for a brighter sound or have it full for a strong bluesy mellowness.

p90s are still very "gibsony", even though they're single coils. if you're after fender-style single coil tones, you're likely to be dissapointed...

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
