Hey, I'm looking at getting one of three guitars...

http://www.rondomusic.com/ad2300jr.html
http://www.rondomusic.com/ad201vwht.html
and http://www.rondomusic.com/product2711.html

However, the first two, which I like the look of more, have p-90's, and I would need humbuckers.

Would I be able to directly replace the p-90's with humbuckers, or would I need to do some extra routing. In which case I'll probably get the 2000 and some different pickups.

On a side note, has anyone played one of these guitars? Or wants to recommend me a better new/used guitar in this price range? And a gig-worthy amp for about 400-500 would be nice if anyone knows it.

I play metal, budget is absolutely not over 600.

Thanks!

You'd have to do some routing.

Unless you want to get stacked P90s, but they don't sound exactly the same.

Why are you looking at P90 based guitars for metal? Get a metal influenced guitar that's fit for purpose.

Epiphone Les Paul Standard w/ SD Alnico Pro II's
Fender Aerodyne Telecaster & Stratocaster
Marshall JCM 800 4104 combo

I know, I have a telecaster with a P90. It can get metal tones, but I wouldn't buy one just for metal. I'd buy an LTD deluxe for the money, it'll be a lot easier and more comfortable to play faster and higher and sound just a little better due to having humbuckers.

If you want a guitar w humbuckers then get the one routed for them. You wont get very much selection in stacked or humbucker style in p90s size vs regular humbuckers.

As a note you can use p90s for some metal, nothing really brutal. Iommi has used em in the past for early sabbath.
