I already have a guitar with double hamburgers (a Godin Core). I love the SGs with the slim neck. Tried an SG standard and would love to pick one up as my next guitar purchase. However, I'd like to get one with P90 pickups. I'm not fond of the SG special and it's baked maple fret board. I really wish Gibson would give a P90 option in the Standard.

I'm thinking of maybe getting one and putting SD P-rail pups in it. But that would cost another 200 bucks plus install. Kind of a bummer.

I know Godin has their Icon 2 series that come with the P-rails. But the guitar is essentially the same as my Core series as far as feel goes.

Find a good used one. The SG Special P90 has badass tone.

I will have a look.

I noticed the new SG P90 is a Standard. But has the baked maple fret board which I think is a lame cheap out.

It isn't.

Suhr wouldn't be using them for their fretboards on occasion if it was lame or a cheap out.

Don't rule it out based on maple. I love my maple neck Tele. Go play one and trust your hands. You will know if it works for you.

If you can't find a good SG with P90s, consider these Reverends.

Check eBay- as I recall, there are a few of those LGXTs floating around on there right now.
