If I would get a guitar with a single P-90 pickup, would I be able to get a deeper, darker tone out of it? I've heard p-90's before, but they've always had that sharp crunch to them. Would I be able get different sounds out of it, or would I just have the one tone?

well I don't think they would do a dark tone... they'll probably sound really cool though, but dark...deep? That calls for a humbucker.
Of course EQ can change quite a lot!

Go with a hummer, P90's aint the way for deep groaning sounds.

If im thinking of the guitar youre thinking about, dont be a noob!

Gibson Les Paul Jr.

I know...Lot's of people hate it and it comes with a "Billie Joe Stigma"

But, it's in my price range, so I figured I'd take a look at it.

Thanks for the replies.

The P-90 isn't the most versatile pickup, especially if your guitar only comes equipped with 1 pickup. If the P-90 sound is your thing, then go for it. You're pretty much limited to a single tone...

I doubt some of the previous posters have ever played P-90 pickups before. They're a classic pickup for a dark tone.

However, if you're talking about a guitar with only one pickup in the bridge position, then you won't get as deep as sound as you would if the guitar had a neck pickup. The neck position is where the darker tones come from. The bridge position is always brighter, no matter what the pickup is.

Then I think I'll stay away from it. I'd like to get a guitar that's more versatile...I guess I should focus on guitars with humbuckers.

Thanks everyone.

You're washburn has hummers, i also see you've a MG.

Why not get new pickups for the washburn and get a real amp?

Because my Washburn is made of basswood, which as I've heard is pretty cheap. I'd prefer a nice mahogany guitar with a set mahogany neck. I'm looking into the higher end Agiles as well as some better Gibsons and higher end Washburns.

As for the amp, I just bought it and I like it. I don't know if I got a better quality one or what, but it sounds really good. Plus, I got a good deal on it, so that made it even better. I'm guessing it's one of those rare flukes, like how some MIM Strats can sound as good as MIA Strats.
