Do different types of pickups (humbuckers, p-90's, p100's, and regular single coils) respond much differently to effects? Do some handle effects better than others?

i guess yes. if your using like a jazz music pickup it prob wont do good with a metal stompbox. then if you get a distortion aimed humbucker it prob wont do good with jazz clean. so...................ya

Yes, I know that - What I'm tlaking about is actual forms of pickups responding to effects differently. Basically, I'm looking at buying a new guitar, along with some effects pedals, and I'm looking for what the best pickup configuration to choose would be. I'm just looking to make sure that the guitar I choose will be good for using lots of effects on.

The guitars I'm looking at;

Epiphone '57 Reissue Les Paul Junior - P-100 pickup
Ibanez Jet King II - 2 Coil Tapped humbuckers
Ibanez AXS42TKF - 2 Humbuckers
Fender Standard Telecaster - 2 Single Coils
Fender Cyclone - 1 Humbucker, 1 Single Coil

Will any of those handle effects better than the others, or will they all be good for heavey effects useage?

*confuzzled*

The pickups would just affect the bare bones tone. Pedals would modulate that bare bones tone, so yeah, the effect would sound different between a single coil and a humbucker, but not like, react differently. . .

Ok, thank you. That's all I needed to know. I was just unsure if one type of pickup would handle effects better than another. That answers my question perfectly.

Thanks.

yes they indeed do. different pickups automatically have different sound qualities so naturally different pickups with the same effect would have a different sound. humbuckers give off bigger sounds, so having a humbucker with a chorus for example will give off a big engulfing chorus, while a single coil will have a more poppy-crisp chorus. a phaser with a single coil will have a sharper wobbly sound than a humbucker. and so on and so on.

not sure if that helped but i hope it did.

it would be a LOT more accurate to say that Effects respond differently to different pickups.

^Good Point.

Thanks for the advice everyone. I'll keep all of it in mind when deciding which guitar.

anything would get sterile if you drench it in effect after effect.

I doubt I'd use more than 5 effects at once very often, but it will happen. Especially if I get a multi effects unit instead of individual pedals.

As for active pickups, none of the guitars I'm looking at have them, so no worries there. I could see how they'd get sterile much faster though.
