is there any type of modification or anything else that can be done to get a p-90 sound from a single coil or humbucker?
isn't a p90 and automatic gun?
You can get humbucker sized p90s... single sized p90s are nigh on impossible to make due to the construction but you can get some pickups that sound sorta similar. The Harmonic Design super 90 (or whatever it's called) springs to mind, the Dimarzio Virtual Vintage Solo or Solo Pro has a p90 charm about it too though.
actually, i was sort of going for any type of thing that i could change besides the pickups
If you've got a set of Humbuckers already there are quite a few different wiring configurations you can use to change the sound, though some of them will require pickups with four conductors on them. Details here:
hows about parallel wiring, should that produce p-90 tone
If u connect the 2 wires used for coil-tapping to a blend pot then if the pot is in about the middle,it will sound sorta like a p90 (or at least that's what the dude who made the pink floyd les paul custom said-check out the link)PFLPC
