hello. tommorow im getting a new guitar. it is a 1980 Gibson Sonex 180 Custom. This guitar sounds better than a Les Paul and I'm getting it for dirt cheap, $525 to be exact. I love the bridge pickup. it can do almost anything, but im not too fond of the neck pickup. I was looking more for a p-90 sound, but i saw in another thread that the p-90s that are humbucker sized dont sound like a true p-90. Any recomendations?

Well.. the Seymour Duncan Phat Cat's do have a single coil/ P90 Vibe, but are brighter than most P90s (larger size..)

Also.. I would have to agree with the 'Slash pups' aka Alnico II Pro - very very clear under any gain levels.

Besides 'P90' what else do you want in a pickup? What do you play?

my style is very very alternative. my bloody valentine, pixies, smashing pumpkins, green river, neil young, husker du, cream, fugazi, modest mouse, rem, and sonic youth all in one bag.

I would oddly enough suggest a Seymour Duncan 59' or Seth Lover (squeals with highgain.. like a real P90!) for the neck position - 59 especially nails cream tones, and I play ALOT of Neil Young and use the neck pickup. It also has a crystal clear clean.
