It's essentially a single-coil pickup.

I think hes talking about the pickups.

I tried them in the store once, they're alright. A lot of people are obsessed with them.
Gear listing coming soon...

I think they are best suited to blues and classic rock, but you may be able to push them into metal. They are a little higher output than many other single-coils. They have a character all their own. Like other singles they tend to get a little noisy with high gain, but not bad. A little shielding gets rid of most of it.

their awesome. i use them for jazz in my es-175. they are a single coil pickup. their pretty hot compared to a fender style single coil. lots of mids for a single coil they have.

edit; haha wow, that last sentence sounded like yoda
#7
Yeah, they are a bit higher output, but still certainly a single coil. My Gibby has P100s, which are the humbuckers of the P90 world. I adore them, lol.

p90 in a guitar??


jk

as stated above... they are best for classic rock imo, i do know people though that love them for punk though. If you wanna go metal buy something else.

Well all single coils hum. P90s have larger casing, meaning they hum more.

Anyway I love P90s and I'd say they're for classic rock and blues. Listen to Tommy era (1969-1970) The Who and Mountain.

nice and meaty, but open with clarity. has that nice single coil "snap" on the lower strings. as was said earlier theyre a bit noisy with high gain applications.
#14
+1 to TahJermie. Listen to "I'm Free" by the Who. One of the best tones from a P90 I've heard. It's got snap and meatiness, like a slim jim

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
