Hey guys do you think you could use a gibson sg with P-90 pickups for police songs?

I see no reason why you couldn't, Andy Summers didn't use a particularly distorted tone. Just use chorus or reverb where appropriate and you should be fine.

I think he used a tele, so an SG with P-90s would probably get decently close.

Yeah. However, I think the twangy Tele may work better, but its mostly in the amp and effects. Any guitar with single coils will work but say, a Baja Tele, will get you closest.

His tele had a humbucker in the neck.
