i've never tried one, but they look amazin...i love the one on the right...
general rule of thumb: if you love the look and the feel, go for it coz fx pedals can hide a bad tone (not strictly true, but looks ARE the main reason you buy a guitar)

Your rule is true, but your reasoning isn't.

If you love the look and feel go for it. Almost everything related to sound (pickups, wiring, pots, bridge, nut.. ) can be upgraded if need be. You cannot upgrade the feel of a guitar.

Not too many guitars have P90s nowadays. Can't name many off the top of my head or anything.

Still, Washburn's a trustworthy brand. Go for it.
Do YOU know who Les Paul is?

You can't really upgrade the body, though. That's where most of the sound comes from.

I once had a guy at a guitar shop that had the complete opposite opinion, he said that as long as you like the sound, then they could change the feel to suit you

No offense dude, but thats probably some of the worst advice I've ever heard. Looks should come secondary, the guitars sound and playability are far more important than its looks. I know I would way rather play an ugly guitar that I could play and have it sound nice than a guitar that looked killer but was a pile of ****. I understand it to a point, like deciding between two models you really like or having a special finish or body shape as "icing on the cake" of an already good guitar, but it should absolutely not be the main reason you buy it.

You can change the feel of it to a point by setting it up good, but you cant really change the neck profile if its too thick or thin.

Like the one on the right. Don't think there needs to be any other type of goldtop but Gibson Les Paul. Pretty sweet looking guitars though.

TS seymour duncan is making a pickup that combines a p-90 and a single coil. And you can split them with a push pull. Look into that maybe?

I've got a cheap strat copy that I put Jason Lollar P-90s in... The guitar was $110 and the pickups were $180...

Sounds awesome though... the only thing I don't like about that guitar is the neck... I have small hands and it's a little fat but other than that it its a good guitar... the pickups are awesome... I don't know how the washburns would be... Lollar pickups are a bit more expensive...

They have kind of a humbucker/single coil sound... it's weird... they have that sound when you're on one pickup. You wouldn't expect that from a single but they sound awesome.
