Recently I got a Gibson SG Classic with p-90 pickups (link below). I was wondering if I could have one of the P-90s replaced with a really good humbucker to give me more varieties in sound. Thanks for the help.

You would have to route the body for a full-size humbucker. But you could buy a dual-coil P-90. I think Duncan has some. Basically a Humbucker in a p-90 housing.

So that would mean I would have to route the body and I could just get it put it in regulary?

DiMarzio makes P-90-sized humbuckers. Hell, since these aren't dog-ear P-90s, you could just pop some mini humbuckers in there if you wanted to.

And no, if you get a hum that's the size of a P-90, you won't have to do any routing.

^That's not going to fit. That pickup fits in a regular humbucker rout. You're going to want something like these:

That first one is a P-90 humbucker, while the other is a mini humbucker that just happens to fit a P-90 rout.

EDIT: i don't think they have humbuckers in p90 housing.
