Humbuckers. A decently strong one by the bridge, say a Dimarzio Fred or Mo Jo, and a mini by the neck. With some switching options, a LOT of usable tones will be available.
P90s for me. I like the sharper bite of the single coil.
Right now I have only one with P-90's. I like this one better over the one I had with humbuckers.
If I could have any LP I want it would be a LP Special with humbuckers! Yes, totally the opposite of what I own...
Humbuckers, that split.
P90 in the bridge, mini-humbucker in the neck. Goldtop finish with the wrap-around 53'-54' style, and we are in business.
I would get one with P90s because I currently don't have a guitar with P90s and have 3x with HBs. Plus, I love Nigel Tufnel's Goldtop/P90 LP in Spinal Tap.
Humbuckers. Noiseless, amazing with drive, and tasty with compression and fingerstyle.
One of each please!
I love Specials or Juniors with a p90 in the bridge, but I like Standard/Custom with buckers.
I have one with humbuckers, a Special with P90s (which I've AB'd with R4s and R6s and it doesn't sound much different for practical purposes, some but not nearly as much as I'd expect), and a CR8 with Harmonic Design Z90s which are hum sized singles loosely based on P90s.
If I had to pick one of those, it would be the CR8 with Z90s. But I don't, so I won't!
Humbuckers. I like my Les Pauls with humbuckers and SGs with P90s.
I definitely veer towards P90's, but you really gotta have both in your arsenal to get your groove on.
As many of each that will fit between the neck and bridge.
The correct answer is 'yes please'.
Please expand on this thought.
Depends on the sounds I'm going for and what I like better.
For the most part I like HB equipped guitars. That doesn't mean I wouldn't like one with P-90s though.
I've been killing a lot of time at GC lately and by far my favorite guitar to play has been the 50s tribute Les Paul with P90's. Volume and tone pots are super interactive. I was able to dial in sparkly cleans on the neck with the volume halfway then flick to the bridge and roll down the treble for fat distortion sounds.
Have two with P-90s and one with humbuckers.
Like & like to have both around.
Each is wonderful but overall I could be more satisfied with the P-90s if I could only have them to play through, fits a wider range of my musical choices.
I prefer PAF equipped Les Pauls, and P90 equipped SGs. I'm not sure what you're asking.
