Les Paul and SG pickups?

a few months ago i would have been planted surely in the pete townshend sg p-90 camp... but after playing a few LPs and SGs that really spoke to me, i'll take a flip flop. not to mention how awesome black beauty p90 LPs look.

I have a Paul with PAF's and an SG with P-90's. I'm looking for a paul with P-90s too though, I just love those pickups.

I can't vote! Just sold off my last LP with PAF's. All of my LP's and SG's are either P-90 or P-92 equipped.

I didn't want to count my Gibson SG because it only has one P90 and I thought it would throw the balance of the poll off.

i just feel like the in-your-face-ness of a P90 is better in a snappier, brighter guitar, and I feel like the balls PAF need a complimenting, sustaining guitar.

But I do like P90s in LPs too...:)

Hell, I can't decide. I've had both, and both sound great. P90s on a Les Paul and PAFs in an SG is what I have now. I'll happily play either one.

My SGs are a mixed bag of P-90, P-94, and PAF's. Both my Les Pauls have PAF's. I am gassing for a P-90 equipped Les Paul. Would love a '54RI or a '56 reissue with a Bigsby.

To be honest either would be great but since Christmas I have been obsessively listening to 'Who's Next' so at the moment, it's a Cherry Red P90 loaded SG Special for me !

I thought most of Who's Next was recorded with his Gretsch 6120 Chet Atkins, no? I think Live at Leeds was the quintessential P-90 SG sound.

Assuming I have no other Gibbys, I go with LP w/PAF & SG w/P90s, but I'd like to have one of each with both :)

For purposes of the poll...

I counted my faded DC as an SG w/ P90s
& my LPC w/ SD 59s as LP w/ PAFs

Gotta be close enough.

Honestly?
both instruments should have the humbucker in the bridge and the P90 in the neck. I'll have both.
