What Gibsons have P90s?

Popular guitars that use or have the option of using P-90s are the Gibson SG, Gibson Les Paul, Ernie Ball Axis series and the Epiphone Casino.

What genre are P90s good for?

P90 pickups are good for a range of different styles of music, because they have a versatile tone. They’re well suited to blues, country and rock. The only style that they aren’t usually as well suited to, is metal. This is because you can get some humming when you crank up the gain, as they only have one coil.

Do any Fender guitars have P90s?

Are P90s good for high gain?

P90 pickups have a tendency to hum with high gain settings, so if you crank the gain (or distortion) you will get plenty of hum and a lot of feedback. You can address this with a compressor but most just use humbuckers instead – that’s what they were designed for: to handle high gain signals with little to no humming.

Fender Jazzmaster pickups are not P90 pickups. While they look similar at a glance, they are a bit different physically and sonically as well.

Are P-90s good for metal?

Here’s the short answer: You CAN play metal with P90 pickups. However, they are NOT the best option for most sub-genres. P90s lack the low end and definition of humbuckers and have a muddier sound, although this, paired with their top-end clarity could be used in some styles.

Are jazzmasters noisy?

Noise levels on a Jazzmaster are higher than on a Strat pickup due to its larger surface area. You can expect more 60 cycle hum than a typical Fender (more of a P90 level hum), but Jazzmasters were always RWRP sets, which reduced the hum when the pickups were used together.
