                Best Guitars With P90 Configuration in 2023

                Here you'll find the best guitars with P90 configuration. These pickups are, in fact, single-coil pickups, although they look like humbuckers. They have more output than single coils, but less than Humbuckers. And the same thing could be said about their tone; they're not as warm as humbuckers but not as bright as single coils. This gives a lot of versatility to P90s, as they can be used for many different genres, but it's used more often by players looking for a vintage tone.

                Like any other single-pickup-guitar, it should have good sustain since there will be less interference with the vibration of the strings because fewer pickups means less magnetic interference. However, you're stuck to one tone option, unless you use effect pedals.

                Out of the more than 2000 guitars in our database, these are the best ones with these features, according to our algorithm. You can use our filters to the left to see only the exact types of guitar you want. You can also click on "Compare" to get a deep spec comparison between two guitars of your choice. This list is updated daily automatically as we add new guitars to our database. We'll show you first the best ones according to our automated scoring system, which takes into account dozens of parameters to determine the build quality, playability, pickups quality, value for money and more.
