1 Best P90 Pickups for Pop Punk / Alternative
Hey, guys,

I play a Gibson Les Paul Junior DC Tribute with the Gibson P90 Stock Pickup

I want to play pop punk and alternative with this guitar. I have to struggle with the hissing and noise. Therefore I would like to change the pickup. But I like the sound very much and ideally the classic P90 sound will be noticeable.

In my other guitars I have always liked to use Seymour Duncan. That's why I looked here first. My research resulted in the following pickups. Does anyone have experience with these or others? Can anyone recommend pickups to me?

Seymour Duncan P90 STACK https://www.seymourduncan.com/single-product/p90-stack
Seymour Duncan HOT P90 https://www.seymourduncan.com/single-product/hot-p90

Bare Knuckle SUPERMASSIVE 90 P90 https://www.bareknucklepickups.co.uk/pickup/p90/supermassive-90
Bare Knuckle Stockholm 90 https://www.bareknucklepickups.co.uk/pickup/p90/stockholm-90

Many thanks in advance!

P90 is great not only for punk but rock in general.
But for punk, a great guitar is Prestige NYS. It adds a different flavor to it.
I talk about this model - https://www.awkwardsound.com/prestige-guitars-nys-standard-review/
Yeah, it's hollow body but sounds amazing. Great for pop-punk
