    I prefer the McCarty pickup: P90s with rod mags instead of the bar and screws.

    As has ben said, all of the above. Depends on my mood. I have guitars with singles, and guitars with humbuckers, but I can pick up any one of them and sound like me.

    To emulate my guitar heros its single coils...

    BUT the sound in my head is humbuckers. Love the sound.

    Humbuckers for me unless I'm looking for some quack or that front single coil sound.

    Houston we have a problem !
    I don't know why anyone would pick just one they are all tools of the trade that's why they make
    so many different hammers use the one the job calls for. And it's a good reason to have more Guitar's.

    ok
    On my four electrics, I have 8 single coils and three humbuckers, so the nod goes to singles for no reason other than I have more, so I play more. I adjust the amp for whatever guitar I'm playing. But I do love playing a single, then kicking to a bridge humbucker for solo--that is my default combo in general.

    Sadly, I've never, ever, owned a P90. Played my friend's '56 Les Paul TV several times and did love the sound. Only P90 I think I've ever played.
