Is there an SG with P-90's and trapezoid inlays?

You could get a SG Standard and replace the pickups and pickguard. You may need to have the pickup cavities routed to fit the P90's but as it will have a large guard this won't be a problem.

It would certainly would be a unique looking guitar, very cool idea.

I put a pair of Duncan Phat Cats in an SG and lived happily ever after.

No fuss, no muss, no sawdust..........just sweet alnico P90 tone.

I don't think there ever was a regular production model with trapezoid inlays and p90's. The Jr's, classics and specials have dots. The supreme has split diamonds.

I did a quick search and found a custom shop 61 re-issue with P90's. If you are a lefty it may be just what you are looking for. I found it listed on Gbase.com.

As far as I know, there is no trapeze inlay with P90 in a SG.Never was.
In 2002 I think, a SG classic was discontinued (dots and P90) as an old special SG.
You can sure get a regular SG and put P90's in it....it will sound the same, look the same and you will be a Happy owner!
Good luck!

Don’t know about trapezoid, but back in 1970 there was at least one SG Standard with split parallelogram inlays in the Netherlands.
