We can’t take our eyes off the Wizard, and the same goes for our fingers. With a whopping 17-inch width, this model is built for comfort, not speed, with a lovely, lazy feel to the neck and fretboard that leaves you wringing out vibrato-heavy notes with your eyes closed. It feels like playing an instrument from a bygone era.
Following an afternoon of humbucker action, the P90s stood out from the pack. While not as thick as the competition, they’ve got grit, attitude and character, and the lack of a dedicated pickup selector is more than compensated with three volume controls, letting you dial up a bespoke tone, and making this model perfect for anything from blues to melodic rock.
Peerless? We’re not arguing.
Pros: Genuine vibe, versatile P90 tone.
Cons: Most expensive in the test.
