I play a heavily modified P. I enjoy the "solo" tone I've gotten from it.
Caveat: I've replace the neck with a warmoth with jumbo stainless frets, and the bridge with a badass II.
I've taken out the tone knob altogether and go volume straight to output. I use 500k pots. I've dropped the action way low so that when I go gentle, its clear as a bell, but when I dig in I get fret noise kinda like a pick. I prefer stainless roundwounds.
My tonal range with my setup is pretty wide, but you have to make alterations in accordance with your own playing style.
Billy Sheehan solos like crazy, and when he does, its usually from his split P.
