Our vintage correct recreation of the 1946 Gibson single-coil with all of the midrange grittiness that makes a P90 bridge pickup so special.
The dual alnico 5 bar magnets, and the short, wide bobbins give the P90 its unique tonal character with a powerful midrange and higher output than most other types of single coils. In the bridge position, this pickup has sparkly mids that really give it a gritty, open tone. Chords have a nice harmonic bloom, and single notes are glassy and up-front. This pickup is a drop-in replacement for any traditional Gibson-sized P90 soapbar route. Pair with our Vintage P90 neck for a perfectly matched set.Our Vintage P90 is wound with plain enamel wire, and we add extra mojo by winding them on the same Leesona winder that was used in the 1950s in the old Gibson factory. Comes with vintage braided single-conductor hookup cable and is wax potted for squeal free performance.
