P90 Pickups were first produced by Gibson in 1946 to replace their original Charlie Christian pickup. Designed as a single coil but with a wider & shorter chassis, P-90 pickups had a higher number of coil winds. Producing a louder, thicker, and darker tone compared to single coils of the time.
P90s offer the power and bite of a humbucker, but with the character and clarity of single coil pickups. Available as a soapbar, dogear or humbucker casings. Although as a single coil a vintage P90 will have a hum, you can choose from our hum-cancelling P90s for a noise free experience.
A P-90 Pickup will give you a warmer, cleaner tone than that of a single coil. Along with a more “vintage” sound compared to humbuckers. And if you are looking for that more old-school tone. We really think you can’t go past the P90s.
