With all the talk lately of P90s and Humbucker sized P90s, I thought I'd sit down and design a real P90 that fits a humbucker route.

What I came up with is a set of my Vintage P90s shaved down to fit a humbucker route.

This set of pickups started out basically as a set of BG Pups Vintage P90 soapbar pickups.
After the coil is wound the bobbin and baseplate is trimmed to fit inside a humbucker cover. The only part used that is not used in my Vintage P90 set is the cover. Though I decided since true P90s use a plastic cover, I would use a plastic humbucker cover. As chrome covers have an effect on tone.


This pickup is great for rock, blues, jazz or anywhere you would want to use a traditional P90 pickup.

This pickup is very versatile and responds to slight height changes and poles screw height changes. Lots of dynamics and attitude with this pup.

This pickup uses alnico magnets, nickel silver baseplate and pole screws and  2 conductor hookup wires. Bridges weigh in at around 10k and necks 7.8k

If you've been searching for a Pure P90 sound in your humbucker routed guitar...Look no further..The Pure 90 is the only choice.



Each clip starts in the neck position then a pause and then the middle position, pause and then the bridge position.
