P 90 Pickup (pair)

"The P 90 pickup first came on the scene in 1946 and was the premier pickup in the Gibson line until the inception of the Humbucker in 1956. The P 90 may have been relegated to service in more budget style guitars after this point, but that fact did not prevent it from providing some of the most significant and unforgettable guitar tones throughout the history of contemporary music. In it’s various configurations it found service in Les Paul’s, SG’s and most important the Epiphone Casino. The Jimmy Wallace Vintage P 90 pickups are hand- crafted in the “Soap Bar’ configuration, making them interchangeable with a multitude of Gibson and other similar guitar stock pickups. They have the familiar raw power and unbridled mid-range presence that has worked so well in modern music. They are excellent replacement s for all “Soap Bar” P 90 equipped guitars including the early Jazz guitars that their vintage counterparts brought to life. Construction Features include:
