Handwound P90 Pickups

Vintage, Modern & Custom Replacement P90 Pickups - Made in Manchester

From the classic vintage tones to fatter, grittier outputs all my replacement P90 Pickups are handwound here in my workshop in Manchester, UK

I've tried to create replacement P90 pickups & sets that chime with certain tones & periods in music but often once you place an order, I'll discuss how we can make the pickup custom to you - If that means over/underwinding a little, different outputs etc etc then no problem, it can be done - they're your pickups, for your guitar.

Custom Handwound Replacement P90 Pickups from The Creamery.

Custom Handwound Replacement Vintage & Modern P90 Pickups

Larger and richer than standard single coils, my replacement P90 Soapbar, Dogear & Casino Replacement pickups are based on both vintage & modern designs. With moulded cream, white or black covers, or correct chrome or nickel plated metal Casino covers, you'll find replacement P90 pickups to suit your tone.

I don't have pickups all boxed up ready to send out, each order is custom made so I can tailor the specifications to suit your guitar, tone or style of playing.

I also make a couple of P90 Sized Humbucker designs too.

If you're after a custom set of replacement P90 pickups, just get in touch with the kind of voice/tone/output you're after and we can take it from there.

Bridge Output 7.5k

Based on the Early '50s P90

Dogear or Soapbar

A lower vintage output, less attacking pickup but with a wide dynamic range. This is my brighter P90 similar to those old pickups of the early '50s. Fatter in tone than a single coil. Still with that fat P90 sound, great for warm clean tones part way between a single-coil and humbucker the Classic '53 P90 pickup won't drive an amp as much as my Classic '57 P90. The Alnico 2 being a slightly weaker magnet than the 4 or 5, gives a warmer, more vintage style tone. A great P90 pickup for those jazzier sounds. Alnico 4 is a little clearer than the Alnico 2 but ever so slightly warmer than the Alnico 5. The Alnico 5 magnets give a great bright P90 single-coil attack.

Custom Designed P90 Dogear Bridge

Three types of custom magnets for crunchy, crisp, clear & defined lower strings - sweeter, creamier, milkier higher strings for a richer sound. Custom designed with Bernard Sumner of Joy Division / New Order.

We worked on the design of this pickup together when he wanted something edgier from the Gibson LP Jnr Double Cutaway he picked up. He has a number of vintage guitars (and old Vox amps) but wanted something different for the new live dates and recording. We spent time playing his old original Gibson ES 330 that just sounded perfect, just a really sweet yet gritty sound that really snarled when pushed. It has Dogear P90s but they just had something more than the standard P90 sound but the two issues he had where, it had just been too precious to take out on tour for a number of years and with it having single coil P90s, it hummed, both live and in the studio with all the synths & equipment. In comparison, his Gibson SG and the early 90s LP Jnr he picked up just sounded a little sterile in comparison.

Clearer, more defined E, A & D strings - Creamier, Warmer G, B & E strings

So the task was not to recreate the sound of the ES 330 but take its characteristics and make a similar Dogear P90 size pickup to fit the new LP Jnr that kept the colour and edge to the sound but with clearer, more defined and ‘punkier' lower E, A & D strings whilst somehow being warmer, creamier & milkier on the higher G, B & E strings. So rather than try and make some kind of hum-cancelling P90 we decided to just start again from scratch and make a new design of pickup to balance these two ideas, clearer, more defined & crunchier E, A & D strings whilst somehow being able to roll off the treble slightly on the higher G, B & E strings for less of a single coil sound and more towards the richer, fuller humbucker sound. To get the crisper, crunchier lower notes in a humbucker often means less coil and a lower output which can give the higher strings more treble - the task was to reconcile these two ideas, clear, crunchier lower strings with warmer highs with a higher output to push the amp a little more.

This is where the unique design came about after a few different prototypes - Individual sets of custom made & sized threaded rod magnets of opposing polarity and different strengths underneath the lower E, A & D strings with a double pole humbucker design underneath the G, B & E strings, again with custom made magnets hidden away underneath the offset coils for these strings. Outputwise, we wanted it to really push his naturally brighter vintage VOX AC30 amps for a really attacking, edgier sound.

Road Testing on Tour

He took the final prototype out on tour and chose to showcase the new design live onstage as they played their first new material in years at the Lollapalooza festival (I was streaming it live)

After the gigs, and with the pickup performing well onstage he asked me to make a bridge & neck humbucker sized set to the same spec for his ’62 SG.

He took these back out on the road and gave them a good road test on the short US tour later that month and his final review was, "Back home now and gave the pickups a good trial on tour. Verdict fantastic! Improved both my guitars. The humbuckers have bags of tone and character! The old Gibson ones sound cold and neutral in comparison. Totally pleased. You’ve sure done something right and well impressed the band, me and the crew! I’ve been bigging you up to everyone!"

A great replacement humbucker for a standard P90 Dogear Bridge and if you'd like a fatter, crunchier style replacement hum-cancelling pickup for your Les Paul Jnr Guitar.

Magnet Options

The magnets under the lower E, A & D strings are custom sized, custom made threaded Alnico 5  whereas the lower G, B & E strings can have either Alnico 2 or the stronger Alnico 5 - Alnico 2, being a little weaker 'holds' the strings a little less, allowing them to vibrate a little more, adding a little more warmth to the overall sound whereas Alnico 5, being that bit stronger, 'holds' the strings a little more for a little brighter attack & focus.

The Wide Range sound in a standard/regular P90 Dogear size

Classic fat "Doubled Up" single coil tones - Great clarity and string definition with a bright chime & warmth. Individual threaded pole magnets charged to around 2/3rds capacity allow you to dial in each string. A warmer mid-range than standard single coils and with a higher output, they're great for breaking up an amp. With a great fat bridge tone sounding akin to a "doubled-up" Tele and a neck with a warm, sweet brightness, these Wide Range / Thinline Humbucker style pickups are a great if you're looking for something more to replace a standard P90 Dogear.

Slightly brighter with a tighter focus that my full-size Classic '71 Wide Range / Thinline Humbucker repros due to the slightly narrower coil and slightly lower output.

Available with either Vintage Braided or 4-Way wiring, the cover options are black or cream covers and I can also age them a little.

A great versatile replacement Wide Range Humbucker Pickup for your Les Paul Junior.

PLEASE NOTE: These pickups are a direct drop-in to fit a standard regular P90 Dogear Size and unlike a number of other similar styled pickups which are essentially a standard humbucker with bar magnet, these are true to the spirit of the old Seth Lover Wide Range / Thinline humbuckers with threaded magnets and ferrous internal reflector plate.

Dual Blade Humbucker in a standard P90 Soapbar or Dogear Size

Crunchier Firebird Style P90 Sized Humbucker Pickup

A dual blade magnet humbucker pickup inside a P90 that requires no modifications to your guitar at all. My P90 sized Humbuckers even look like a P90 - Once installed, no-one will spot the difference until you plug in and play.

Great string definition & clarity due to the dual blade magnets. More of a crunchy "Doubled up" hum-cancelling tone than the fat single coil voice of my classic P90, these new P90 sized dual blade Humbucker Pickups give a rich, crunchy, bright & biting attack very similar to a classic Firebird Sound.

All the depth of a humbucker with the sparkle of a single coil. The two 43awg coils help give a slightly warmer mid-range which balances the brighter frequencies of this versatile design.

I use the thinner 43AWG coil wire on this design which means the actual perceived volume will be lower than the high output reading would suggest, namely around 9k Bridge & 8k Neck respectively. There are a few misconceptions about using thinner gauge wire to achieve a higher output and I'm currently writing a blog post about it.

P90 Sized 'Fat' Humbucker - Soapbar

A bar magnet style humbucker pickup inside a P90 that requires no modifications to your guitar at all. Its essentially the standard humbucker design of two coils with bar magnet and steel pole screws. The slight difference, other than the size & look, is that I use a series of 5 magnets designed to fit around the 2 central fixing screws. I do this to make the pickup a completely direct drop-in replacement.

Unlike other P90-sized PAF style humbuckers, there's no need to drill new mounting holes into the body of your guitar with mine. No modifications necessary to your guitar.

More of a warmer, classic humbucker tone than my 12-pole design, slightly brighter and more focused as I allow both rows of pole screws through the custom made covers.

I use the thinner 43AWG coil wire on this design which means the actual perceived volume will be lower than the high output would suggest, namely around 8.8k Bridge & 7.8k Neck respectively - The slightly higher output compensates for the slightly taller, thinner coils.

P90 Sized Fat Bridge or Neck Humbucker - Designed for P90 Dogear

More of a warmer, PAF style P90 Dogear sized Bridge or Neck Position Humbucker

A bar magnet PAF style humbucker pickup inside a P90 Dogear that requires no modifications to your guitar at all. Its essentially the standard humbucker design of two coils with bar magnet and steel pole and/or screws. A completely direct drop-in replacement with your choice of Alnico 2, 3, 4 or 5 magnets.

Warmer, classic humbucker tones with the option of more traditional 6 visible pole screws and hidden steel slugs under the cover or 12 visible pole screws. P90 Dogear covers, although made of plastic, are quite thick meaning the hidden steel slugs are just that little bit further away from the strings whereas the full set adjustable pole screw option means all 12 pole screws can be adjusted to suit your neck radius or to dial in individual strings for emphasis. I offer both these options as some customers prefer the more vintage humbucker 'look' whereas others want more clarity & definition.

A great replacement humbucker for standard P90 Dogear Pickups and if you'd like a PAF style replacement humbucker for your Les Paul Jnr Guitar.

Available in three outputs, a brighter, low-output version of 7.5k Bridge & 7.1k Neck, a mid-output set of 8.4k Bridge & 7.5k Neck and a fatter, hotter 12.0k Bridge & 9.2k Neck. Similar in appearance and the exact same size as a standard P90, the Sonic-Six P90 pickup has individual threaded magnets to keep more tonal clarity & string definition. The lower & medium output version use specific 42AWG coil wire to give a fatter single coil but with more brightness and less warmth than a standard P90. The higher output version uses specific 43AWG coil wire to balance output whist still keeping clarity & that fat brightness and attacking single-coil tone.

I've spent a lot on these, changing the size of the Alnico 5 threaded magnets and bobbin size a number of times to get these right. If you're after that bright, fat twang tone from a standard P90 size pickup then the Creamery Sonic-Six pickups may be the ones for you.

Available as a Soapbar style in Aged White (cream), black or chrome-plated covers or as a Dogear style in Aged White (Cream) or Black covers. Vintage braided wire.

Reviews of my Handwound P90 Pickups

Its great when I get positive feedback from customers, and good reviews & word-of-mouth really help the custom shop maker so with this in mind, I've created this page of reviews.

All the comments below were either emailed to me or posted to my Twitter or Facebook pages.

Have a read through what others are saying about my replacement P90 Pickups and get in touch if you'd like me to custom make some pickups for you. I don't have pickups all boxed up ready to send out, each order is custom made which means I can modify the specifications to suit you, your playing and your guitar.

 



Shall be breaking it in tonight at the Olympic Stadium Barcelona... I gave it a quick blast during soundcheck through Matts rig and both me and Jason (Matts tech) agreed it sounded pretty damn good…

Loving the sound of the pickup combinations..definitely doing all the things I hoped and more...have a feeling its going to see a lot of use in the studio as well as live...

The Casino is sounding amazing through the tremolux! It's a beast thanks to you. Couldn't be happier with the sound Jaime. Guitars on the new record are a great ad for your work sir - Edwyn and Seb LOVED the sounds!!

Fancy a wee plug on the sleeve??

I installed the pickups on friday and they sound great. the sound is excellent with plenty of definition.These are just the pickups i was looking for. Thanks again

Hi Jaime, Just got my Lp Jr back from the tech who installed the p90 and had a jam session with a full band last night with it - absolutely delighted with the tone and clarity. Was just the sort of sound I was after, Thanks a million for everything! Will be in touch in the future as i have my eye on a mustang/jag/jazzy which I’m sure i won’t be happy with the stock pickups in :p Thanks again Jaime

Sarah Dempsey - Custom '13 Dogear Bridge


Installed your pickup on Friday and noticed an immediate improvement. Did an A/B with my historic doublecut junior and they are very close. Yours seems a little brighter with better definition on the bass end, and overall makes a great improvement to the ‘57. Gigged it on Saturday and was complemented on my sound so all is good. Thanks.

Stuart Hurley - ’57 P90 Dogear


I went to take the guitar back this morning from the luthier, and what can I say? They sound great, are awesome! Thanks, thanks a lot!

Miguel Gallego - Classic ’61 Casino Set


Hi Jaime. Just wanted to say thank you. Pick ups arrived yesterday morning (saturday), I fitted them straight away and as your reputation was so good , I took a chance and actually gigged with them last night with no back up whatsoever.

All I can say is AWESOME, So clear and just improved the sound 500 percent. Cheers mate, I will spread the word...

Nick Foti - Classic ’61 Casino Set


I'm replying to let you know that the new p90 humbuckers you made finally got fitted, The Pickups are great!

I had a few issues with the guitar I was installing them into, I wanted to get that fixed at the same time so it took a while to get the guitar back. They sound wonderful, great clarity and Chime but with a nice fuller humbuckers sound which is nice and warm. I had the guitar coil split so I could take full advantage of all the possible sounds available through the pickups, really great!

Martin Macrae - P90 Sized Humbucker Set


I'm thrilled with the P-90 sized humbucker you made for me

Martin Sullivan - P90 Sized Humbucker

Krysalan Hawk - Strat-90 Set


Hi Jaime, Just put it in today and it sounds KILLER!!!!

Very articulate and clear, even with heavy overdrive. It can get nasty as hell, but does the clean chime thing very nicely as well.

I'm tempted to rip the HB's out of my SG... You make an awesome product my friend!!!!

Gary Porter - Hum-90 Bridge


Hiya Jaime, I just got my guitars back a couple of days ago with the new pickups. They're a MASSIVE improvement in every way! Both sets are fuller, louder and more responsive, just a great set of pickups!

Kieran McGee - Jag-90 Set


Hi Jaime, I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you for the P90 Sized Fat Humbucker I just received.

I got it as a replacement for a slightly wild p90 that came in the bridge of my baritone, the pickup fitted in the space left by the old pickup perfectly and I now have that lovely tight and focused sound I was after!

Thanks once again and keep up the good work,

Matt Goss - P90 Sized Fat Humbucker


Dear Jaime, I have got my Custom Shop 50s Gold Top back from Charlie Chandler, with the two pick ups you made, installed. They sound better than I imagined possible, the PAF is fantastic and the p90 balances with it beautifully, together they sound great too. I love closely voiced pick ups and this pair are subtly different and switching from neck to bridge or back the change in extremely useful authentic tone is pure magic. Thank you very much, you have created a masterpiece! All the Best David.

David Chesterman - Creamery '59 Bridge & calibrated Hum-90 Neck


Just to let you know I got the pickups fitted, eventually, yesterday. I have a full rehearsal tonight, but even with 5 mins at home I can tell that these pups are gems!! They'll be staying in the guitar for sure.

BTW, I had a local guys fit them for me, Robert van der Linde, who was RAVING about your pickups! I don't know of you know him, but he's been a guitar builder in the past (Cadillac Guitars) and he' starting up again, saying he will use your pickups.

Peter Graham - P90 Sized Humbucker Set


I bought a set of P90s from you a couple of months ago, unfortunately my guitar repairman has been quite ill so it has taken a while to get them fitted. They are now fitted. They have transformed the guitar and it sounds mighty! If I upgrade anything else in the future, you'll be my first port of call.

Frank Robinson - Hum-90 Set


Man, what I have to say is: what a incredible sound!!! I do not know what kind of magic you did but all I know it sounded great! Well worth the wait. Thank You so much.

Ruy Sarno - Classic ’61 Casino Set


The '61 Casino PU's are absolutely amazing

Mik Thybo - Classic '61 Casino Set


You rock! My P90 made me not looking further, it's amazing!

Micke Gustavsson - Classic '57 P90 Bridge


Dear Jaime, First of all, these pups ROCK!! I love them, they have delivered more than I expected. I really like the no 2 and 4 positions for cleans/dirty cleans, and 1,3 and 5 for higher gain settings.

Pater Sundstrom - Strat-90 Set


Hi Jamie. Just put the pickups in my casino. Wow man! Great job. Dynamics are great, the bridge has got evil bite!! Way cool!

Mik Thybo - Classic '61 Casino Set


I can tell you that they sound magnificent!

They really retain the character of an normal single coil, but fatter. In an ideal world I would perhaps want even more of the P90, but the Strat-90s still gives me the "strattyness" a P90 would not. So basically they are something in between a P90 and a strat single coil, and that was just what I was looking for. The 2 and 4 positions sound as the should, but I find that I use the bridge and the neck the most. They have that beefier sound that I would more expect from a P90. I haven't been able to use the bridge before in this guitar with high gain, so I very happy with the sound. I did retain the 250k pots, and I felt that was a good choice, 500k would have been too bright.

Peter Sundstrom - Strat-90 Set


Put them in yesterday, guitar needed to settle after being stripped down and having a different brand of strings on. Sounded pretty good last night, they sounded superb today.

Most noticeably the dynamics of them, play gently with your fingers and they are totally clean, give t!hem some stick with a thick plectrum and they roar without changing any amp settings.

Very clear sounding, just what I wanted. I can now do clean blues to classic rock just by altering my picking, amazing. For me they are the perfect balance between a Strat single coil and a humbucker.

Nick Smith - Hum-90 Set


Hi jaime, I got it last thursday, had a couple of rehearsals and i can say I’m really satisfied with it. the sound is sharp, punchy, convex, bright enough and chimey enough, and very responsive to dynamics of strumming

Hi Jaime, I have just re-installed the new pups (got the hot and ground mixed up). Only had 5 minutes to run them through the amp but from that 5 minutes I can say they have completed my SG. Your pups match the sound in my head and for that I thank you. I can't wait to get back later to run them through the entire rig and see what sounds I can get.

Hum-90 Bridge & Domino Neck - Mark Davies


Hi Jamie, I put the p90 in and it sounds great!

Ray Russell - Strat-90 Bridge


The humbucker is a vast improvement on the stock one, it has clarity and attack without being too harsh, and when split gives a fantastic Tele bridge pick up tone.

The P90 mixes well with the humbucker, and has that great smooth P90 sound. Altogether I'm damn happy with them.

Simon Smith - 12-Pole Wide Range Humbucker & Calibrated P90 Neck


thanks for the pickups. I received them yesterday and installed them today. They sound awesome. Compared to my 'Crafted in Japan' ones they sound a lot fuller.

Florian Weinhart - Jazzmaster P90 Pickup Set


I got the pickup today and I got it on my 1960 TV Junior right away and it was as brilliant as I thought. Nice body and clarity. Nice response to turning down on the guitar volume pot.

Micke Gustavsson - Classic '57 P90 Bridge


Hi Jaime, After some band inactivity thru the Summer months I have finally started to use your sublimely voiced 1957 chrome dogear P90's you made for my 1997 Korean Epi Casino.

The tonality is inspired and these little works of art have made this cheap guitar really shine.

I play 50's style vintage blues and have a bunch of great old 50's guitars that are now taking a back seat, as my nitro-fueled Casino has such a range of warm jump sounds melded with some real gnarly bridge tones that it's become my current go-to for studio and gigs.

Just wanted to say thanks for the perfect pair! I am so happy with these '57's and would certainly highly recommend The Creamery to anyone. It's great to support a UK builder too. Very best mate!

Ade Miller - ’57 P90 Dogear Set


Hey Jaime - Pickups sound great! Definitely gives me a different palette of sounds compared tomy my previous set up! Thanks again!

Just wanted to say thanks for the work done on this fantastic neck P90. The Alnico 4 & the low vintage wind matches perfectly with the TV jones Classic in the bridge. I've tried a few P90's in the guitar and this is one that finally gives it the voice it deserves. Plummy / flutey on its own and THE perfect rhythm sound when mixed with the humbucker, seriously couldn't be happier with it.
