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.

Lead Wire Vintage Braided
Bridge Output 7.5k
Neck Output 7.1k

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.

A great lead P90 sound for a bridge position pickup, sweet warmth in the neck. Single conductor, braided shield lead wire. Available in black or cream P90 pickup covers, dog-ear or soapbar.

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.

Fat, Bright, Attacking True Single Coil Tone

Dogear or Soapbar

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

 

Great stuff. Thanks so much!! They’re a massive improvement! I’m not generally a P90 guy, but they sound fantastic. That syrupy Another Brick in the Wall solo tone is just right there.. :D
Mike Riddle
Pickups fitted and they sound fantastic
Peter Aviziurs
The P90 sized Humbuckers sound beautiful! Many thanks
Pete Fletcher
Earthquake again? No! Your Humbucker sized P90 pickup shakes this house, Thanks.
aki4cris from eBay
Just great pickups. Brought my Epiphone Goldtop to life. Thanks.
Simon Harris
Thanks for the custom P90s, they sound fantastic
Glenn Fowler
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.
