Vintage Spec Replacement P90 Pickup based on the original early '50s design now in a choice of magnet options and available in either Dogear or Soapbar style Covers
Slightly lower output than the '57 and with a little less attack it has increased clarity & definition. This is my brighter P90 similar to the old pickups of the early '50s. Rounder in sound than a traditional Strat or Tele single coil with that fatter, grittier, warmer P90 voice part way between a single-coil and humbucker the Classic '53 P90 pickup won't drive an amp as much as the '57 P90, staying cleaner sounding.
The Alnico 2 being a slightly weaker magnet than the 4 or 5, helps to give an overall warmer, more vintage style voice - Alnico 3 sweeter still. A great P90 pickup for those jazzier sounds where warmth, sweetness and string definition are all balanced. The stonger Alnico 5 magnets help to give a brighter attack with a little more punch.
Single conductor, braided shield lead wire. Available in Soapbar or Dogear style.
