P-90 Pickups:

’54/’56 SB MXV: Neck 7.6K/Long A4 - Bridge 8,1K/Long A4

Copied from two vintage '56 Les Paul Soap Bar P90 pickups sets the '55/'56-SB set represents a transition in both Les Paul and P90 soap bar specifications. Long A2 neck magnets and long A4 bridge magnets as per the vintage reference pickups were an apparent attempt to balance out neck and bridge tones from the factory. The result is a rich, dark neck tone with a rich swell above the 12th fret and a bridge rich in harmonics.

7.6K Neck 8.1K Bridge, long A2 magnets (Neck), A4 (Bridge), charged to vintage levels. Choose Butyrate Bone, Cream or Black MXV reproduction covers aged or unaged.

Pro 90: Neck 7.6K/Long A3 - Bridge 8.2K/Long A4

You asked for it and we did it! Finally a humbucker sized that preserves the TONE and FEEL of a vintage P-90. In the tradition of ThroBak Maximum vintage P.A.F. reproduction pickups and P-90 reproduction pickups, the ThroBak PRO-90, humbucker sized P90, duplicates the construction, materials, and growl of a vintage P90 pickup by using ThroBak’s proprietary Vintage Core™ specifications. The ThroBak PRO-90 brings a new level of authentic tone and feel to players seeking 50’s P-90 growl making these the best humbucker sized P90 in their class. 100% USA made.

Vintage Core™ short leg, tinned Brass baseplates to fit any humbucker routed guitar. Just like vintage P90's we tooled and stamped Pro-90 baseplates with same dimple magnet mounting method and tinned cartridge brass material. Preserving the mechanical and inductance properties of 50's era P90 baseplates. We even went the extra mile to preserve the external vintage braided wire/ground lug configuration of the vintage P-90 design. By doing so we freed up space for full sized long Alnico magnets. One more step that maintains the magnet and inductance profile of the vintage design. Plus it just looks cool!

If you are among the truly adventurous the Pro-90 also comes in an Alnico 5 rod magnet configuration. Many of the very earliest P90's were made with rod magnets. What is the tone like? Think P90 but BIGGER. USA made vintage formulation Alnico 5 rods deliver a big single coil P90 sound that is perfect if you are looking for a cross between a P90 and Jazzmaster pickup.

7.6K Neck 8.2K Bridge, USA Made long A3 magnets (Neck), A4 (Bridge), (Alnico 5 rod magnets for rod magnet version) charged to vintage levels.
