Color-matching Cream Parts and Bindings
There have always been slight variations in the color of the cream plastic parts used on Gibson and other guitars. It's not uncommon to see brand new and vintage guitars with bindings, pickup rings, toggle switch rings and pickguards that don't perfectly match in color. We do our best to match all our cream products, but there's no absolute control from batch to batch, or from supplier to supplier.

DO NOT FIT GIBSON!  OUTDATED or FALSE ADVERTISING!

By
(Customer's Reviews)


The description of this product is, "These plastic covers fit Gibson® P-90 pickups in solid-body and semi-hollow body guitars."

This is NOT TRUE.

I'm very frustrated with Stew Mac. They charged my $6 shipping on a $6 item. I'm sure they'll offer to refund my purchase price IF I send the part back on my nickel.

Since their description is inaccurate, I think they should refund me both the cost of the part AND the shipping cost.

They also need to update the description on their website.

Maybe Stew-Mac used to carry a P90 cover that fit Gibson P90's, but they must have changed suppliers, as they definitely don't fit.

Looking more closely at the reviews, I see that the only positive review these have gotten in the past two years was for a Fender P90 style pickup, not for Gibson.

Response from StewMac

Thank you for your feedback on these pickup covers. We are sorry to hear they didn't fit your Gibson P-90's. We have refunded your money for this purchase. We will review the information we have listed and update it accordingly.

Perfect fit

P-90 covers arrived within three business days and were installed that evening. Perfect fit and finish. Really dressed up my Jaguar. Thanks.

Did not fit.

Cover itself was too small. Once I had forced the pickup in, I noticed that the polepice holes did not align. This was with a bog stock Gibson p90 pickup.

Now I have mismatched pu covers waiting for an authentic Gibson part to arrive.

Not a Fit on My Gibson

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I am very disappointed with these covers.
Not even close to a fit with my Gibson Goldtop.
They had to be modified to fit the P90 pickup itself, which was a waste of time because they are not even close to fitting into the cutout on the guitar.
Comparing them to the pair that i pulled out of the guitar, they are much larger.
I spent an hour or more cutting and sanding them to try to get a fit, but to no avail.
Finally gave up, and have ordered a pair of covers from Gibson.
Very frustrating as now the Guitar sits without strings while i await the new order.
Thought i had read many reviews saying they were a perfect fit, but it was not so on the pair i received. Bad both ways regarding fit.

A cover for every coil

I have used a few of these and will continue to. Excellent fit and quality. Slightly more square on the four corners compared to the Genuine Gibson covers, in case anyone was wondering. That does not effect fit, only appearance. These are cheaper also.

These don't fit all P90's

NOT a direct fit

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I bought the soap-bar style covers and they were not a direct fit on either my Kent Armstrong or my Gibson P90s. Also, the covers barely fit into the pickup cavirty of my Gibson Les Paul. I had to squeeze and push to get them in. No other covers needed this. If I was at Stew mac - I would have the molds checked or re-cast.

The ones that send me look perfect and they fit perfectly on the P90 pickup kit

Orangy

The cream p-90 covers are a bit on the orange side, same with the cream HB rings. More orangy than normal and nowhere near an ivory color. Quality is fine, color is odd.

Nice Color but DOES NOT properly fit a Gibson P-90!!

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I ordered one in creme and like the shade very much but when went to size it up to my Gibson p-90, it wouldn't fit. The string spacing is slightly off. I had to drill out the holes slightly larger to make it fit and also I had to trim about 2/32" off the brass plate then it fit perfect. I'm sure these fit your Golden Age p-90's perfectly but that doesn't help the rest of us out.
