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.

P-90 cover

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I've installed these on several custom builds with no real problems. Very minor pickup cavity tweaking was necessary in the corner radii but is to be expected when using templates from a different source. We're talking a few hundreths of an inch. Hence the 4/5 instead of 5/5 rating. The pic is the client's guitar they went in and there was absolutely no slop with the fit. I used these with Bill Lawrence, Kent Armstrong and other P-90 pups but not Gibson's.

Does not fit Gibson P90 pickups

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I bought these black covers to replace the creme covers on a Les Paul. Some reviews I read said they would fit, others said they wouldn't. Well, they do not. The pole piece spacing is off, and the corners have a smaller radius than the Gibson covers, so they would not fit the routed cavities in the guitar body. It was close, but I didn't want to change the guitar or sand down the corners of the covers. I should have checked with Stew Mac before ordering.

My reason for ordering P90 Pickup covers

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I have 16 guitars (12 are electric), and I wanted to replace and install P90 soap-bar pickups on 2 of them, but didn't know if I had the correct clearance for them to fit. No better way to see if they would fit is buy just the covers for just three bucka each and could even use them later. One I could use and one that needed a little more clearance from the strings. In the past, StewMac has answered correctly questions about certain pick-ups by e-mail to me. I give them a plus in everything.

My Parson Street P-90s came with black covers so I got cream-colored ones to match my guitar. Classy look!

P90 cover

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Great....a dogear cover! I ordered them to see if they covered a larger than intended P90 rout on a guitar I was building, a Les Paul Double cut from Precision.I wanted no gaps between wood and pick-up casing. Didn't like the look of them, because looked too 'added as an afterthought'

The cover was too high for use as a neck pick-up, ideal for the neck position. I like to mount P90's on a hard rubber pad, instead of suspending them in the Dogear mount. Each to his own sound. However, I am using them on my lap steel project, makes them 'ring' a bit more. Great covers though. Here's what I replaced them with......

Faithful reproductions

By
(Customer's Reviews)


These covers are exact reproductions in terms of dimensions and color of vintage Gibson P-90's. They fit every P-90 that I have that conforms to vintage Gibson 50 mm polepiece spacing. This includes an Epiphone reissue LP goldtop, contrary to the previous reviewer.

Of course they are not going to fit every aftermarket pickup out there, especially cheapo imports with wonky dimensions. Measure your E to E spacing to make sure.
