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.

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.

NOT a direct fit

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 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!!

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.

P-90 cover

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

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

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.
