The classic raw single-coil sound!
Find your tone! New sets and hum canceling options
Golden Age P-90 models carry on the raw sound of early rock and electric blues. We listened to your feedback and now offer sets and
Gibson's beloved vintage single-coils were the workingman's pickups, versatile for practically any playing style. Our Golden Age P-90s proudly carry on the tradition, with authentic components that faithfully deliver the classic bright tone.
We offer two styles of Golden Age P-90s to choose from
Our '50s-style Parsons Street™ model is named for the famous Kalamazoo street where the original P-90 was born. It features a black plastic bobbin with old-style enameled unpotted coil wire for the original slightly grittier sound, and is wound to 8.0K ohms.
We also offer a Modern version with a black fiber flatwork bobbin, wound to 8.7K ohms with wax-potted poly-coated wire for a smoother sound. The flatwork look is sometimes preferred for installations with the covers removed.
By player request—all the tone and no hum!
We've just introduced new versions of each model that are reverse wound/reverse polarity (RWRP). Put this pickup in either the neck or bridge position for hum cancellation in the middle position. Modern or vintage style, it's your choice!
New! Sets now available
We now offer sets to give your guitar complete P-90 growl! Available in Parsons Street™ and Modern sets, both are available as RWRP (hum canceling) or Original (not hum-canceling). Choose which tone you like best.
