Gibson Accessories P-90 Soapbar Pickup

About This Item

First introduced in the early 1950s, Gibson's legendary P90 singlecoil pickup produced a raw powerful tone that helped define the blues and rock and roll in their formative years.

Today, the P90's traditional combination of high output and brilliant tone is still considered a favorite among many top musicians. Known by such familiar nicknames as the "Soapbar" and the "Cobalt," the P90 still cuts through any type of music, all while displaying amazing tonal sensitivity for everything from blues and rock to mellow jazz riffs.

It's perfect as a vintage replacement, and features vintage, braided two-conductor wiring. It's also fully wax potted to eliminate any chance of unwanted microphonic feedback.

    Gibson P-90 Single Coil Pickup with Soapbar Cover specs:
  • Alnico V magnet
  • 2-conductor wiring
  • Height adjustment screws, springs, and wiring diagram included
  • Details: '50 Historic tone, warm and soulful

For bridge or neck postion: 9.1K ohms output, 1.90" polepiece spread

  • Length: 3.23" (82.04mm)

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.

WOW!!!!  Perfect!!!


Verified Buyer

I had this pickup installed into a Gibson Les Paul Special. It nails the P90 sound that I heard in my head. Sounds fantastic!!


Old pickup resurrection


Verified Buyer

The guts of this P90 pickup were just about perfect to replace the dead parts of the original 1950’s pickup in the mid 50’s Harmony guitar which I got from my father years ago. The coil bobbin was a drop in fit to the base plate of the original pickup, and the pickup cover fits almost the same, save for having to enlarge the holes for the pole piece screws in the cover. Now, I have a new pickup in the original pickup exterior, which works great! I cannot attest for it providing an output signal which is the same as the original, since the original was long dead. But, it’s gotta’ be better than what I had before, which was nothing. I also purchased new pots, wiring, and a tone control capacitor, which I’ll wire up soon. Amazed, really, a pickup bought in 2019 would have guts which fit into the base and cover which are nearly 65 years old!
