Gibson Original P90 Soapbar Pickup

Predating the famous humbucker, the Gibson P90 pickup can be found in models like the Les Paul Junior, Les Paul Special, and the Epiphone Casino.

First introduced in the early 1950s, Gibson's legendary P-90 single coil pickup produced a raw powerful tone that helped define the blues and rock and roll in their formative years. Today, the P-90's traditional combination of high output and brilliant tone is still considered a favorite among many top musicians.

Known by the familiar nickname, the "Soapbar," the P-90 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.
