P90, soapbar ’52/’54, set, black


Copied from my personal ’52/’54 Les Paul conversion this lower output reproduction showcases the best P90 pickups of early 50’s era Kalamazoo P90’s. A clear detailed neck pickup and a bridge with both bite and a deep low end give this set agility and nuance with both clean and dirty tones that highlights the versatility of the vintage P90 pickups design.
