Vintage Core™ short leg, tinned Brass baseplates to fit any humbucker routed guitar. Just like vintage P90’s we tooled and stamped Pro-90 baseplates with same dimple magnet mounting method and tinned cartridge brass material. Preserving the mechanical and inductance properties of 50’s era P90 baseplates. We even went the extra mile to preserve the external vintage braided wire/ground lug configuration of the vintage P-90 design. By doing so we freed up space for full sized long Alnico magnets. One more step that maintains the magnet and inductance profile of the vintage design. Plus it just looks cool!
If you are among the truly adventurous the Pro-90 also comes in an Alnico 5 rod magnet configuration. Many of the very earliest P90’s were made with rod magnets. What is the tone like? Think P90 but BIGGER. USA made vintage formulation Alnico 5 rods deliver a big single coil P90 sound that is perfect if you are looking for a cross between a P90 and Jazzmaster pickup.
