The 1956 Hot P90 offers more mid range power than a traditional P90 for a thicker feel and response. Perfect for the guitarist who is looking for a little more power from their P90. The top end dynamics are still present but there is definitely more drive present when compared to a normal vintage P90.

Made with vintage enamel wire, you can expect warmth and extreme luscious tone. The pickup delivers vibrancy, warmth and a nice clean dynamic that you would expect from a vintage hand crafted pickup. Great for thick lead tone – especially at bridge.

    Got this for an LP Jr build. Don’t have a big budget, so I was surprised to come across these pickups, hand-built for a price I could actually afford! After getting everything put together and playing it for about a week now, I’m amazed at the quality of this pickup. It’s a P-90 hot with the A2 magnet. I got the neck pickup, cause I wanted something in the 8.5k range. This thing screams! In a good way…great string definition, cleans up really nice, and gets good tone with the tone control rolled down. This is now my “go to” guitar, and I plan on replacing the humbuckers in a couple of Les Pauls, and probably the single coils in my Strat copy with Planet Tone pickups. Many thanks for great pickups at fantastic prices!

    My Epiphone Coronet Tamio Okuda model p-90 was so weak. I wanted to have more fat but with sastained tune. This alnico ll hot 90 bridge is what I was looking for.
