Lollar Pickups Staple P-90 was designed to recreate the sound of the original Custom Gibson P-90 staple pickup, but to fit on most soapbar routes with no guitar modifications. Its rectangular-shaped pole piece magnets provide a sound that’s midway between the splashy harmonic-laden Fender tone and the more liquid and woody Gibson P-90 tone, for a punchier attack and more clarity than a typical P-90. Lollar Staple pickups are built with hand-beveled, alnico 5, nonadjustable pole pieces, and 42-gauge coil wire. These made-in-the-US pickups are available in black, cream, and white soapbar covers.
Sheptone’s 6T8 pickups for hollow or semi-hollow body guitar are designed to be transparent and allow the primary wood tones to come through. 6T8 uses a long rough cast Alnico 5 magnet, as opposed to a short machined magnet to help give it gritty growl and clear, balanced tone. Wound with #42 poly wire on butyrate bobbins, the neck pickup averages 7.4k DC resistance and bridge pickup averages 7.8k DC resistance.
