Humbucker-sized '54 P90

Montys Humbucker-sized '54 P90 provides all the tone of an authentic vintage P90 in a humbucker sized casing, perfect for retrofitting into humbucker guitars or incorporating into custom builds

Like its more traditionally proportioned sibling, Monty's humbucker-sized '54 P90 is (at least internally) a recreation of a vintage P90, modelled on the two best P90s Monty's have ever seen, one from a 1954 Gibson Les Paul and the other from a mid-60s Epiphone Century.

The thing that really struck Monty's about these vintage Gibson P90s (60s Epiphones absolutely did have real Gibson P90s) is how much clarity they had; they have all the thick tones that you might expect, but with less mid-range and a lower output than many modern P90s. We've emulated all of this in the '54, creating an incredibly versatile P90 with a little less honk than many people associate with this kind of a pickup. It is impressively touch responsive, with full, airy mids and plenty of bite.

All of the HB-sized P90's in Monty's Turncoat Series are made in the same way as the regular P90s, making sure that the coil, magnet and polepieces are exactly the same shape, size and material. This ensures that the Humbucker-sized '54 P90 doesn't merely recreate the sound of its less traitorous sibling, but is actually the same pickup, the only functional difference being the footprint of the casing. In addition, the pickup covers are high-quality Nickel Silver. These covers have virtually no effect on the tone, so there's no need to worry about any tone suck from the additional metalwork.

Monty's 54 P90 has no wax-potting, ensuring maximum clarity and responsiveness.
