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 handcrafted pickup. Great for thick lead tone - especially at bridge.

I'm hooked on Planet Tone's P-90s

I don't know how many pickups I've bought from Planet Tone-- somewhere between 20-30, I'd guess. EVERY one of them is my life-changing favorite until I get my next one! I'm hooked on PT's P90s now and probably will be for a while. So versatile! From Snow White's little bluebird friends to a broken glass crunching grizzly bear, these P90s are Jekyll and Hyde magic!

Just Wow…

What an incredible sounding pickup! This is my third purchase from PT and I am beyond belief in how good they all sound. The hot P90 has so much grit, dirt, gain, etc..but yet remains clear and un -muddied. Bought the bridge to try and I’ll be buying the match for the neck soon.

56 P-90 Hot

I installed this on a 12 string I am building as the Neck pickup, and so far I am enjoying the tone quite well! For ascetic reasons I replaced the plastic cover with a billet aluminum one that I made, which actually had a subtle sweetening of the tone. While the overall output and tone of the pickup aren’t quite what I was expecting—I have an early SG Special with P-90’s—I have to say these pickups replicate the style of the early Gibson pickups pretty darn well. The tone is just ever so slightly darker than the original pickups, but then they aren’t 60 years old either lol...
