A Humbucker sized P90 pickup (or HSP90) made for rock in all its possible variations. From Blues-Rock to Hard-rock, including desert rock, psycho blues or stoner. The Alnico 5 bridge pickup is edgy with forward bass and treble and deeper mids. It is made for punchy rhythms and solos. The neck pickup is equipped with an Alnico 4 and an Alnico 5 magnet . Its output level is a little lower to gain in dynamics and opening. The Vintage character is a little more present, thanks to the alnico 4. The two coupled pickups offer a nice palette of tones for all lovers of authentic raw rock.

I was looking to upgrade the pickups on my cheap little Les Paul, but I don't know anything about it! All I knew was that I wanted P90s. I gave Anthony examples of guitarists whose sound I like and he knew right away what to do. He kept me informed of the progress of the assembly and in just a few days I had my microphones. (Parcel without plastic in addition, bravo) He also advised me for the wiring - I wanted an out of phase push/pull - and showed a lot of patience with all my questions! In the end, my little guitar is now a bomb! I, who was considering not keeping it, is now out of the question, it is ringing the fire! Very happy with my purchase, great contact, great microphones, great guy. I recommend thoroughly!
