P90 sound for humbucker routed guitars

BG Pups new Pure90 is a real P90 pickup that fits a humbucker route. Bryan Gunsher of BG Pups said this set started out basically as a set of Vintage P90 soapbar pickups.

"After the coil is wound the bobbin and baseplate is trimmed to fit inside a humbucker cover. The only part used that is not used in my Vintage P90 set is the cover. Though I decided since true P90s use a plastic cover, I would use a plastic humbucker cover. As chrome covers have an effect on tone" Bryan writes on the BG website.

The Pure90 uses alnico magnets, nickel silver baseplate and pole screws and vintage braided hookup wires. Bridges weigh in at approxim 10k and necks 7.8k.

Cost is $90.00 or $165.00 for the set.

I have a pair of Brian's pure90s in my epiphone sheraton. It really turned my guitar into a sonic beast. a great sound, rich and twangy at the same time. I would highly recommend it. just be sure you know that the humbucker sound and the p90 sound are noticably different.
