The ’54 P90’s from Monty’s are incredible recreations of vintage P90’s – specifically modelled on one from a mid-'60s Epiphone Century and the other from a 1954 Gibson Les Paul. This variant comes in a Soapbar style with a Black finish.
These P90’s feature less ‘honk’, which is commonly associated with these types of pickup. More bite, light mids and great responsiveness all feature, making for a supremely versatile P90.
Here’s what Monty’s Guitars say about the Originals
Our sonic recreations of real vintage pickups, the Originals series is the bread and butter of Monty’s pickup universe. Over the last 20 years, we’ve been fortunate enough to see, repair and play countless examples of basically every vintage pickup imaginable. While not every old pickup is particularly good (in fact, we’ve seen some absolute shockers in our time), the best of them are simply divine. We’ve worked out what it is that makes these tonal titans tick and distilled their essence into each and every one of our Originals series pickups. If you’re after pure vintage tone, these are the pickups for you.
