Meant to be played with a healthy dose of angst and aggression, the ‘La Pistola’ P90 Set evokes the do-it-yourself music attitude of the late ’70s with authentic simplicity. A real Les Paul was unaffordable for many at this time so the cheaper, but in no way inferior, P90-loaded LP Junior became the weapon of choice for many punk guitarists. The ‘La Pistola’ delivers such a natural level of drive from tube amps that you may find yourself putting away your beloved OD pedal for good. With punchy Alnico V magnets and the highest output P90 we make you’ll find a fizz and break-up from the bridge that is sublime, a lovely chimey rhythm tone in the middle position and with the volume rolled off a little some really nice warm tones can be obtained from the neck pickup. A lot of fun to play. Available in Dogear and Soapbar fittings.



  • Soapbar or Dogear Fitting (Please specify)
  • Alnico V Bar Magnets
  • Handwound with 42 AWG Plain Enamel Wire
  • Vintage Spec Output: 7.8k (N), 8.4k (B)

Delivery By default all of our pickups are shipped with Royal Mail who we find to be excellent both within the UK and Internationally. Their rates enable us to offer prices that are very reasonable for our customers and the timeframe is great for the vast majority of countries. We find that, once despatched, Royal Mail tend to take 1 working day within the UK, 2/3 working days within the EU, 4/5 working days to North America and Worldwide. These are guidelines and of course some countries differ and the level of ‘officiousness’ in customs departments differs massively worldwide. If ordering from a country which is notorious for taking a while to process imported goods (we can think of a few!) please build this into your expectation on the timeframe after despatch. How long will it take to make? As a small pickup maker handmaking within an extremely busy workshop we expect to complete all pickups sets within 16-20 working days (Relic’ed orders 5 days longer). We sometimes work quicker than those timeframes and we’ll always endeavour to finish your pickups as quick as we are able to of course. We can sometimes process a rush order if you have an upcoming, important concert or perhaps if you are buying for a relative’s birthday etc - feel free to message and we’ll always see what we can do.
