The Classic P90
Single or Set of 2 Pickups
Perhaps lazily described as our ‘straight down the line’ Classic P90 pickup, this pickup is designed to be pretty much the stock pickup that would have left the Parson’s Street Factory in the late fifties and early sixties. With its unfussy design it suits a multitude of tones from Epi Casino Classic Rock warmth to rockabilly and hard riffing. In our Les Paul Junior we find it to be very responsive to volume changes – one minute we’re ‘Sleepwalking’, the next we’re ‘Day Trippin’ and before long we find ourselves (ahem) ‘Rocking the Casbah’. What we’re trying to say is that this set is versatile and we love it! Warmth, snarl and clarity are all here for the player to coax out of his amp with these classic P90 pickups. Click on the ‘Watch/Listen’ Tab to see the legendary Andy Martin putting the set through its paces in his Custom British Racing Green Grayling from Gray Guitars.

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.
