Smooth P90

Great sustain and low end

Smooth P90

The Smooth P90 is great for blues and jazz tones and clean chords AlNiCo 2 Magnets. We use a winding pattern with these p90s to help bring out the tight notes and big sound. Standard output winding results in 7k range for the neck and 8k range for the bridge. Braided hookup wire and wax potted to prevent excess microphonic feedback.

Pairs nicely with a classic in the bridge or another smooth in the bridge. Use the cart to the right to create your set purchase/configuration.

Braided

Our p90’s are wired standard with metal braided hookup wire. The outer braid is ground (Usually to the back of the volume pot) and the inner wire is the hot (Usually to the lug of the volume pot or the selector switch.

Install tip: Make sure none of the metal braids come in contact with the inner hot portion of the pickup or it will cause it to short out. Since the whole outer portion of the ground wire is ground itself, make sure it doesn’t come into contact with any other points that could cause issues!
