DiMarzio, Inc. announces the release of the Vintage P90™ Soapbar (DP280S), Dog Ear (DP280D), and Full-size Humbucker cover (DP286) pickups for electric guitars.

P90 pickups are a different breed. DiMarzio’s Vintage P90™ is a recreation of the late 50s Gibson single-coil with all of the midrange grittiness that makes a P90 pickup special.

DiMarzio’s Vintage P90™ starts with our calibrated dual Alnico 5 sandcast magnets and is wound on a specially-made vintage winding machine custom-designed by DiMarzio. This machine was used to create the correct winding profile and frequency response, and the winding process is unique. We use vintage tape, braided single-conductor hookup cable, and un-dipped coils.

This design gives the Vintage P90™ its sparkly mids and the growl of a vintage 50s Les Paul®. Chords have a nice harmonic bloom, and single notes are glassy with up-front silkiness.

P90s found their way into classic 60s and 70s recordings on everything from the Beatles to Leslie West and Mountain.

Chords have a warm but sparkly midrange bite, and single notes jump out nicely without sounding harsh.

The P90s come in three styles: Soapbar, Dog Ear, or mounted into a full-size humbucker cover.

DiMarzio’s Vintage P90™ Soapbar (DP280S), Dog Ear (DP280D), and Full-size Humbucker cover (DP286) pickups are made in the U.S.A., and may now be ordered for immediate delivery.
