Expert Review

Seymour Duncan must have spent a good amount of time analyzing the design and build of the original Gibson P90 pickup when building their Vintage P90, because this thing can easily replace the original without much detection from discerning ears. In fact, many guitarists consider Seymour Duncan’s model their go-to, whether they are replacing the original in their Gibson or just want to harness that thick and loud sound at a fraction of the cost of the real deal. Seymour Duncan used plain enamel wire to wind this single coil, using of course, the same Leesona winder that Gibson utilized in their factory in the 1950s. The result is a higher output and a sparkling midrange that can really growl when used in overdrive. The Vintage P90 is wax potted to prevent feedback, and while this thing can get a little noisy when the gain on your amp is turned all the way up, that’s par for the course with any single coil pickup.Rating: 4.75/5
