Gibson P-94R B/C Pickup

PickupBefore Gibson developed the legendary PAF humbucker, the P90 Soap Bar single coil was built into most Gibsons as a standard pickup. In the 70s and 80s this classic was overlooked, but in recent years the Soapbar has experienced a renaissance in many guitars. An especially popular combination: mahogany guitar with P90 type. Since the original P90 does not want to fit into a humbucker hole, Gibson has put this pickup into a humbucker format, enabling, for example, one to equip their Les Paul with the P94 without modification.

What many guitarists love about the P90 / 94:

Open sound and dynamics of a single coil pickup along with the bite and (if desired) distortion of a humbucker. The ideal pickup for Blues / Crunchsound!

  • P-90 in humbucker format
  • For neck position
  • Alnico magnets
  • Easy installation
  • Characteristics: powerful sound, balanced, fast response, conveys every dynamic nuance, fantastic sustain
  • Housing: Black top & open chrome mount

Fabulous for LPs

Trubshaw, 16.08.2017
I bought these for a Tanglewood Les Paul copy. (TSB58) The quality and the level of fit and finish on this guitar is very high. I have had Gibson's, Fender's, Rickenbacker's and they were no better and frequently worse. (Although never terrible.) Only the Korean Schecter and the Japanese Strat were of higher quality than the Tanglewood TSB58 LP. But that having been said the only issue with the 58 was the pickups. These were Entwhistle HV58 and although good-ish i wanted P-90s because that's my thing. When I started looking around for humbucker sized P-90s I discovered these Gibson P-94s. They had great reviews, a reasonable price, terrific looks and would fit in the holes! I had my guitar tech fit them as I wanted a proper job done and I wanted the wiring modified away from stock that followed the Gibson plan whereby dropping one volume control to zero in the middle pickup position cut all output. I don't like that. Anyway I love the sound of these, very P-90, very single coil, lots of highs and lots of meat with clarity. i cannot speak highly enough of them. They may not look like traditional soapbars and they do not sound exactly like soapbars - they are a different shape after all. But then every pickup sounds "slightly" different from one manufacturer to another or from model to model. But they are great big fat single coils and they sound like it.

Very close to a real P90

olorin, 14.04.2018
I used the pickup in a Telecaster neck position. It's a tad warmer than a real P90 but is sounds fantastic. The best humbucker sized P90 pickup I have used until now. I needed to upgrade my bridge pickup though in order to balance with the output of this pickup since it has more output and "body" than a telecaster single coil pickup.
