Pickups Model
Gibson's P-90 "soapbar" is a vintage-style single-coil pickup that has long been a favorite of rock and blues players. Among the most accurate P-90 reproductions available today, Gibson USA's P-90 is made with two genuine Alnico V bar magnets in each pickup and wound with authentic 42 AWG plain enamel-coated wire, to authentically reproduce those thick, snarly, slightly grainy rock'n'roll tones of the '50s and '60s.

Tonal Characteristics
The dual P-90 pickups in the SG Special '60s Tribute offer down-to-business sounds from subtle to aggressive, which are capable of raw rock'n'roll and singing blues, yet surprisingly versatile, too. These pickups are characterized by everything from warm, vocal neck tones to plenty of bark and snarl from the bridge position, with round and funky tones in between, all with that distinctive bite and slightly gritty edge that is characteristic of this classic fat single-coil pickup.
