Bootstrap USA Wheat Penny T-90 Set for Gibson® P90
We had some requests for our Palo Duro™ for Tele® tone, but in a P90 form factor. Sure, why not? Both the neck and bridge pups are wound to our Palo Duro™ specs and swap into your soapbar-routed guitar with no additional modification. The bridge position features a Bootstrapped inductor plate made from 1943 steel wheat pennies to deliver classic T-style twang while also being educational! Also available in our other T-style sets.
