Mojotone Unveils the ’56 Quiet Coil P-90 Pickup

The pickup parallels all the characteristics of a real vintage P-90, but leaves behind the hum.

Burgaw, NC (February 3, 2017) -- Mojotone has announced the latest addition to their coveted Quiet Coil pickup line with the ’56 Quiet Coil P-90. With a simple approach and classic design this pick-up parallels all the characteristics of a real vintage P-90, but leaves behind the hum. Using only vintage spec parts and materials, this pickup delivers the most pure and authentic tone possible with absolutely no loss of true single coil P-90 tone.

Mojotone Pickup Designer, David Shepherd, describes the pick-up noting “Vintage P-90s from the '50s were very special because of their vocal and dynamic qualities, with bold highs that breathe with clarity. The only problem was the 60-cycle hum and for today's player, 60-cycle hum can be unbearable at times. Mojotone's '56 Quiet Coil hum-canceling P-90 delivers all of that vintage goodness of a coveted 1956 P-90 without ever compromising tone or feel.”

Retail Pricing starts at $119.95 each or $229.95 per set.

While the Yamaha name is famous in circles beyond the guitar world, they’ve made first-class guitars since the 1960s. And while they don’t unleash new releases with the frequency of some larger guitar brands, every now and then they come down the mountain with a new axe that reminds us of their capacity to build great electric 6-strings. In 2015, Yamaha introduced the first generation Revstar. With a handsome aesthetic inspired by the company’s motorcycle racing heritage, the Revstar combined sweet playability and vintage style touchstones. This year, Yamaha gave the Revstar an overhaul—including body chambering, updated pickups, and new switching. What’s impressive is how these alterations enhance the already impressive playability and versatility of the original.
