Singletone Introduces Vintage A6 P-90 Pickups

Singletone Introduces Vintage A6 P-90 Pickups

The new P-90 sets features nickel silver baseplates, enamel wire, and PAF-style screws.

Orlando, FL (January 18, 2021) -- Adding to the company’s line of hand-wound, premium quality pickups, Singletone is releasing the Kraken of P-90 pickups for 2021.

Singletone’s new Vintage A6 P-90 pickups use vintage techniques and AlNiCo 6 magnets to create the ultimate P-90 tone while retaining all of the midrange push that P90s are known for.

This killer set of P-90s offers increased clarity without any treble harshness in the bridge or mud in the neck. Offering extraordinary versatility and articulation, the Vintage A6 90 is designed to work with your guitar volume knob: roll back your volume knob for clean and clear tone, or go up to 10 for the full flamethrower experience!

The original P-90 pickups set the stage for the ultimate single coil tone. Singletone Pickups has taken that stage and refined it. Our Vintage A6 pickups use vintage spec materials: nickel silver baseplates, enamel wire, 2 wire braided hookup leads, 1010 steel retainers, and PAF style screws and are wound to vintage specs. Then we use alnico 6 magnets in unison with our own secret blend of other alnico grade magnets for the neck and bridge positions to create the perfect blend of vintage tone with modern versatility.

Singletone Pickups is committed to excellence and customer service. We create pickups designed for the player who wants to have a signature sound as well as emulate the guitar gods of the past. All pickups come with a lifetime guarantee against manufacturer defect.

MSRP: $180.00 per matched set – dog-ear and soap bar versions available directly online at singletonepickups.com.

While Annie Clark was named the 26th greatest guitarist of all time by Rolling Stone in 2023, she couldn’t care less about impressing an athletic stamp on either her sound or her image.

On her eighth studio release, the electroacoustic art-rock guitarist and producer animates an extension of the strange and singular voice she’s been honing since her debut in 2007.

“Did you grow up Unitarian?” Annie Clark asks me. We’re sitting in a control room at Electric Lady Studios in New York’s West Village, and I’ve just explained my personal belief system to her, to see if Clark, aka St. Vincent, might relate and return the favor. After all, does she not possess a kind of sainthood worth inquiring about?

Mdou Moctar has led his Tuareg crew around the world, but their hometown performances in Agadez, Niger, last year were their most treasured.

On the Tuareg band’s Funeral for Justice, they light a fiery, mournful pyre of razor-sharp desert-blues riffs and political calls to arms.

Mdou Moctar, the performing moniker of Tuareg guitar icon Mahamadou “Mdou” Souleymane, has played some pretty big gigs. Alongside guitarist Ahmoudou Madassane, drummer Souleymane Ibrahim, and bassist Mikey Coltun, Moctar has led his band’s kinetic blend of rock, psych, and Tuareg cultural traditions like assouf and takamba to Newport Folk Festival, Pitchfork Music Festival, and, just this past April, to the luxe fields of Indio, California, for Coachella. Off-kilter indie-rock darlings Parquet Courts brought them across the United States in 2022, after which they hit Europe for a run of headline dates.
