Revel V-90 Humbucker Sized P-90

(8 customer reviews)



Revel V-90 Humbucker Size P-90

The Revel V-90 is a true P-90 for your humbucker routed guitars offered in a variety of winds and magnet combinations.

The stock Revel V-90’s are wound with 43 AWG plain enamel wire around in-house cut, correctly sized bobbins, resulting in the same squat coils that are essential to the P-90 tone. Constructed utilizing a pair of custom length, sand cast and degaussed Alnico V magnets and period alloy correct screws. The tone is that unmistakable raw, barking, best mix of humbucker and single coil tone for which the P-90 is renowned and loved. The V-90 is touch sensitive, responds well to pick attack, and exhibits thick and grinding mids, tight lows and singing, blossoming highs. The stock Revel V-90 lends itself to a wide range of playing styles and work great for everything from jazz and blues to hard rock and metal.

The Revel V-90 is also available as our Jazz 90, Melancholia and Revel 90 P-90 builds or can be highly customized.

  • What’s the difference between your Soapbar or Dogear Revel 90 P-90s and your V-90 humbucker sized P-90? Nothing. These two pickups are the same but for form factor.
  • I want something other than stock. How do I know which style of V-90 is right for me? Email and ask! We’ll talk about it and decide what’s best for you.
  • What is the string spacing of the V-90? Stock is 50mm. 52mm (for Fender or like wider bridge guitars) and 49.2mm available in OPEN COVER only upon request.


  • Guitar: LP
  • Amp: Brown Deluxe
  • Mic: e609


Corporate marketing hype has made it mostly necessary to include sound clips and resistance specifications. For that reason I feel that clips are misleading. Clips let you hear almost everything except the pickup and primarily the amp in a controlled environment that’s not readily reproducible. Please take these thoughts into consideration.

  1. tony

    Awesome sounding and looking pickup, just what I wanted to make my Epi into a junior. Very impressed.

  2. Jessie Renfro

    I’m a self admitted P90 snob, and have had very underwhelming experiences with HB sized p90s, and I’ve tried many. I recently purchased a Frank Brothers guitar with a custom wound set of V90s and they are absolutely fantastic! Definitely deliver all the P90 goods. Beautiful acoustic like cleans, greasy, grinding overdrive, with the perfect mid range honk. These are the real deal and they look fantastic. Jesse us a pleasure to communicate with, and he’s definitely earned more of my business in the future.

  3. Christopher Crumbley

    I was looking for a pickup for a guitar repair for a customer and after about a month of talking to Jesse back and forth ordered a set of these for a 50s country gentleman copy. Full hollow body! No hum! no hiss! No awful feedback! just sweet sweet tone! The customer was very pleased! Thanks revel!

    I didn’t buy these directly from Revel. They were in a Classic Vibe Starcaster I bought from a friend as a Christmas present for myself. I really couldn’t believe how good these sounded, so much so that I emailed Revel to say so and offered to leave a review. These might be one of my favorite P90s and I own vintage P90s and Throbak’s.

  5. Joshua

    The rating for these should go up to 11! Jesse is very easy to talk to and knows his craft. He delivered on exactly what I wanted and I couldn’t be more happy. These pickups are the real deal.

  6. Jeff Adams

    I told Jesse I wanted my LP to sound like an old LP Jr. and he built me a set of V-90’s. Perfect! I now use my one guitar for everything I was using 3 guitars for. These are so beautiful sounding. I’ve tried so many pickups and been left wanting. No more. Thank you!!

  7. Jimmy Delight

    I didn’t buy these from Revel they came in a guitar I bought on craigslist. Have to leave a review because I’m blown away baby. It’s just in a cheapie Epi flat top LP but they make this guitar so f*****g good. Best $100 I ever spent.

  8. Matt Krotzer

    From copper and magnets this sorcerer of tone creates pure, amazing, and customized tones! We conversed back and forth a lot to decipher what I was looking for and Jesse, suggested a humbucker-sized p90 that had a little something special to it. He was absolutely right. The pickup he customized for me had the a great mid-range that articulated each note clearly and gets real nasty, in a good way, when it is dirty. It is spanky, punchy, and everything you would expect out of a p90 pickup with something just a bit more special.
