JJ's Simulcaster Pickups

Our Simulcaster pickups aim to offer the best possible P-90 tone in any guitar.

 Following the release of our S-90 Simulcaster for Strat, we have had requests for a Telecaster version, which is now available (scroll down to see those). We've also had a Humbucker sized P-90 pickup in the works for a while now and it will be available soon. 

Simulcaster pickups are not a true P-90. For a true P-90 pickup and tone, please see our J-90 set.

We've been working on these for a while and they absolutely rip. We have built these from the ground up and they are like no other on the market. We have truly captured the feel of a vintage P-90 and shoehorned it into a Strat footprint. We are now taking orders for these sets.

Metalwork; The same 1018 Low Carbon Steel as we use in our Sovereign Humbuckers and full-sized J-90 pickups.

Please cheek our pickup dimensions before purchase, to make sure you have clearance inside your guitar.

New - A bit about the T-90

T-90 is not a P-90, just to clear that up for the aficionados. Within the existing dimensions of a Tele design, it is the closest to a P-90 sound we can get that drops straight in without routing timber, and buying loads of expensive hardware. 

T-90 does meet the key requirements of a P-90 in terms of tone.

Power ✓ Clarity ✓ Dynamic ✓ Touch responsive ✓ Snarly, thick mid-range ✓

The T-90 set is made from 61 individual parts and is time consuming to make. We build them from the ground up with parts we make in-house. The T-90 has no baseplate, because the magnet structure is the same as P-90 and a baseplate would stop this pickup design from working.

There are two wires, black and white, for the coil. These go in the usual places. (Black to rear of volume pot, white to left lug of volume pot) There is a third wire which grounds the metal pole pieces for lower noise operation. The black and white wires can be switched around and the neck cover is not connected, so you can change polarity or perform series (4 way) wiring. 

The T-90 pickups can be used in any wiring configurations like Micawber, T-90 bridge/J-90 neck, series, Nashville etc

We will be offering the bridge pickup individually, and we can also pair a T-90 bridge with something different in the neck if you like.

Feel free to mix and match, we can supply diagrams to get you up and running.

The T-90 set likes to see a 500K pot, but it's not essential. 500K will offer a little more output, graunchy mids and top end detail, so we recommend 500K. Use whatever tone capacitor you like. We prefer 0.022uF, but 0.033uF or 0.047uF are also great.
