Oil City humbucker sized Mighty Nineties are wound like their proper, full sized cousins: using a specially designed bobbin (made by us) to capture as much of that vintage tone as possible.
The Mighty Ninety has a resistance of 7.5 neck, 8k bridge (average) and a sweet but edgy classic tone. Under drive it becomes progressively ruder and more aggressive.
Built with classic alnico 5 magnets, and Available in nickel cover with 49.2mm (classic Gibson) string spacing, or open topped (nickel or black ring) in 49.2 or now ‘trem spaced’ 52mm for the bridge!
Oil City pickups have no connection with Fender Musical Instruments Gibson or Gretsch.
Takes the recipe that has made the Mighty Ninety a success and makes it just a touch more laid back.
Using alnico 2 magnets in the neck position
And a hybrid alnico 4 for the bridge.
Still lots of meat and two veg … just with a nice smooth gravy!
Classic 49.2 spacing
Humbucker sized ‘P90’ single coil:
Though they are one of the oldest pickup designs around, P90s never seem to lose their appeal. However, it’s only in fairly recent years that the tone of a proper ‘90’ has been available in humbucker size.
In the early days pickup winders fudged about using humbucker bobbins inside P90 style casings, or cut down P90 bobbins to fit ‘bucker’ sized covers.
Like the mighty ninety only more so! A 10k powerhouse packing alnico 8 magnets.
Full nickel covers available as a special option below.
