I asked Rob to describe what he heard as the difference between the old P-90’s and the new Lollar Mini Humbuckers……………..”More upper mids and output. Neck p/u is tight and focused, not as woofy. Sits great in the band mix. No 60cycle hum (hooray)”.
“More Thin Lizzy a little less Cream”
Lollar really thought this out. They are nice enough to include all the parts needed to mount the new Mini-Humbuckers in the ring. The pickups are hard mounted to the new ring with a screw, spacer and nut. The nut is secured to the screw so it can still turn and the pickup is solid in the ring. The pickup and ring assembly then screw into the new universal mounting plate as one piece.
(the screw actually sticks out much more than in the photo. that’s what screws into the guitar)
