Lollar pickups announces the release of a P-90 replacement pickup and pick guard for original Melody Makers’ that requires no modification to the guitar.According to Jason Lollar, the company’s founder, “The traditional rout in the guitar body is too small to fit a soapbar style P-90 with a pickup cover, but it is large enough to accommodate this modified-shape P-90 pickup.” The pickguard is available for double cutaway, early 60’s models with single pickup and later, double cutaway SG styles with single pickup. The pickup comes in black only; pickguards are available in single ply black, white or parchment.
Installation is as easy as removing the original pickguard along with all its attached electronics and dropping in the new pickup and pickguard. “We can also pre-wire everything for you”, adds Lollar. “All you have to do is solder the string ground wire to the back of a pot.”
