Creamery Custom Handwound Tele-90 Pickup – A P90 pickup to fit the Telecaster Bridge Position
P90s are great pickups. That fat, single coil tone can really drive an amp giving a gritty, snarly tone great for riffs. But what if you want something a little different from a P90 pickup? Maybe you’re after a higher output? Maybe you want a brighter tone? A fatter tone? More of a humbucker sound? Maybe you just want something different all together, something unique?

A 12-pole humbucker pickup inside a P90 that requires no modifications to your guitar at all. My P90 sized Humbuckers even look like a P90.

Not the best looking guitar in town due to the three pickup configuration and cream P90 covers (which I’m changing to black) but the sounds you can coax from this guitar are just sweet. The heavier gauge strings, coupled with a one piece heavy mahogany body, rosewood fingerboard and fatter sounding P90 pickups rather than tele/strat types give this guitar a real warmth.
Named after a comment I overheard whilst climbing off the train at Manchester Piccadilly station, as a group of guys climbed on, eager to get back home south.
A tele take on the Les Paul Junior. Whilst waiting for a batch of parts to arrive so I could wind the single P90 needed, the guitar was wired up with an old Gibson P90 I had lying around.

Just got the promo cards back from the printers. It’s all coming together. Recoded most of the soundfiles for both guitars & pickups. Just got to finish off the final versions of the Fuzz and tremolo pedals, record the tones and get them on the site. Completion of the online store is the priority then its time to roll up my sleeves and get back to work – those pickups don’t wind themselves.
