Alnico 5 P90s?


59 and newer Gibson P90s.
I believe the TV Jones T-90 has A5 magnets too. However, I could be wrong about that, TV Jones only says they're alnico, but I think they're A5...they're not the same as what you'll find in a typical P90 though, they use the thicker Filtertron magnets.

I typically prefer A2, A3, A4, UOA5, or a combination of those in P90s though. Just my personal preference.

Yeah, from the 60’s on Gibson had A5 in their P-90’s. They are more aggressive. It all depends on what you’re looking for, but to be completely honest, a lot of people love stock Gibson P-90’s.
