BG Pups and Bryan Gunsher, a Northern California maker of handmade-handwound electric guitar pickups, have teamed up to create the "Pure90" pickup. This pickup started out basically as a BG Pups Vintage P90 soapbar pickup. After the coil is wound the bobbin and baseplate is trimmed to fit inside a humbucker cover. The only part used that is not used in BG Pups Vintage P90 set is the cover. Since true P90s use a plastic cover, a plastic humbucker cover is used. As chrome covers have an effect on tone.

The "Pure90" pickup is a true P90 built to fit a humbucker route. This pickup uses alnico magnets, nickel silver baseplate and pole screws and vintage braided hookup wires. Bridges reads in at around 10k and necks 7.8k. This pickup is great for rock, blues, jazz or anywhere you would want to use a traditional P90 pickup.
