Designed as a replacement pickup for guitars equipped with mini-humbuckers, the Rio Grande Baby Jazzbar offers the sweet, smooth and harmonically rich tones of the classic P90 in a package that is a drop-in replacement for the minis.
Two basic models of the Rio Grande Baby "Soapbars" are available. The Baby Bluesbar, designed for the bridge position, is a slightly overwound P90 offering additional output, crunch and sustain compared to a standard-wound P90. For the neck position, the Baby Jazzbar offers lower output compared to the Bluesbar for chime, clarity and that glassy tone only a great P90 can deliver. The Baby Jazzbar comes RWRP for hum-cancelling when combined with the bridge pickup.
Ideal candidates for the Baby Soapbars would be the Gibson Firebird, Les Paul Deluxe, SG Special, SG-1, ES-390, Nitehawk and SG Deluxe. For Epiphone owners, the Baby Soapbars will work great in the Sheraton, Riviera, Sorento, Wilshire, Crestwood, Broadway and Caiola models. Whatever you have, if it has mini-humbuckers, the Rio Grande Baby Soapbars will fit. With the P-90 style mounting ring option, the Baby Soapbars can also be adapted to any guitar with a standard P-90 route.
Cover options include black, creme, chrome, nickel, toasted nickel, distressed nickel and gold. Mounting options include pickguard mount, flat mounting ring and Soapbar P-90 ring mount.
