Have you tried ebay?
If there's nothing, buy the guitar and rip the pickup out of there.

No, its made specifically for that guitar,
so unless someones selling one used the only way is the guitar

I still vouch for ripping apart the Gibson sig.

In all seriousness, you could try to find a pickup that has a similar sound as the H-90. It's a stacked P-90, so you could try to find that. Or just look on other forums and use Google.

Good luck.

P.S. Just curious, why do you need this specific pickup? Just for that Green Day tone?

EDIT: Try this?

I don't think it will be exactly the same as the H-90, as it is made by two different companies and will have noticeable differences. I read on another forum that the H-90 is rated between 13-14 k, which makes the pickup pretty hot by normal standards. I also read that the H-90 isn't a great pickup overall. Maybe you should consider another option.

Again, I ask you, why do you need this particular pickup?
We could help you another pickup to match the sound you're looking for.

i want it for the green day tone. i was planing on buyin a billie joe sig. but its just too much for me so i want to buy a cheaper les paul junior and i wanted to put that pickup in it but if u have any recommendations to other pickups that sound close to that it would be really helpful.

You could get a Les Paul and find a pickup that has a similar tone to Billie's.
And sorry, I went out for a while.

I'll go look around for one.

EDIT: Billie used a Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB, look into those.

okay, just so you know, billie rarely ever uses his sig. ones. he uses floyd, which is a 50's era one, with a real p-90, so buy one of those.
