From 'Premier Guitar' (reviewing Jason Lollar's 'Staple' recreation);

 

"...Unlike regular P-90s, where steel pole pieces make contact with an internal coil and magnet, the staple's pole pieces are themselves elongated rectangular magnets that extend through the coil. Gibson probably created the design to compete with the brighter tones of the DeArmond pickups in rival Gretsch guitars, not to mention those newfangled Fenders. And sure enough, the design yields better string-to-string differentiation and improved high-end detail..."

EDIT : It will also look V. cool in your ebony beauty......
