A true P90 tone that is a drop-in replacement for any standard sized humbucker slot. No routing required.
Originally developed in the Custom Shop for Hamer Guitars, the Phat Cat is a true single-coil P90 Soapbar that fits under a humbucker cover and drops into humbucker-equipped guitars.
You get all of the authentic neck position bounce and sparkle that you'd expect from a vintage Gibson P90 Soapbar. Chords have lots of rich harmonics, and solos have that unique single coil springiness.
It uses two Alnico 2 bar magnets for more sustain and softer attack, and the metals covers provide more shielding and noise reduction than standard soapbar covers. The neck model is RWRP, reverse wind reverse polarity, from the bridge pickup to provide noiseless operation when used together. Pair with the Phat Cat bridge model for a complete set, or combine with a humbucker for a bit of tonal variety.
Hand built in Santa Barbara, CA, the Phat Cat uses dual Alnico 2 bar magnets, custom gold cover, nickel silver bottom plate, and single-conductor braided hookup wire. Vacuum wax potted for squeal free operation.
