A Humbucker-sized P-90!

The P-90 is a legend. The SPH90-1n Phat Cat from Seymour Duncan lets those of us with humbucker-equipped guitars tap into that great sound with a P-90 designed to fit a humbucker-sized opening. The P-90 gives you a tone that cuts through the mix, thanks to a strong midrange and treble response, and the bottom end is warm and spongy. The nickel cover gives your guitar a vintage-style look. Just because your guitar was born with humbuckers doesn't mean you're locked into that sound. Drop a SPH90-1n Phat Cat in and enjoy the classic sound of a P-90 in your favorite guitar!

Phatty Boom Boom

Swapped out a Humbucker in a Les Paul Jr. with this guy and it sounds amazing. Very bitey when overdriven and crystal clear when clean. For a P90 there is little to no hum. Great pickup.

lubs me some phat cats

My wife gave me a PRS SE for our anniversary a few years ago. I love to play the guitar I didn't dig the tone. The stock h'buckers were pretty good but not great. They were an average med output pup. One day I reached the point that I needed to do something. I ordered a Phat Cat set and dropped them in. In a word, awesome. They are like a pretty girl who can kiss you as well as bite. Very articulate, clear and touch sensitive. They "behave" really nicely with pedals. I A/B'd it with my early 60's ES125TCD loaded with P90's. They held their own quite well. A bit of advice. When you change your pups to these beauties. Change your volume pot to a 250k pot and change the cap to a .047. It really increases the usable tonal range. Smooth creamy jazz to screaming rock.

Phat Cat Coolness!

So, I had bought a neck Phat Cat a while and put it in a Tele build, and it didn't do much for me. As it sat in the closet, I also had a Les Paul Studio Faded I had ended up with in a Craigslist trade. I own several nice Les Pauls, and the Studio didn't get much (any) playing time. I loved the neck and the overall feel of it, but the humbuckers in it sounded like junk. I put it on Craigslist, and after a few weeks, I couldn't even give the poor thing away. I have always liked the sound of P-90's in a Les Paul, but didn't want to change up my good ones, so I thought I would buy a bridge P/C and put both of them in the Studio. That was one of the best ideas I've had in a long time. That little Studio came alive when I plugged it into my Twin Reverb with a Tube Screamer in front of it! I love it! Great growling mids and screaming highs and no "muddiness" in the neck position. These things snarl when pushed and clean up to a very tasty vintage single coil sound when backed off just a little. Just what a P-90 Les Paul should sound like. These pickups turned a dud into a stud! If you've been thinking about trying these in a Les Paul, I recommend it. That lowly little Studio guitar has become an absolute gas to play! I might even go rogue and put a set in one of my nicer LP's at some point, but this one has me covered for now!

Awesome as usual

Great addition to my epiphone sg. Seymour Duncans have never let me down, and these phat cats are no exception...clear and articulate distorted and clean:) Thanks again Nate Edwards, and Sweetwater staff, you guys are top notch!!!

Favorite pickups ever!

I love traditional p90s and I love these! They aren't exactly the same as traditional Gibson p90s but the get the job done. I'm very pleased with the tone of these pickups. Very transparent and responsive to touch and volume. Most versatile pickups I've played.
