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!

Serious Tone

I swapped this with a 496R ceramic magnet humbucker I had in the neck of a '99 Les Paul Classic. I can now make my Les Paul quack,in a good way! The versatility of this pickup is world class.Paired with a P.A.F. in the bridge ,it gives me all the tonal options I need.Serious upgrade!!

Clarity and Rock

Installed this pickup on my Telecaster. I had a single coil stock pickup and when I discovered my tele was able to fit a hum bucker setup I was so excited. I researched different pickups and realized that a lot of Pros were using this for Rock. I play in a band and as soon as I installed this pickup the clarity, gain, and quality of sound was just night and day! So glad I got it, feel like I'm playing a million dollar guitar now!

These are HOT P-90s

Over two years of use and comparing to many high-end Humbuckers in two Gibson LPs ('92 Standard and '04 R8), these have become my pickup of choice for both high output and P-90 tone. They are higher-output than most PAF-style Humbuckers, but with that inimitable P-90 clarity and smooth bite. If you get one, put it in the neck, and try it in the bridge as well. My bridge Cat came with a lead too short to reach the neck, so I'd recommend against buying only a bridge pickup first. With both pickups on, they are hum canceling, but mine don't hum any more than Humbuckers anyway.

Put this in the neck position on my 1973 Tele. Love it. Makes for a richer & beefier sound. not as flat sounding as a humbucker.

Just right

I used this pup to replace a humbucker in my LP because the tone and individual notes were a little muddled on the low end. I use a Fender reverb deluxe and the tone and clarity are much better with this pup. Being an intermediate guitarist I am still figuring things out but I am really pleased with this pup and P-90 in general for the tone I want. The customer service from AJ was exemplary as always.
