    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.

    Seymour Duncan SPH90-1n

    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.

    Great Tone

    I replaced the stock pups in my 2010 Gibson SG with these.
    I use this guitar. Just for playing old sabbath tunes and he gets the job done perfect!

    Ahhh thats better

    Replaced the neck humbucker in my Gibson SG. Not a single coil tone that I expected but very clear and warm, almost humbucker characteristics. It matches my bridge pickup in volume and is a keeper. Glad i changed.
