Summary
A true P90 tone that is a drop-in replacement for any standard sized humbucker slot. No routing required.

Description
Originally developed in the Custom Shop for Hamer Guitars, the Phat Cat is a true single-coil P-90 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 youd 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 metal 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 our Phatr Cat bridge model for a complete set, or combine with a humbucker in the bridge position for greater tonal variety.Hand built in Santa Barbara, CA, the Phat Cat uses dual alnico 2 bar magnets, custom nickel or gold cover, nickel silver bottom plate, and single-conductor braided hookup wire. Vacuum wax potted for squeal free operation.

Awesome addition to a Tele
I got this to replace the stock neck pickup in my Fender American Standard Telecaster.

The tone is great: thick, raw and snarling just like a regular P90. Adds a little darker element to the Tele without getting as full and dark as a regular humbucker. Given that the music I enjoy listening to (and trying to learn to play) is primarily classic rock, blues, and country (ish) it's a perfect fit.

The one downside is that it's much louder than the remaining stock bridge pickup. The sounds blend rather nicely in the middle switch position, but switching from bridge to neck requires a dial-down on the volume knob. Definitely not a problem with the Phat Cat, and there are various ways of dealing with that anyway.

Definitely worth the price if you're looking for a P90 sound and don't want to get all power-toolsy on your guitar.
