Seymour Duncan SPH90-1b Phat Cat Gold Cover

Item: SD1130216GC

In the past, if a guitar player wanted true P-90 soapbar tone from a humbucker-equipped guitar, he or she would have to physically alter the guitar: Usually irreparably and often destroying the re-sale value of the instrument. Those days are over as Seymour Duncan has released the Phat Cat pickup. Phat Cats are true P-90 soapbar pickups squeezed into a humbucker cover. They are direct retrofits for most humbucker-equipped guitars, without need for permanent modification to the instrument. Phat Cats were created as a collaborative effort between Hamer founder, Jol Dantzig and Seymour W. Duncan. They were originally built in Seymour's Custom Shop for Hamer Guitars where they were used exclusively on their Newport series of USA-made instruments. Now, Phat Cats are built on Duncan's regular production line, which will increase production capacity and decrease the selling price. Says Dantzig, "We worked with Seymour Duncan to conceive Phat Cats, and now we're happy to see the opportunity for all of Duncan's customers to enjoy their great sound." Phat Cats are the call for the player looking for a great combination of output and high-end response. The tone is big, fat, and punchy with enhanced upper-mids for extra "cut." Like traditional P-90s, Phat Cats embody a true single coil design with two sand cast Alnico magnets and single conductor, braided shield, hookup cable. The short, flat bobbins account for the fatter, midrange-intensive tone; and the nickel-silver cover reduces 60-cycle hum and tames the raggedness sometimes associated with P-90s. The result is a pickup with a unique sonic signature. Phat Cats are available in neck and bridge calibrated positions, and with either nickel or gold plating on their nickel-silver cover. When used together in the neck-plus-bridge position, both pickups will be hum-canceling. Phat Cats are vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance. Phat Cats are hand built in Santa Barbara, California.

Authentic P-90 sound in a humbucker retrofit size pickup. Recommended for country, jazz, blues, rockabilly, classic rock and heavy rock. The tone is big and phat. It uses two Alnico 2 magnets for more sustain and softer attack. Also, the metal covers provide more shielding and noise reduction than standard soapbar covers. Available for both neck and bridge positions in a balanced set. The neck pickup is RW/RP relative to the bridge for hum-free performance when both pickups are used together. For use in any humbucker-equipped guitar. Works especially well in balanced instruments with rosewood, ebony or maple fingerboards.
