Humbucker-sized P-90s?
« on: April 11, 2005, 09:29:12 AM »
Hi, just wondering...

Do you offer, or are there any plans on offering, P-90-style pickups for mounting in a standard humbucker rout?

I've tried many - none of them sound quiet like a proper P90 IMHO!

Ah ok, and why is that do you think? Is it that it's impossible to get proper P90 tone out of something humbucker-sized or is it because what most pickup manufacturers advertise as humbucker-sized P90s really aren't "proper" P90s?

Yes we do make them now-give me a call to talk through options.

As HJM says, humbucker sized P90s aren't the same as a true P90 but we like to think we've got ours closer than anyone else.
