A true P90 bridge tone in a standard sized humbucker slot. No routing required.
Originally developed in the Custom Shop for Hamer Guitars,
the Phat Cat is a true single-coil P90 Soapbar which fits under a
humbucker cover and drops into humbucker-equipped guitars. You get all
of the authentic bridge position grit and growl that you’d expect from a
vintage P90 Soapbar. We wound the bridge to give you chords with lots
of bright harmonics, and solos have that sharp single coil cut. 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. Pair with our Phat Cat neck model for a complete set.
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
