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