At The Farm, we don’t rely on bland manufacturer stock photos - we physically photograph one of each model to show a better representation of the product. Some minor details like wood grain and color finish can, and may vary slightly from the pictures below.
Want the focused mid bite and unique attack of a P-90, but have an instrument routed for humbuckers? You need a humbucker sized P90 Phat Cat. The Phat Cat is a true single-coil P90 Soapbar retrofitted under a humbucker cover for use in humbucker-equipped guitars.
Originally developed this pickup in the Seymour Duncan Custom Shop for Hamer Guitars, but eventually the demand became so great that theymoved it to regular production.
The Phat Cats give you all the authentic grit and growl that you’d expect from a great vintage P90 Soapbar in the bridge position. Chords have bright, ringing harmonic overtones while solos have that classic P90 cut and edge. Two Alnico 2 bar magnets to give you more sustain and a compressed attack, while the metal covers provide more shielding and noise reduction than standard soapbar covers.
Other appointments include a nickel silver bottom plate, single-conductor braided hookup wire and vacuum wax potting for squeal free operation.
The Phat Cat humbucker size P90 pickups are hand built in Santa Barbara, CA.
