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 operation.
