Add P-90 sound to your humbucker-equipped axe.

A Phat Cat is an actual single-coil P-90 Soapbar guitar pickup that fits under a humbucker guitar pickup cover and drops into humbucker-equipped guitars. The tone is big and fat, er, phat. It uses two Alnico 2 magnets for more sustain and softer attack. Also, the metal covers provide more shielding and noise reduction than standard soapbar covers. Comes with single-conductor hookup cable.

  • Great in a Telecaster, too

    As reviewed by Andrew on 10/31/2009

    I originally got the SPH90-1B Phat Cat to replace the bridge pickup in my Ibanez hollowbody. In a fit of weirdness, though, I ended up installing in the neck position on my 2006 Telecaster. I decided to remove the pick guard to take a look at the rout and think about some new pickup options, and decided to see if the Phat Cat would fit...and it dropped right in!! With much better output than the stock neck pickup, it remains well balanced when clean, but turns to pure raunch and snot when you add fuzz, overdrive or distortion. The tones I got from this amazing (not so) little guy in the neck ranged from beautiful to screaming. And in a surprise turn, when I tried blending the stock Fender bridge pickup with the Phat Cat in the neck, I found one of the glassiest, clearest clean tones my ears have EVER encountered. Tele players, take note, this pickup really can help your favorite Fender do anything!

  • Adding bite to your guitar

    As reviewed by Pedro Amado on 10/9/2010

    i have always been a strat fan but so many people speak so highly of Les Pauls that i had to try one, i bought a nice black Les Paul Studio 1997 with a rare ebony fingerboard and though i love the sounds it gives with distortion the cleans were never very satisfying....i decided to try and fix this by replacing the bridge pickup and read a lot and finally purchased the phat cat, after replacing the original the original Gibson Humbucker that comes stock with the new phat cat my Les Paul has come alive!! the cleans have improved so much and the distortion is so clear!! i certainly would recommend it to anyone who wants to improve the cleans and all around sound on an Humbucker equipped guitar...

  • WOW - Best P90 for the money !

    As reviewed by Normand Drolet on 4/7/2012

    I just install a Phat Cat in the the neck position on a G&L Asat BluesBoy USA. It replace a Seymour Duncan Seth Lover. The sound is fantastic, as a P90 should be. Good quality. I like a lot the P90 mean sound. I tried a set of Mississipi Queen from Bare Knucle: very expensive and too bright. I have also a guitar with P90 from Jason Lollar: also expensive but excellent. The best for me. But for the money, nothing compare to the Phat Cat. Very satisfied.
