"Phat Cats in my Les Paul Copy - From Average guitar to Great guitar"

Seymour Duncan SPH90-1 Phat CatPublished on 12/08/17 at 07:48
I found a set of these pickups going for around $45 on ebay and they had never been fitted in any guitar so essentially I got them brand new. This was the deal of the century. I was actually on the lookout for humbuckers until I came across these.

I had never used or owned a guitar with P90's so I was unaware of the sound at first but once I put them in my guitar there was no way I was going back. I play a lot of country licks and such and the clarity I get from these pickups is amazing.

My Tanglewood Les Paul copy came with pretty average pickups and by putting these phat cats in I feel like I have upgraded the sound of this guitar by miles.

Highly recomend this pickup. What's......

Highly recomend this pickup. What's great about it is that it requires no modifications at all for those guitars that already have humbuckers.

Thanks!

"P-90 tone in a humbucker size"

Seymour Duncan SPH90-1 Phat CatPublished on 05/27/11 at 08:04
The Seymour Duncan Phat Cat P-90 sure is a cool cat. With this pikcup you get all the output, tone and sustain of your favorite humbucking pickup but with the all the definition and note clarity of a single coil. This pickup is super dynamic. It can be warm and thick for blues or be crunchy for rock. P-90s respond well to how you are playing and goes along with you. These pickups are very lively and punchy. They have a thinner bottom end than most P-90s but there are a ton of mids and top end spank. They are very responsive and sensitive to pick attack. I compared the Phat Cat Les Paul to a 2004 Gibson Classic SG with stock Gibson P-90’s which are the traditional big P-90s. I also......

They have a thinner bottom end than most P-90s but there are a ton of mids and top end spank. They are very responsive and sensitive to pick attack. I compared the Phat Cat Les Paul to a 2004 Gibson Classic SG with stock Gibson P-90’s which are the traditional big P-90s. I also compared it to a Les Paul Historic Special Double Cut reissue, (modeled after the 1960 Les Paul Special DC). I found the Gibson P-90’s in both guitars to be both a bit warmer and smoother with greater bottom end. Overall, the Gibson P-90’s had a much fuller and “wider” sound while the Phat Cats seemed more closely aligned with a hotter Fender single coil sound. With that said, the Phat Cats do not sound bad at all. The Phat Cats sounded very good overdriven and with high gain. They were surprisingly quiet and certainly would help cut through the mix in a band setting. Some tonal differences between the Phat Cat and the Gibson Traditional P-90s can be explained by the Gibson P-90 being much larger in size and able to pick up my frequencies. This also means that they cannot be easily installed onto a guitar that didnt come with them. The Phat Cat can do a variety of tones and could be used for many styles. I could do country to jazz to rock even. If you are looking for some of that classy P-90 tone and do not want to have to cut up your guitar to get them to fit, the SD Phat Cat may be for you.

" Exc! I finally found my sound!"

Seymour Duncan SPH90-1 Phat CatPublished on 11/01/14 at 10:49

I have these pickups for a few days, and I must say I'm really impressed with the sound. I have always been a fervent supporter of humbuckers because I found the sound too simple flat and dry coils, but now we play in a different category. I had Seymour Duncan Alnico 2, I changed for GFS Alnico Classic II 2, finally opting for the Phat Cat. I love the sound crystal clear sound that allows me to tease the funk and soul as the blues, and in overdrive, it is the fontière between countries that Jimmy Page and Hendrix ... What asked to better? The presence of double precision is kept with the simple. In summary, long live the big cats P90!

A 180 € kit (neck + bridge) I said yes no regrets I thought the fact that either Alnico II pickups and 5 were not influenced heavily on his return with a not very accurate, in fact nothing of everything is even better than the Gibson P94 Alnico 5, according to Duncan rendering with Alnico II gave the best result in the size humbucker, being a former owner of a Gibson with P90 I am very happy to have found this mic and it's on my SG ...
