P90 Sized Fat Humbucker
Pole Magnets: Alnico 5
Coil Wire: 43AWG Plain Enamel
Lead Wire: Braided
More of a warmer, PAF style P90 sized Humbucker
A bar magnet style humbucker pickup inside a P90 that requires no modifications to your guitar at all. Its essentially the standard humbucker design of two coils with bar magnet and steel pole screws. The slight difference, other than the size & look, is that I use a series of 5 magnets designed to fit around the 2 central fixing screws. I do this to make the pickup a completely direct drop-in replacement.
Unlike other P90-sized PAF style humbuckers, there's no need to drill new mounting holes into the body of your guitar with mine. No modifications necessary to your guitar.
More of a warmer, classic humbucker tone than my Dual Blade design, slightly brighter and more focused as I allow both rows of pole screws through the custom made covers.
I use the thinner 43AWG coil wire on this design which means the actual perceived volume will be lower than the high output would suggest, namely around 8.8k Bridge & 7.8k Neck respectively - The slightly higher output compensates for the slightly taller, thinner coils.
NOTE: A note on covers. The Cream or Black "No Holes" covers (Main Picture) don't have the usual centre line of 6 holes but do have a tighter corner radius so are a struggle to fit into a standard Gibson pickup cavity. If you have a Gibson, please select the "Centre Holes" option (Picture Below) or one of the open face covers.
