Arguably the ultimate pickup with the best tonal elements of humbuckers and single coils, the P90 single coil has a distinct and gutsy tone all of its own.
The sound of a hand-wound late '50s vintage P90 is unmistakable, as is the tone of those early LP Jr and LP Special playing blues and rock guitarists; the Nantucket 90 continues that legacy.
Scatter-wound by hand with 42AWG plain enamel wire and using sand cast, vintage cut Alnico V magnets, the tone is raw and in your face. The wide, squat coil creates a fatter tone compared to a Strat or Tele coil while the twin magnet design lends all the power of a humbucker. Low notes are solid and tight while the upper mids really grind, never sounding harsh just really fat and chunky. High notes can really sing and with a slightly breaking up tube amp, wonderful harmonic feedback is possible. A touch sensitive dynamic and the ability to clean up well as the volume is backed off, the Nantucket 90 really does lend itself to a huge range of playing styles.
