First off this humbucker sized P90 is how a full sized P90 should sound. Throaty, trebly, dirty, creamy, but with mids. Without mids you won’t be cutting through any mix anytime soon. Made well in Colorado USA, and although I live in Oregon I was born and raised in Denver so it was nice to send some business home. Now for why I actually bought this pup. Tough to judge a component without hearing it first. I took the chance because Jose of Planet Tone took the time to talk with me after I asked some questions on Facebook. I’ve gotten burned on some hum-sized P90’s in the past that once the cover was off were nothing more than just regular single coils. Jose took the time to show me the raw materials and the clearly larger bobbin compared to a standard sized humbucker. It was a fantastic and professional exchange and that’s what sells things - the personal touch. I will be purchasing more of Planet Tone pickups in the future. Thank you Jose and Planet Tone.
