The Nantucket HSP90 has a raw, in-your-face tone that continues the legacy of the early LP Jr and LP Special playing blues and rock guitarists. The sound of a hand-wound late ‘50s vintage P90 is unmistakable, and the Nantucket keeps that tone alive.
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.
Scatter-wound by hand with 42AWG plain enamel wire and using sand cast, vintage cut Alnico V magnets, the tone of the Nantucket humbucker-sized P90 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 gives all the power of a humbucker. Low notes are solid and tight, while the upper mids really grind. The upper mids never sound harsh, but 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 HSP90 really does lend itself to a huge range of playing styles.
Available in all our covered custom finishes.
