    Hey all

    Am doing a pickup swap for a friend and he asked me to find him a full HB pickup that is a " cross between a HB and a P90 in terms of tone and attack.

    I'm far from a pickup "guru" so was wondering if people could make some suggestions ?

    Is there a full size HB pickup that is a " cross between a HB and a P90 in terms of tone and attack " ?

    Ben

    Fralin P-92 is incredible. Bright and Bold like a P-90, But not shy on the bottom either.

    Sorry - I should have clarified better that he wants a Dual Coil Humbucker Pickup [not single coil].

    So ..... an actual Dual Coil Humbucker pickup that has elements of P90 tone and attack .....if such a thing even exists ...

    Mean 90's my fav humbucker sized P90. but that, like most, is a single coil. I think Dimarzio makes a humbucker size P90 sounding pickup that actually has two coils. The Bluesbucker.

    I understood. And the answer is still a Fralin P92. It is exactly What you've described: a dual coil hum bucker pickup with (strong) elements of P90 tone and attack. Another pickup that fits the description is the DiMarzio Bluesbucker.

    Lundgren's "Revolver" are great PU:s IMHO.

    I have no affiliation here but check them out: www.lundgren.se

    Vintage Vibe HS90
    Manlius Fat Goat
    Seymour Duncan Phat Cats (kind of a cross between a Strat SC and a P90, but in humbucker size)
    Vineham Humdog
    Gibson P94
    Harmonic Design Z90 (this one sounds like a P90 that has met a wide range humbucker on the way)
