    Well not really...

    Just our Strat style pickups under a P90 cover. We can do anything we do in a Strat pickup, but I think the more appropriate choices in this format are:

    Juicy and Throaty Buckers
    Convertibles
    Fat 5 family (Fat Single, Fat Single Special, SV5+)

    They'll be $109 and covers will be available separately for $10 each in black and cream. I should have these up on the site within a couple of weeks, but if you want them now, email us!

    This is my Hamer P90 Special with a Juicy in the bridge and a Convertible in the neck.

    Dig it. Kinda sorta look like a futuristic version of the classic staple top p90. Very cool. Too bad I don't have a p90 equipped guitar right now.

    I thought it was a rule that you had to have at least one P-90 guitar to be on the forum! WTF?:eek:

    Very cool styling. Where did you get those covers made?

    They're stock solid P90 covers that I have machined. The really cool styling is under the cover!

    It's actually functional. The styling is an artifact.

    I've already asked this, but I had this thought again not knowing about these p90s. Jazzmaster pickups? :)

    I've heard that the Japanese Jazzmasters have pickups that are bascially Strat pickups under a Jazzmaster cover, anyway.

    You don't get anything for free, and even with these P90s it's not quite as simple as just putting a Strat pickup under a P90 cover as it turns out. Still working some bugs out. Suffice it to say, epoxy is a fickle b*tch!

    We'll cover as many bases as we can eventually...but I only have so much bandwidth.

    What's the scoop on these P90 sized Zexcoils? I'm still trying to find out if I can buy a set.

    Did you post on YT? For some reason it wouldn't let me respond to the comment.

    Short story, these aren't something we're pushing as they are difficult to make and there are almost always cosmetic issues (scratches on the covers), due to difficult clean-up after potting. Not a show stopper for any reasonable person that's expecting it, but also not something we would want to be doing every day and/or listing on the site.

    But, I do have a stock of slotted covers, and we can put any of our Strat sized flavors under a P90 cover.

    Send an email to the info link on our site if you are interested, and I can give you the details.

    Yes. I think I did try to contact you via Youtube. In addition to that, I e-mailed you on August 4 of this year. I'll send an e-mail to the info link. Thanks!
