Monty’s Humbucker sized FM P90 transmutes all of the glorious tone of the Full Monty P90 into a humbucker sized casing, perfect for retrofitting into humbucker guitars or incorporating into custom builds. The Full Monty P90 is Monty's supercharged version of a classic P90; with more output and mid-range bite than a vintage P90, this pickup is designed to sound as you expect a great P90 should.
A good P90 is always an incredibly dynamic pickup, and the Full Monty is no exception; capable of everything from raucous overdrives to glassy clean tones, the Full Monty P90 is incredibly responsive to both the volume control and your pick attack. The lows are tight and punchy, the mids growl away happily, and the highs cut through. A set of these pickups into a cranked valve amp really is a profoundly pleasurable experience.
All of the HB-sized P90’s in our Turncoat Series are made in the same way as our regular P90s, making sure that the coil, magnet and polepieces are exactly the same shape, size and material. This ensures that our Humbucker-sized FM P90 doesn’t merely recreate the sound of its less traitorous sibling, but is actually the same pickup, the only functional difference being the footprint of the casing. In addition, the pickup covers are high-quality Nickel Silver. These covers have virtually no effect on the tone, so there’s no need to worry about any tone suck from the additional metalwork.
Monty’s Humbucker sized FM90s are wax potted, so you can use as much gain as you want without having to worry about any unwanted side effects.
