Hello, all. I was wondering if there are any companies that combine two P-90s in a humbucker-style way that creates a square-shaped pickup that works as one pickup. I just thought it would be an interesting tone.

I got the idea after seeing Matt Bellamy playing one of his Mansons with two P-90s right next to each other.

If there are any testimonials about something like this, or if nobody makes any, there must be a reason why.

It would be much bigger than regular humbuckers, so it would fit only in "swimming pool" cavities of regular guitars. That's why manufacturers don't produce them. But that seems an interesting idea sound-wise.

Yeah thanks guys - I just am on the lookout for a unique tone, but not one that sounds shocking. I bought a GFS brass trem block recently - perhaps I'll have to head back there soon.

Love the advice guys!

The guy claims each coil of this humbucker is wound like a P90. I have no experience with the pickups or the company, but it seems like just what you're looking for.
