I was playing both my guitars today and just realized how utterly weak sounding my G400 is, so I was thinking that I'd like something a bit different and I'd like a P90 kind of sound. How does the SD PhatCat sound? Also, there's a cheaper humbucker sized P90 on eBay called a Catswhisker Phat Moggy, anyone heard of / used these pickups before?

Found this site: http://www.catswhiskerpickups.co.uk/11.html

Any other suggestions for a good, hard rock / alt rock pickup?

bareknuckle Pickups make a p90 humbucker sized called the mississippi queen. Matt bellamy uses it rock out frequently.

Are BKP really £20 better than SD? Yes I know I'm cheap, but I'm going to uni in september so cheaper is good

Unfortunately this thread is not about giant pics of things I can't make out because giant pic is giant!

$35 will get you a Mean 90 from Guitar Fetish, which is a humbucker sized p-90. I have one and I really like it, never tried a Phat cat but im very pleased with the Mean 90

All i hear is that there very good! I really want some, and i do agree that they are pricey!

Maybe it's time for me to stop being a cheapskate and get something nice. Only trouble is, the pickup will cost pretty much half as much as the guitar did! Although if it is really nice I suppose I can flip it over to my main guitar and put the LP pickup into the SG

^ If you mean eBay from USA, by the time I've paid shipping & customs & VAT then I'll have paid pretty much the same as I would for 2nd hand SD's

I'm curious about the Mean 90s too. I like my G400, save for the pickups.

GFS should ship to the UK, I just ordered 2 guitar kits and a stack of parts to Aus. They shipped quickly, no questions. Tracking says they're almost here. Keen to know what all the fuss is about.

Talk to rockmonkeyguitars.com. They custom wind them for you, I believe they are in the UK. UGers get 10% off. Talk to corderoyEW, he is a UGer that works there. I think I spelled cords name wrong, but I'm close.
