P-PUK8XPickup - Kent Armstrong, Custom Series, Stealth 90, P-90

Single P-90 pickup with a nickel-plated metal cover. This new revolutionary design gives the sweet, warm chime and tone of the original P-90 pickup without all that annoying 60 cycle hum. Read the forums on this HP-90 pickup and don't let the high resistance fool you. Making its debut at the 2012 summer NAMM show, this design uses the hum-cancelling properties of opposing coils but defies the normal high output that would accompany similar resistance designs. Available in both bridge and neck positions so you can create a proper calibrated set and in black and cream plastic as well as real metal covers in black, chrome, gold and nickel plating! If you love P-90s and want to forget about not being able to use your favorite guitar because of lighting and power issues you simply have to get into a set of new Stealth 90 pickups. Recommended wiring includes using a 500K Ohm pot for volume, 250K Ohm pot for tone and a .022 capacitor as these are humbucking pickup designs.
