The P90 Ethos with more power!
The Trawlermen are a little twist we’ve developed on the popular Late 50s model that’s really pulling up trees in its humbucker form. The original model has been incredibly well received by jazz players looking for that little more authenticity from their tone, but it’s left some of us mere mortals feeling a little cold. The makeup on the L50s is so specialized, we wanted to make something a little more accessible, a little less demanding, and so in a first for the company, we’re actually producing a pickup in house here in the UK!
And, for the finishing touches, we’ve not strayed far from original P90 and Humbucker design – fitting the popular braided metal/waxed cloth wire that’s so simple to use, and mounted everything onto another Nickel / German silver base to limiting any unwanted interference on the magnetic eddy currents.
All in all, they might not be historically correct, the might not be hum-bucking, but they really are a beautiful “guitarists guitar” pickup – giving that characteristic P90 snap and twang from the most unlikely guitars.
Great for anyone who likes Classic Rock and hot blues, where your looking to avoid too much of the rasping top end you'd associate with a more modest P90.
