Johnny P(90) Good 

Adreas Kloppmann began working on guitars in the mid ‘80’s, during that time Andreas collected data from every pickup which passed his workbench. In the ‘90’s Andreas improved the analysis methods to further understand pickups and with the assistance of artists such as Thomas Blug, Jürgen Attig and Peter Weihe he discovered which frequencies found in specific pickup tones corresponded with which famous guitar tones he loved such as Hendrix, Hank Marvin and Pastorius.

Based on this ever developing knowledge, Kloppmann can now analyse the sound of a pickup from its data and decide what its ideal purpose is as well as replicate our favourite tones from musical history.

With strong harmonics they drive the mids but also have a cool twang to the bass strings. These pickups were inspired by legends of ´50s Rock´n´Roll such as Scotty Moore, Chuck Berry, Carl Perkins, Muddy Waters, Hubert Sumlin who all used guitars with P 90s.
