The basic building blocks of a 290 are a slab mahogany body, mahogany neck, wraptail or tune-o-matic bridge coupled with killer sounding P90s - in this case, Throbak 52/54's.
They're full of chime, midrange snarl, gorgeous cleans or Marshall half-stack ready overdriven tones. Think of them as the best of both worlds - the middle ground between a Fender-style single coil and a Gibson humbucker. They are indeed single coils, but they have more body - oomph if you will - and output than a Strat or Tele. They also have a much more forward midrange response but never get as bloated or heavy handed as some humbuckers. Truth be told, they're our favorite style of pickup. Try them out, you'll see...single coil clarity with the girth and punch of a humbucker. What's not to love?
