Nowhere are the intrinsic benefits of Fluence technology more up front and apparent then when applied to the P90.

Unlike stacked “humbucker” P90 variants which can actually aggravate certain problems while curing others, the noise, the acoustic feedback, the hum, the inductance issues caused by guitar cables, amp and effect inputs… with Fluence, all of it is eliminated, leaving pure, unadulterated, Multi-Voice tone.

With the success of his Signature Gristle-Tone pickup set for Telecaster® guitars, it was no surprise when Greg came asking to explore the possibilities of Fluence technology applied to the P90. Like his Fluence Gristle-Tone Tele® set, Greg’s Signature Series P90s are deeply rooted in tradition, and then un-rooted in sounds that only Greg can conjure – satisfying all of Greg’s lascivious P90 needs!

The phenomenon that is Gristlemaster Greg Koch is the result of his monster talent and king-sized personality colliding with a mix of musical styles, guitars, and of course, pickups – to achieve the sounds in his head.
