Andy Powell is guitarist and original member of the british rockband Wishbone Ash.
The Andy Powell Custom Beef ist the result of my cooperation with Rock Legend, Andy Powell of Wishbone Ash fame. For many years Andy used my HB 59 but wanted more “beef ” and more juice. The result is this wonderful pickup! The HB AP Custom Beef does not, just to make things clear, have any more power than a regular HB 59, it just delivers a thicker more meaty tone. This makes the pickup a natural choice for SGs and Flying Vs that have thinner bodies than a Les Paul. The AP Custom Beef compensates the lack of the mass in these thinner guitars. Andy was thrilled, as was I, and since then this powerful Humbucker has been available for all those looking for more “beef ” to feed to their rock tones.
