Based on the Eisenhower humbucker, and named after John F. Kennedy’s WWII Navy patrol boat, the PT-109 is overwound to 14K bridge and 9K neck for even, smooth overdrive when used with pedals and distortion.  Alnico 2 magnet in the bridge provides a bit of vintage character, creamy highs and loose lows.  Alnico 5 in the neck matches the output of the bridge and offers enhanced clarity.  A lot of “modern” high-output humbuckers are specifically designed to be sterile-sounding for heavy distortion, the PT-109 gives you a little bit of flavor for Sabbath-style riffage.  Of course, this pickup comes in all black, covered or open bobbins in 50mm spacing, but you can special order covers, bobbins, or custom spacing of your choice by contacting me.
