The Alnico Noiseless P90 Humbucker is the perfect pickup for those looking for a cleaner, more articulate tone in a Humbucker Cover. Even though we call it a P90, it’s not quite a P90: it has an airiness and sparkle not found with adjustable pole pieces. Also, it’s great for those looking to balance a dark guitar. You’ll find that this pickup stays clean, while still having a fat, beefy midrange and thickness commonly found with P90 pickups.
The Alnico Noiseless P90 Humbucker will not sound like a traditional P90, but one with a familiar Fender sparkle on the top-end. Clean and articulate when playing without distortion. You’ll find that the nuances of your playing will come out as this pickup “breathes” more than it’s compressed P90 counterpart. Chords have an excellent string-to-string definition, and single notes are round and warm. With distortion, you’ll find a breakup that is late and smooth with a familiar Fender Strat-type tone.
Our Alnico Noiseless P90 Humbucker features a pronounced midrange as well. You’ll find that the Alnico Hum-Cancelling P90 Humbucker will still sound fat and warm. The midrange is softer than a P90, but this pickup is fatter and warmer than our Big Single and Twangmaster.
Are you looking for more of a traditional P90 tone? You won’t find that here. This model features a more “Fender” quality to it. If you’re looking for a traditional P90 tone, check out our P90 and Hum Cancelling P90!

Hey John, as it turns out, we don't have any Gold-Plated magnets on hand. I apologize for the inconvenience. Tyler
I have a Les Paul standard and usually play in the middle position. How well would an alnico rod in the neck and a P90 noiseless in the bridge pair together?

Hey Tolu, they would pair together nicely! We overwind the Neck a bit more in this case to help them pair. Let us know in the Notes field on the checkout screen that both pickups are going together and we'll adjust the winding accordingly.
Hi, I purchased a set of Alnico noiseless P90 pups for my tele with a 52mm bridge pup. I wired it just like your diagram, before I even looked on your site to rectify my problem. The problem is it is acting like I reversed the polarity on one pup. "I didn't" unless it's wired wrong at the pup itself as the Black and braided leads are to ground and the white wires to the 3way switch. I have been playing, working and building guitars for 40+ years ...

Hey Jack, give us a call today at your convenience so we can talk through troubleshooting the pickup. I fear that there's a short in the Bridge pickup. If you have an ohm reader, please take a reading of the bridge pickup - it should read around 10K. If it reads close to half of that, we have a warranty that will cover the defective pickup.
Do these work fine as just a bridge pickup guitar, or do they have to be as a set?

Hey Hollie, you can certainly purchase the Bridge model only. We recommend selecting 2-Conductor lead just in case you need to reverse the phase down the road. - Tyler
Hi ! Just a question out of curiosity : I just noticed that on the set I received the magnets under the D string are beveled whereas the others are not, what is the reason/purpose to that ?

Hey Christophe, the beveled D is just how we designed the pickup for optimal tone and looks. Also, Lindy always likes to bevel a magnet the taller it gets.
