Hum-Cancelling P90 With Alnico Rods
The Alnico Rod Hum-Cancelling P90 is a brighter, more “Fender-like” sounding version of our best-selling Hum Cancelling P90. It has more top-end sparkle and a cleaner tone with enhanced articulation. Furthermore, it still retains a loud and beefy midrange. As always, this pickup has no hum!

Hum-Cancelling P90 With Alnico Rods FEATURES:
The Hum-Cancelling P90 with Alnico Rods is the perfect pickup for those looking for a cleaner, more articulate P90 pickup. 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.
Even though we are calling this pickup a P90, it’s not quite a P90. P90s are known for a snarly midrange and a stiffer top end. The Alnico Noiseless P90 is softer, cleaner, and has that ‘sparkle’ that you’re familiar with! This pickup is available in all our Soapbar and Dogear versions.
- Alnico Rods for a Fender-type sparkle
- Soapbar / Dogear construction
- Hum-free design for completely noiseless operation
- 49.5mm Standard Spacing, with an option for 52mm Bridges (Black & Cream Soapbar only)
- Wound with USA-Made 42 Gauge SPN Wire
- Backed by our 10 Year Warranty against manufacturing defects
- Wax Potted to prevent microphonics and corrosion
- 30-day Risk-Free exchange policy
The Alnico Noiseless P-90 will sound like a regular P90, but 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. With distortion, you’ll find a smooth, late breakup with a familiar Fender Strat-type tone. Expect a clear pick attack and a warmer midrange.
This midrange of this pickup is pronounced as well. You’ll find that the Alnico Noiseless P90 will still sound fat and beefy!
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 Scott, as it turns out, all we have are Dogear P90 Covers for a curved top guitar. It won't work on a flat-top guitar.
Hello friends, I just got a Guild T50 slim with a P90 pickup of the dog ear type on the neck position. Of course, there is a lot of hum. Will the Lindy Fralin hum cancelling dog ear fit? the distance between the mounting screws is 97 mm and the hight of the pickup is 12 mm. Thanks for your reply and kind regards.

Hey Roberto, yes, our pickup should fit fine. I'm measuring 97mm from mounting hole to mounting hole, and our plastic covers are 6mm high. You should have a shim included that would work with our pickup. If you needed another one, the correct size would be the 0.225" shim we offer.
Hi. I have a tele loaded with your stock set. I'm wondering if a hum cancelling p90 Alnico can be swapped in the neck without too much issue (other than the routing, of course). Do I need to be thinking about new pots? Is there a big output difference that I should be aware of? Will the middle position be usable? I see that you recommend pairing those p90s with a higher output tele bridge pickup, hence the question. I saw an instagram post from J...

Hey Josh, the Hum Cancelling P90 with Alnico Rods sounds best on a 500K pot, and is significantly more output than the Stock Tele. That said, I'd think a Twangmaster (Stock Output) is your ideal choice as it's ideal on 250K Pots and will balance better. The tone of the two pickups is very similar.
Greetings. I'm planning on switching out the single (neck) pickup in a thinline ES-125 clone with a hum-cancelling P90, intending to play bebop with it. I generally prefer the softer output of an Alnico pickup [ https://www.fralinpickups.com/product/hum-cancelling-p-90-alnico-rods/ ] and roll off the top end for a jazzy tone, but would the other (neodymium) hum-cancelling dogear P90 [ https://www.fralinpickups.com/product/p90-hum-cancelling/ ] be...

Hey Allan, personally, I prefer the Neodymium Hum Cancelling P90 over the Alnico for Jazz. It offers a rounder tone on the treble strings and a warmer midrange. The Alnico sounds more like an overwound Strat pickup, and while it sounds great, is to my ears, not ideal for jazz. That said, if you go with the Alnico model, the 250K pots will warm it up - not in a bad way.

Great tone in my Yamaha Revstar. Extra chime in the neck pickup (love it!) and no piercing highs from the bridge.
I put these in a cheap Fender Bullet Strat and it is now my go to Ax! I absolutely love these pickups. P90 looks with Fender sparkle is right. These aren’t as dark as a vintage P90 but they have that P90 growl I like. They also clean up excellently and keep that Fender sparkle which is why I purchased them.
