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!

It looks like the hum cancelling P90 with alnico rods is set up for a plain G, i.e. the G pole-piece is lower than the D. Can the pickup be set up for a wound G, for a jazz player with heavier strings? The G pole-piece would have to be highest of all. Also, is it possible to adjust pole-piece height at all? Thank you for your consideration.

Hey Micheal, thanks for your question. We can make both the D and G strings the same height - in my experience, that balances out the G string on wound string sets. If you'd like to order that, simply use the "notes" field on the checkout screen to request it - we'll make it to order.
Hi. A couple more questions: I need to route my Tele for the soap bar version of this neck pickup (hum canceling P90 w/Alnico rods). I see the outer dimensions of the plastic soap bar on the grapic, but can you tell me the route depth? Also, if I want to use a Tele that is already routed a bit wider and a bit deeper than the soap bar cover dimension, does that pose a problem? I assume not for the width since it's all covered by a pickguard, but n...

Hey Doug, we'd recommend a minimum of 1" depth.
Hi, I have a Korean made Epiphone Riviera with mini-humbuckers which I’d like to replace with dogear p90s. I’m a bit confused about size - obviously I’ll need to get new pickup slots cut for the p90s but which size pickup should I order, the short dogear or the standard?

Hey David, a quick look at your guitar seems like the Short Dogear model will work best. Select Short Dogear if you have a carved top guitar where the neck slightly slants back towards you when holding the guitar in a playing position.
I have a Gibson 50s tribute Les Paul and love the stock P90s but they are noisy. What would be a comparable hum cancelling replacement set that is close to the stock set?
- In the sound clips on the P90 Alnico Rods page the first soundcloud clip says P90 Alnico Rod (Strat) and the second clip adds Hum-Canceling. I'm guessing that means the first clip is from a Strat shaped pickup. I loved that sound. After 100+ gigs with a recently acquired 2002 PRS Custom 22 Soapbar (3 pickup), I'm tired of fighting with the muddy sound of what I have been told are Seymour Duncan p90s with ceramic magnets. Does that P90 Strat p/u c... Read more

Hey Glenn, the sound clip in question featured the Hum Cancelling P90 Alnico pickups in a Strat, so, if you have a strat routed for P90s, these will work just fine!
