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!

Dogear Shims

Ideally, your strings should be 1/8 inch on the bass side and 1/16 on the treble side. If you need additional height, shims are available!

Pickguard-Mounted Soapbar?

Most Soapbar Pickups are height-adjusted with screws that thread into the body.

Some Soapbar Pickups are mounted on the pickguard via a screw on either side. (Les Paul Junior Tribute, Soapbar-equipped SG’s) Check this box if your guitar requires this modification. You’ll get 2 tabs to slip on the mounting tabs for threading your screws. Available in Standard Spacing Only.

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.


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!

Check out the comparison between a regular Hum Cancelling P90 and the Alnico Rod P90:



  • What’s the tonal difference between this and your Hum-Cancelling P90? The Hum-Cancelling P90 is slightly louder, darker, and thicker. This pickup will sound not as much like a P90, more like a Fender pickup.
  • What lead do I choose? This depends on your guitar and a few other things. Gibson Lead: Go with this if installing a set into a Gibson-style instrument, where each pickup has its respective volume pot. 2-Conductor: Go with this lead if buying a Single, or installing into a Fender-style instrument.
  • What Pot Value do you recommend with this pickup? We recommend 500K pots, but 250K will work well if you want a darker, jazzier tone.
  • What’s the String Spacing? 49.5mm (Standard), And we can make a 52mm Bridge as well.
  • How far away from the strings does the pickup need to be? Push your Low E String down at the highest fret. Measure from the top of the pole piece to the bottom of the string. The ideal starting location should be 1/8″ on the bass string, and 1/16″ on the treble string when the High E string is pushed down at the highest fret.

    I have an Epiphone Century reissue. Fully hollow, 12″ radius, 25.5 in scale! It’s a weird combo that I LOVE. Stock pickup was “meh”. Played another big company’s hum-canceling dogear for a while. It was “fine” but muddy. Then I found this baby. It’s super sensitive (like a microphonic pickup but it’s not microphonic) and bright and silky. It sounds hyper-real and I LOVE it.

    Beyond expectations.

    My first time trying these pickups (bridge and neck) with a formulated expectation of Alnico polepiece tones, hum-canceling quietness, and P90 characteristics. After installing them, there are a lot more than I expected. The clarity, sparkle, and tone spectrum added to my initial expectations. I am glad I bought these.

    Beyond expectations.
    Was formulating an anticipated sonic expectation combining all the ingredients of Alnico polepieces, hum-cancelling arrangement and P90 characteristics. I was surprised after installing them. All that I anticipated were present but more !!! The top end crispness, the round mids, the clarity when played clean and the crunch when driven all adds up to how good these pickups are.

    Chimey, yet deep, and velvet across the mids. Simply, a very pretty sound in the neck position. In the neck position this will produce a big chimey round humless sound without a hint of mud. It’s remarkable, and sounds beautiful.
