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.


  • 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)


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!



Fralin Pickups Alnico Rod P-90 Tonal Graph


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. What’s the String Spacing? 49.5mm (Standard), And we can make a 52mm Bridge as well.
  5. 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.
  6. Wiring Diagrams? Here!


The Alnico Noiseless P-90 uses Single Poly Nylon wire and USA-Made Alnico 5 Magnets.

The Stock Set of Alnico Noiseless P-90 reads 8.8K in the Neck and 10K in the Bridge. The outputs are compensated and all sets have matched volume.

    Wow – my Les Paul Junior wasn’t bad with the stock Gibson P90 but it was noisy and just a little thin on midrange. But with the Lindy Fralin Hum-cancelling P90 it has that beautiful snarl with gain and cleans up beautifully without. Lots of tone and no hum. This is now my go-to guitar.

    Purchased a new Gibson Les Paul Special TV Yellow 2019 model. Loved everything about this guitar except the Neck pickup. It was very dark and “moody” sounding. Tried making height adjustments but couldn’t get it to sound right. Decided to order a replacement Neck pickup. Initially went with the Seymour Duncan Antiquity but after installation it was out of phase, gladly the dealer took it back. I decided to call in Fralin Pickups for some guidance, I spoke to a Tyler and described what I was looking for; a more open sounding Neck pickup with nice sparkle, he suggested the Hum-Cancelling P90 with Alnico Rods. Upon installation I notice it was out of phase once again but then I just swapped the leads and voila! Exactly what I was looking for, sounds just like single coil with no hum. LOVE IT! I cannot recommend this pickup enough for the Neck position, it is just incredible. I’m extremely satisfied with the pickup and the customer service from Tyler.

    Super awesome, customer for life!
    These sound sooo good. Theres those noiseless P90s that lose the sparkle of the P90 because they’re essentially humbuckers, but these, especially with the alnico rods in, sound so crisp and exactly what I wanted. They are handwired so you know youre getting quality. AND I had a bit of a microphonic issue bc I ordered a nickel cover with it (thats gonna happen with any pickup with a nickel cover) so LINDY FRALIN himself called me to help me sort it out and within a half hour everything was right as rain. He even said if it didnt work out he would personally rewind it himself. Thats called pride in your craftsmanship. Excellent.

    Hum Cancelling P-90:
    If you’ve ever had issues with “taming” a P-90 pickup in a live setting, you need to try this Fralin pickup. I was amazed at how quiet it was in a live setting but more pleased with the sound quality. This pickup has classic P-90 growl, cleans up excellently with a twist of the volume knob and most of all maintains clarity with both settings. I highly recommend any of my P-90 brothers and sisters give this a whirl!

    Extra warm. Love the tone of this pick-up.

    These pickups rock. Awesome Pickups.

    I have a Fender Tele with a P90 in the Neck and Tele PU in the bridge but wasn’t pleased with the stock PU’s. After a lot of comparisons and research, I called Lindy for advice on what I was after and I ended up with the Alnico rod P90 and a hot output tele PU. I couldn’t have been more happy; the bridge was clear and powerful, with some girth, and the neck was fat and clear with that Fender chime. Lindy definitely knows tone!

  8. Scott Platts (verified owner)

    Fantastic, just like I expected
    I think your website description of this pickup is perfect. It does have more “Fender cleans”. With all the sparkle no one would ever know that it wasn’t single-coil except for the lack of hum. It sounds fabulous in my new Stonetree Roscoe Deluxe. Thank you so much.

    I love P-90 sound , this one is great!!!

    Great pickup clear jangle!

    P-90 Tele neck pickup replacement.
    What if you wanted the clarity and chime of a standard Tele neck single coil with some additional gain and beefy mids? Well this pickup is that and more. Matched with the Blues Special bridge pickup, the setting with both pickups on is a real bonus with the P-90. By itself, it can go from Grant Green to Peter Green with a twist of the volume or tone control. I imagine the pole magnets instead of screw polepieces might have contributed to the perfectly balanced EQ and range. Seriously thinking of replacing a couple of humbuckers with this pickup.

  12. Gary Gordon (verified owner)

    Hits the mark every time. I fit these into my SG Classic and a LPDC Special. Now I have the tone and expression I want without having to focus on 60 hz hum. I’ve got enough to manage during the sets.

    Benzville Guitars say thanks! We used Split Blades and Alnico Rod Hum-Cancelling P90s on two of our latest builds and we are excited. All the twang, zero noise and even able to handle high gain. We will definitely recommend these Pickups to our Customers whenever we can to use in our custom build guitars.

    Unbelievable pickup! Typical P90 felt a little dark and heavy in the mids, and almost too different from the tele bridge where the guitar lost it’s identity a bit. I talked with Lindy and he helped me figure out what I was looking for. This is really more of a beefy single coil with P90 character. Nice mids, not as angry as a typical P90, but just an incredible high end. The aggression and brightness is so touch sensitive, I can get just about as much brightness as I want using the right attack or really tame it. It’s kind of it’s own thing, I’m in love. Both my neck and middle positions are so much fun to play now, feels like my guitar just became 3 in 1, very versatile pickup. If you’re someone who wants that 100% P90 character, grit, mid aggression it might not be for you, but if you’re someone who wants P90 flavor but misses the high end and ALSO doesn’t like the noise of a P90, this is it!!! Stop your research and get this in your guitar.
