Hum-Cancelling P90 – Humbucker FEATURES:

The Fralin Hum Cancelling P90 is one of the best-selling models we make, and it’s easy to see why. Genuine P90 tone and dead-quiet performance? What’s not to love?

Whether you play Rock, Jazz, Country, R&B, or Funk, you will undoubtedly stand out in the mix with the pronounced pick attack, crystal-clear lows, and round highs. And the best part? Zero hum, with Humbucker looks! Available in multiple cover options, you can rest assured knowing you can get the Fralin P90 tone in any guitar you have, with the looks you desire.

  • Noiseless P90 operation with Gibson® Humbucker Size
  • Lindy Fralin Original Design: True P90 Tone, No Hum
  • Multiple Outputs available for fine-tuning your Pickup’s voice
  • Strong and bold – lots of midrange and snarl
  • USA-made Neodymium Magnets for aggressive tone and output
  • Compensated Bridge for even volume across all pickups
  • Adjustable USA-Made Steel Pole pieces for fine-tuning string balance
  • Hand-wound with our “Sectioning” technique for unique, dynamic tone
  • Hand-built for unrivaled quality control
  • Backed by our 10-Year Warranty on manufacturing defects
  • Risk-Free 30-day exchange policy


There are a few ways to cancel out the hum in a pickup. Some manufacturers feature a “stacked” coil design, which we believe leads to a lifeless and dull tone that lacks character. Lindy’s Hum Cancelling P90 features a Side-by-side coil design that is not stacked and attains a more accurate P90 tone that actually sounds like a P90.

Expect a vintage-voiced P90 tone, with a slightly thicker midrange and rounder highs. This pickup will undoubtedly push your amp hard and provide that snarly midrange and top-end “bark” we have come to expect from a P90. Suitable for many music styles, this pickup can scream and clean up nicely for jazz or blues.

Going even further, you can customize your tone by selecting Overwound and Underwound options. By overwinding a pickup, the tone gets thicker, darker, and dirtier. By underwinding a pickup, the pickup gets clearer and more articulate.

Speaking of versatility, are you looking for a jazzier tone? We can use Alnico 6 Magnets to taper the highs even more and offer you a softer sound. Are you searching for a cleaner and more Fender sparkle? Check out our Alnico Rod Version that features Alnico Rods for a Fender-type sparkle.

Listen to our friend Mike Hermans play our Hum Cancelling P90, only in a soapbar format. Same guts, different looks.

Our manufacturing process allows us to achieve unparalleled quality control.

Hum-Cancelling P90s consists of 100% USA-Made parts, including a precision injection mold, USA-Made Steel Screws, and Neodymium magnets. We use aggressive USA-Made Neodymium magnets to make this model scream. Each bobbin is carefully inspected and cleaned before winding.

We wind each pickup by hand, one at a time, using our proprietary “Sectioning” technique, which gives the pickup a sweet, clear tone. Finally, we wax-pot the pickup to prevent microphonics and preserve the pickup for years to come.

Gibson Braided Lead:

2-Conductor With Shield
Gibson Braided Lead - Use on Gibson-Style Instruments only, where each pickup has it's own respective volume and tone pot. Do not select this lead on Fender-style instruments, unless the instrument is wired like a Gibson, like a Telecaster Deluxe. This lead is non-reversible.

    I put one of your hum canceling P90 pickups on a Godin Composer, 5th Avenue Guitar and now at a little higher volume it distorts, which is unlike another P90 I got from you that I put on a different guitar. Could this distortion be caused by the original pots on the guitar? Should I change out the pots?

    Hey Fred, you can go with Gibson lead actually - and since these pickups are hum-cancelling by default, you don't need any RW / RP - they will cancel hum in all positions.

    Hey Tony, our Hum Cancelling P90 is a standard Gibson Humbucker size, it will fit perfectly.

    Awesome sounding pickup!

  2. Alberto Alemán
    Verified Buyer

    I put these in a Wildwood Select 2020 Gibson Les Paul Standard 60s. The original humbuckers, to my ear, sounded a bit dark and muddy. Now with these P-90s the guitar SMOKES!

    Love it.

  3. Timothy Osborne
    Verified Buyer

    I’ve been playing guitar for about 30 years now. I can honestly say I’ve not had this much fun in a long time just playing. This pickup (I purchased the bridge) is so organic and open, cleans up well, and has an Amazing overdriven tone. I’ve had it for over a month and I’m still blown away. I told myself no more guitars this year, but I want another project guitar just to drop in a set of these now!

  4. Joe Bouchard

    Excellent pickups. Installing them on my Gibson 336 was easy. They are perfect, quiet and add that bit of snap and brightness that I was missing on the original pickups. Thanks for a great product.

  5. Max Cohen
    Verified Buyer

    These are incredible! My guitar has never sounded better- the feeling is more dynamic, cleaner, fuller, all the good adjectives.

  6. Craig Terrones
    Verified Buyer

    I love these pickups!

    I installed a Hum-Cancelling P-90 in the bridge and a P-92 in the neck of an Epiphone LP. The pickups sound open, clear and detailed when the settings on the amp and guitar are dialed back. Turn up the volume and things start getting interesting — a little bite and attitude, but still clear. Add gain to the amp and an overdrive pedal and they get dirty, even filthy, without losing definition when strumming a chord. The sound is exactly what I was looking/hoping for.

    The pickups are definitely worth the price and the wait time for delivery.

  7. Thomas Preble
    Verified Buyer

    These are fantastic pick-ups; they went into a Gibson ES 339, and boy, what a difference in the sound. Played thru my”95 Matchless lightning 15 or a Carr Mini Mercury, I am in tone heaven, Now, I have your pick-ups in 3 of my guitars (Tele, Strat & Les Paul) and can’t say enough about them, But, the P-90’s are something else, It’s hard to put the guitar down because it sounds so good!, Lindy hit it out of the ball park with these guys.

  8. Drew Wheeler
    Verified Buyer

    I love these pickups. I put them in a T-style partscaster (replacing a set of Duncan P-Rails) and a Yamaha RS620, and they’re damn near perfect to my ears. They cover everything from sweet articulate cleans to grinding metal adjacency, and they’re dead quiet. 5% overwind on the bridge, and .0022mfd tone cap (that’s not an extra zero – it’s one step up from the magic cap, and I’m digging it).

  9. Nathan Foley
    Verified Buyer

    Buy them.
