Featuring a clear neck and an overwound bridge, our P90s have that undeniable thick Single-Coil tone with a distinct wound string, and percussive treble string. The midrange is full, thick, and warm – perfect for adding depth to your guitar.

Whether playing clean or dirty, we guarantee the “3-dimensional depth” that the Fralin P90 provides will inspire you for years to come. Single notes are punchy and clear without sounding tinny, and chords break up with a tight compression that’s guaranteed to push your amp.
And with a hand-wound scatter-wound coil, your pickup is as unique as you are – each coil features a subtly unique voice that will undoubtedly inspire you. Experience what you’ve been missing and give your guitar the P90 voice it was meant to have with the Fralin P90.
It all starts here: our manufacturing process allows us to achieve unparalleled quality control. Lindy Fralin’s P90 in a Humbucker Cover consists of a precision injection mold and USA-Made Steel Screws. We use USA-Made Alnico 4 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. This winding technique gives our pickups a sweet, clear tone. Finally, we wax-pot the pickup to and prevent microphonics and preserve the pickup for years to come.

Hey Steven, any standard humbucker will work just fine. Just pay attention to your string spacing. If you want a traditional P90 tone, this is a great choice. We also have it in a hum-cancelling version.

Hey Mark, we don't have the covers, bobbins, or baseplates to make the P90 Humbucker in an F-Spaced version - we apologize for the inconvenience.
I have a 3-pickup guitar currently with humbuckers and would like to put in p-90s. Do you make a set of three with slightly increasing output moving from neck pickup, to middle pickup, and then to the bridge? Or do you have a recommendation?

Hey Uri, we normally recommend (2) Neck outputs (one for the middle) and (1) Bridge output - thanks for your question!
Can you please suggest the best humbucker sized bridge pickup to create as much tele twang as possible in a PRS Studio nearfield guitar? The guitar has a fixed bridge and has a dark tone overall. Thank you!

Hey Jeff, I'd recommend the Twangmaster (if you can accomodate 50mm string spacing at your bridge) or the Sunbucker (Available in multiple sizes).
hey, can you guys put a gibson quick connect on one of your humbucker sized p-90s?
Q hey, can you guys put a gibson quick connect on one of your humbucker sized p-90s?A
Hey Mike, as it turns out, we do not offer the Quick Connect system - actually, we recommend removing it altogether as while it does make swapping pickups easier, you are putting a plastic connection where a soldered connection should be. Upgrading to a soldered harness would be the best upgrade for your tone and reliability.
As usual, great sounding pickups. Put them in an ESP Eclipse CTM with a JB/59 and it’s tremendous. Quacks in the middle, great sounding neck and bridge. Perfect upgrade for any relatively inexpensive used guitar!
Above and beyond! From clean to crunch the P90 humbuckers rekindled a love for my StingRay RS. Super satisfied with the range of tones I can get.
Unbelievable but Lindy did it!!! I have a vintage les Paul special with P 90’s … fantastic tone .. I put a set of the raw nickel covered humbucker size P90 in another guitar I have and I’m telling you in blind fold test I’m not sure anybody can pick which is which … Customer service is as good as it can get !!! Fralin Rocks!!!!
Great Pickups, Great Service
Great sound! Exactly what I was looking for.
Fantastic upgrade to the p90’s in my Les Paul. Bright without being shrill, big and full but not muddy. Fantastic customer service as well. Thanks so much!
Brought back to life!
Changed out the Humbuckers in my fender FSR custom Telecaster with a -5% and stock wind f/b respectively. PIckups created response and clarity like no other. With the amp on the edge of a breakup a little volume knob roll-off cleans up without loss of volume. Loved the action of the guitar but the tone was uninspiring because the original pickups were wound hot and had little dynamic range; these brought new life to my guitar. Tons of tone, clarity, and sensitivity to boost any playing style. Black chrome covers on a black guitar….stunning!! Thanks for making a great product!!!
Fralin dogear P90: The pickup sounds clear from bass to treble. Kinda like the best P90 I’ve heard for awhile. Thanks, Gerald.
I love these pickups! I ordered stock output for both bridge and neck. It’s super mellow, very articulate, and howling with a bit of overdrive added in. Thanks Fralin Pickups!
Wow! I love these pickups! Thanks Lindy + Team! They were a perfect drop-in replacement for humbuckers. The tone is amazing, and I couldn’t be happier!
It’s not exactly a P-90 and it’s not a humbucker, but it’s all single-coil, big fat sonic mojo. This is my second one. I used the first in the studio for my main slide tones in “The Paul” and I have this one on my touring semi-hollow body. It’s more predictable than my traditional P90 and it’s a great single-coil choice if you don’t want to start digging into your Les Paul like a jabroni. Seriously, it’s become one of my favorite tones both live and in the studio. These are an under-appreciated concept and Fralin hits the mark better than other similar choices I’ve tried -Adam Joad
