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 Gibson-Spacing only.

All P90. No Hum.

We all love the sound of a P-90 Pickup. You can find traditional P90 “Scream” on countless records. Many guitarists rely on a P90 to give them that aggressive, versatile tone. It’s Rock & Roll, Jazz, R&B, Funk, Blues, and Country all rolled into one. The only problem with the P90 is the hum – and we’ve taken care of that problem for you. Our hum-canceling P-90 Replacements give you all P90 tone, without the hum. Join countless guitarists and discover why our Hum-Cancelling P90 was our best-selling pickup of 2017 and 2018.

SoundSOUND:

Fralin Stock Set of Hum-Cancelling P-90 Replacements are like our regular Fralin P-90’s, only thicker, darker, and with no hum. You can expect a thick, darker, round bottom-end, and a rounder, less aggressive top-end, with a clear, fat midrange in-between. Our hum-canceling P-90 still has that undeniable thick Single-Coil tone that you love, only with no hum at all. Single notes have a punchy, compressed sonic footprint and have great sustain. Chords break up nicely with slight compression and excellent note separation. The Output is almost identical to our Stock P-90’s, and they sound incredibly similar – just a little thicker in the midrange. Fralin Hum-Cancelling P-90 Replacements offer undeniable clarity and definition while remaining strong, fat, thick, and punchy. Need a jazzier tone? We can use Alnico 6 Magnets. Want a cleaner and more Fender sparkle? Check out our Alnico Rod Version.

Our manufacturing process allows us to achieve unparalleled quality control. Hum-Cancelling P90s consist of a precision injection mold and USA-Made Steel Screws. 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. Each pickup is wound using our proprietary “Sectioning” technique. This gives the pickup a sweet, clear tone. Finally, we wax-pot the pickup to preserve the pickup and prevent microphonics.

 

 


FAQFAQS:

  1. What’s the tonal difference between this and your Stock P90? The Hum-Cancelling P90 is slightly louder, darker, and thicker. It’s quicker to break up, and has no hum!
  2. What output do I choose? Our most popular set is the Stock Neck & Bridge. Going with a +5% output from Stock will thicken and darken the tone. Going with a -5% will clean up and reduce the midrange, making it sound more articulate and clear.
  3. 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.
  4. What’s the String Spacing? 49.5mm.
  5. I don’t see what I’m looking for? We can do some custom work, for sure. However, we’re not tooled-up for certain things, like Nickel Dogear Covers. Contact us if you’re not seeing something you’re looking for.
  6. 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. 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 highest fret.

    Absolutely unreal! The luthier that put them in for me fell in love with them. He called the bridge pickup “Filthy!” in the best way possible. The 2019 Les Paul I put them just came alive. Kudos!

    I received a set of these Hum Canceling P90’s in my Novo Serus J a few months ago. Honestly, at first …. I was really kinda bummed that Dennis and crew had stopped using the Amalfitano P90’s in their guitars as I was addicted to them. They were the best P90’s that I had ever owned/played in my short electric guitar playing career(8 years). I figured worst case scenario, I could sell the Fralin’s and contact Jerry to get a set of his made to go in the Novo if I ended up not liking them as much …… BUT ….. I don’t see that EVER happening. These Hum Canceling P90’s flat out ROCK and are dead silent!!! That was my only complaint ever about P90’s was the noise and how Lindy managed to pull off a silent P90 that still sounds like and reacts like a P90 is suppose to is beyond me …. but I am very grateful he did! This has turned into my #1 electric and honestly the first guitar I’ve owned that I don’t see myself changing a single thing out electronic wise(which is normally the first thing I do to a guitar). So, a big THANK YOU goes out to all at the Fralin company!!! Job well done!!!

    All I can say is WOW, what a difference. I have a 2015 Gibson Les Paul Special DC with P-90’s stock. I thought it sounded pretty decent. I purchased the hum canceling p-90’s stock. Like I said WOW I pushed my pedal board to the side couldn’t believe how much better it sounded. Blown away. So worth what I paid. Great customer service. Top shelf

    This is everything I wanted!
    I’m probably not the traditional Fralin customer. I play punk with lots of gain, but I care about my tone. This pickup ticks all of the boxes. I don’t have the annoying feedback and buzz from my old P-90. I also got the over wind so the breakup is much sooner meaning I don’t have to run as much gain. It is still a P-90, so I cut through the mix like I’m playing a Telecaster through a Twin Reverb on 10. Thanks so much for the amazing product. I will be getting one of your PAF’s next.

    Lindy thank you for this pickup. I have your pickups in all my guitars and these P90s might just be my favorite. I don’t know what your secret is but to anyone that hasn’t heard: image the best sounding P90 guitar from one your of favorite albums and then remove the hum, that’s it. I replaced the stock P90s in a Gibson SG with these about a year ago and I still can’t put the guitar down. Every time I play it, I get a big smile on my face from the sound coming out of these pickups. As with all Fralin pickups, there is no sweet spot on your volume or tone controls, the sweet spot is everywhere. You can’t get a bad sound out these pickups. If you’re thinking about trying these pickups, just do it. You won’t regret it. One recommendation: try these out with a treble cut and bass cut tone circuit like on a G&L or Reverend.

    Overall, good!

    While I feel maybe a little something was lost from switching from the classic “noisy ” P90 that was in my Les Paul before. I am overall pleased. The small compromise in sound is not enough to make me want to go back to the old ones. It sounds very close. When I a/b it with a normal Gibson PAF the difference is huge. More bite, clarity and versatile tone. Equally suited for “Tele” style country picking, heavier rock, rockabilly, and blues. These pickups allow me to be all over the map stylistically without switching guitars and the best part is they are as quiet as a PAF.

    Wow!!
    This P90 with the 5% overwound spec(noise canceling) is just ridiculous!! Placed it in my 2011 TV Yellow Jr and now that guitar blows away most of my higher end LPs!! Can I just say WOW all over again?!?

    Hum-Cancelling P90 “No 60 Cycle Hum”d
    I could not be any happier with my Hum-Cancelling P90s!!! I have never owned P90s that did not hum. Some worse that others. I can turn my amp up and there is no hum at all. That is great….but don’t forget why we like the P90s….that punchy growl is there. They sound awesome!

    My Epiphone Casino’s 50th birthday present..
    Lindy, your amazing hum-obliterating P90 was the present I gave to my very best guitar friend in the world. In 1968 my father gave me a lovely Epiphone Casino, a single-pickup E230T. It has been with me now for 50 years and plays like the day I got her. But the original P-90 was, lets say, noisy. To honor her 50th year I selected your hum-cancelling P-90 as the pickup to replace the original and was incredibly happy with the results. I has all the depth and bite of the original and is deadly quiet. It also enhances the “acoustic” sound of the Casino’s open body. I play big band jazz and it’s a now a very nice alternative to my Ibanez ’85 AR-350 (post-lawsuit ES-175 copy). You have given new life to my very most special guitar and I can’t thank you enough. I’d be glad to send a photo and a little video if you are interested. Mark Loveless, Portland, OR.

    This pickup has an excellent P90 tone with none of the noise. True single coil P90’s are probably the noisiest pickups ever designed, but not these Fralin noiseless P90’s… they have all of the “goodness”, punch, and grind of a great single coil P90, but they are dead silent. I have a stock wind neck and a +5% wind bridge Fralin noise canceling P90 in a Guild Bluesbird, and that guitar went from “nice” to REALLY astounding!! A VERY highly recommended pickup!!

    I love P90s but hate the hum. I’m not sure how Lindy does it, but these sound like an awesome P90 without the hum. I only wish I had more guitars routed for a P90.

    Ive tried a lot of different pickups–Gibson’s, Dimarzio’s, Seymour Duncan, Lollar’s – but this pickup is by far my favorite. I’m extremely pleased with it and will be purchasing more. Glad I tried it! Has a crystal clear sound, tight distortion, and very well balanced. Highly recommend.

    Fralin hum cancelling P-90s are my favorite pickups. Bought them for a backup guitar which became my go-to instrument once they were put in. By far the clearest most responsive low E sound I’ve had. Even on the neck pickup it doesn’t get mushy. Plus they are hum cancelling which is really important as several places I play have neon signs, questionable electric, etc. I can use all pickup positions now wherever I play and get great P-90 tone. If you’re looking for a hum cancelling pickup that has more beef than a single coil and more snap/articulation than a humbucker give these a try.

    Great Replacement. I bought your hum-cancelling P90 to replace the original pickup in my 1965 Gibson ES-125T. The pickup was an exact fit. I love the tone and the lack of hum.

    Articulate, docile, and ferocious! All in one!
    I replaced the stock pu that came in my Reverend Sensei Jr. with this, as the original pu sounded pretty good but was very microphonic. I am super happy with the results. I can nail just about any sound I want, as the Sensei has a treble roll off knob and a bass roll off knob. It is easy to get a clean hi-fi sound with rich solid bass and the right amount of mids’ and hi’s. Equally easy to find is great crunch by running the volume up a bit. Pinch harmonics pop right out. Just a great all round pickup for a guitar with only one. Thanks guys!

    Best P-90 on the Market! I am absolutely thrilled with the set I purchased. They replaced three Gibson stock P-90s and the difference is stunning. The attack is sharper, the body is fuller, and, of course, the noise is kept to a minimum. I’d like to add that I called to inquire about the best way to replace a set of three and Lindy himself answered the question. I just can’t say enough good things.

    Put this pickup in my circa 1963 Gibson ES-125T. It sounds great, no noise and it fit perfectly. This guitar used to sit in the case and only get played maybe once a year, now I am playing it all the time. I am very very pleased! I play mostly Jazz and Blues and this pickup is perfect for this. The original P90 had an unuseable 60 cycle hum. I highly recommend this pickup to anyone that can’t stand the 60 cycle hum. Thank you Lindy Fralin!

    Zero hum, and I meant ZERO. These pickups are playing well with my Vox ac15, Analog Outfitters Sarge, Vintage BF; Vibro Champ, Delux Reverb, Princeton, and Bassman, as well as a custom made Harvard Tweed reproduction. Some guitar, pickup, amp combinations work better than others. My Les Paul with Fralin hum canceling P90’s sound great into any amp. And no more twisting, and turning around to minimize noise.

    Wow! Gorgeous. Like listening to liquid butter. Just had these put in my Gibson ES-390. Unreal. The Gibson had the MHS P 90’s. Nice but really annoying hum. Tyler was extremely helpful and Lindy, too. I know where I’ll be getting any future PUP’s. These are fantastic and the people are too.

    The solution to my P90 dilemma!

    Wow – totally blown away with your Hum Cancelling P90’s w/Alnico non adjustable poles. I put a pair into a 2004 Les Paul GOTM along with new pots, volume kits and your “special” caps now the sound is even more articulate, full and singing than I could have remotely anticipated.
    I am playing through a Mesa Boogie LoneStar Special, which I consider a dark toned amp, and these PU’s really brighten things up and are able to create classic Chicago blues break-up to heavy rock P90 grind overdrive AND still clean-up when turned down. Getting down to the non-distorted clean range things are just chimey full bodied. The pots and caps allow things to clean up at any volume and the tone controls now really work without any tone suck. You have a customer for life!! I have finally found the versatility I have been looking for…….

    I replaced the stock P90 in my ‘98 Epiphone LP Jr. with Lindy’s hum free model. I could not have been happier with the results. My satisfaction was magnified when I received a call at home from the man himself, asking me for clarification on details of my order to ensure complete satisfaction. Amazing customer service! (I actually thought it was one of my bandmates punking me on the phone! Fortunately I didn’t embarrass myself!) As for the product, the hum-free is indeed dead quiet, but overwhelmingly retains the sonic and tonal character of the original – very responsive and touch sensitive! My first Fralin purchase but certainly will not be my last!

    Have Lindy’s noiseless P90s on my red ’93 Les Paul Special they brought this guitar back alive from the stock gibson p100s.. They are beautiful pickups & span every style I play from hard rock to country music. And very pedal friendly with no squeal. You can drive them hard. Yes, i know the hum in p90s is part of the deal. I love noisy LP juniors. lol I have Lindys tele pickups & p90s. Can’t go wrong!! Thanks Lindy!! cheers,Benny Landa

    Just installed these pickups and I can finally enjoy p90s – without the hum, that is. The description is spot on. A little darker and thicker sounding, but all p90 tone. Of course I had to adjust from a true p90 to these babies, but I adjusted really quick. Best pickups I ever bought! Thanks Lindy!

    I purchased a set of hum cancelling P90’s to install in my new Epiphone 339. The original pickups were not too bad, but I hate hum. After seeing a you tube video I pulled the trigger (bought them through Amazon), and man I am glad I did. They sound just like great single coil P90’s, but zero hum. I have bought many sets of pickups over the years and these have impressed as much or more than any pickup I have ever tried. I give them 10 stars!

    I have a Dean Palomino whose pups went microphonic. I bought the P90 noise cancelling pups and they are awesome. I’ve been playing in bands for 37 years off and on. I have a bunch of guitars with great pups. This guitar, as an arch top jazz body with 3 pups and a Bigsby sounds fantastic. I actually play STP Plush with no squeal on top of Stray Cats, Rolling Stones, Black Crowes, etc. Money well spent!

    I adore the sound I get out of these pickups. I have a redwood and walnut arch top guitar that my father built that needed to be amplified, not just for jazz, but for indie rock, blues, and a little country. I recently bought a bridge no hum p90, and had wonderful very accommodating customer service. Can’t say enough.

    Only P90ish pickup I’ll use. I love gain and hate hum so I tried a set of HC soapbars (thanks CME) in my Fender JA-90 Tele. I now play it more than my CS ’58 Les Paul! Today I replaced a stock P90 with a HC dogear on a LP Jr replica and I can do anything from country to metal. I won’t go back. Forward with Fralin!

    Lindy provides the best customer service I have ever encountered! I had an unique need for my guitar and Lindy worked with me directly to get the sound I wanted. I have no bridge pick up, only a neck and middle position. I was looking for a brighter middle position pickup so it would sound more like a bridge position pickup. The first P90 he sent was not as bright as i needed for this application so he made me a custom pick up specifically to meet my needs. I ended up with a Neck P90 under wound 5% with alnico rods and this pick up has exactly the sound I needed. I couldn’t be happier with my purchase!

    I got this as a replacement to upgrade my Hamer Special double cut a few months ago. The tone, balance, and sensitivity is great! It took just the slightest tweak of the pole heights to make it sound to my taste. I get that “whistling scream” from my high strings on solos to the barely audible notes making the best dynamic range ever. Thanks Lindy!
