    I have installed and used innumerable P90s in my time as both builder and performer. It is one of my favorite pickups, but not all of them are built equally. While some can be quite harsh, others, especially over-wound ones, may be downright unusable due to excessive compression. In general, I tend to favor those with lower wind using alnico II, III or IV magnets. But everything is relative, and a pickup is only as good as how well it is made and the quality of its components. So far I have had little experience with Fralin P90s, but as part of rebuilding an old Domino hollow body guitar, I intuitively decided to go with Lindy’s vintage voiced dogears and I’m glad I did. It is by far the best sounding P90 out there, articulate, open and with the kind of bark that is neither too harsh nor squashy. It made that old Japanese guitar sound like a million dollars, the kind of instrument you pick up and realize you’ve been playing it for an hour, forgetting that you were only meant to give it a test run. This P90 is now the one for me!

    WOW. I’m used to being impressed by Lindys pickups but these exceeded expectations, by far. I’ve tried a lot of other Lindy Fralins pickups – Real 54s, Vintage Hot for both strats & teles, Pure PAFs. The split blades, steel poles, etc. ALL sound amazing, I’ve tried other brands. Keep coming back to Fralins. They.Just.Sound.BETTER. Than anything else. They all sound like the original pickups that are being emulated but somehow better. Much better. I don’t know what sort of magic he’s came across but everything Fralin is magical sounding, and inspiring. I’ll never be famous but I can have a famous, amazing sounding guitar with Fralin pickups. ALL Fralin pickups I’ve purchased are downright INSPIRING. Well done, Lindy, once again!

    These are hands down the best P90 pickups there is. I swapped out the shoddy Epiphone Pro P90’s in my Casino for a pair of the standard Fralin P90’s. Wow. They are sublime and beat any other P90’s I’ve had the pleasure of owning (SD Antiquities, Lollar, Monty’s 54, Gibson, Mojotone). If you’re looking for P90’s, the search stops here.

    A truly perfect P90! Thank you guys for the support and excellent service.

    My first experience with Fralin, and a great one. The pickups in my Epiphone Casino were just very bland and lifeless, broke up way too quickly, muddy, uninspiring. Complete 180 with the stock Fralin P90’s. Clear, articulate, respond well to pick attack, and break up nicely as I push the guitar volume, as opposed to just an on/off switch. Love the way they sound clean, too – neck pickup is very bluesy and warm, and bridge is well-defined without sounding “ice picky”. Will definitely be buying more Fralin pickups in the future

    I ordered a set of stock P-90s for a Black Cherry Telecaster build I did. Wow. These things sing. They have to be the most responsive P-90s I have played. They have tons of bite despite the fact I went with Fender Tele spec’d pots and caps. I was so impressed I will use Fralin pick-ups on my next builds – a ’51 P-bass (already on order) and a classic Black Cherry P-Bass to match the Telecaster. Not only do these things sound amazing, the cream pick-up covers really compliment the wood. After much research and debate, I am glad that I went with Fralin’s.

    Great pickups. Clear and articulate – and fat and warm too! Love them.

  8. Eric Mangum
    Verified Buyer

    I ordered a P90 bridge, 5% over, for a single pickup Les Paul project. The overwind is perfect for the application….all the power you need in the bridge position. Then drop the volume a bit, roll the tone to the deep end and you get all the thick rich sounds of a neck pickup. Beyond all expectations! Absolute P90 perfection!

  9. Steve Hoover
    Verified Buyer

    I love A4 P90’s.
    I went with a stock bridge wind and -5% neck wind for a 06 Korean Casino.
    The neck cover angle was off for my particular guitar, so I built a custom wedge shim out of a .080” piece of black pickguard material under the front half of the neck pickup. With this set up I am very happy with the balance between both pickups.
    These are great P90’s and I think they sound period correct with the metal covers.

    They were safely packed and the turnaround time was quick. Thanks Lindy and Company!
