Overview

Fralin P-92 Electric Guitar Pickups are perfect for anyone who wants a P-90 type tone in their humbucker-routed guitar, with no hum. We use a Split Single-coil design to get hum-canceling P-90 Tones, in a Humbucker size. Our P-92 uses AlNiCo V magnets and sounds big, fat, and smooth. This pickup sounds clearer than our hum-canceling P-90 but dirtier than our Big Single. Fralin P-92 guitar pickups have a great blend of P-90 and single-coil tone with no hum, all the while offering nice breakup and an “in-your-face” sound.

Sound

For those who love the sound of Vintage P-90 pickups, now you can fit them into the humbucker-routed guitar. Thick and robust, bold, and in-your-face. The Fralin P-92 is quick to break up, but you’ll find that it’s still clearer, like traditional Vintage P90s. Built with alnico V magnets, we use 42-gauge or 43 gauge wire depending on the strength you need. When playing clean, you’ll find that this pickup has a thicker, bold tone with a stiff high end. With distortion, you’ll find that the grind is dirtier than our Big Single, but not as much as a typical Humbucker.
Players who want a sparkly-top end should look at our Twangmasters, as our P-92’s sound more like a Gibson. Expect a harder treble and a more stiff attack.

It all starts here: our manufacturing process allows us to achieve unparalleled quality control. Our P-92’s consist of USA-Made bobbins, baseplates, magnets, and wire. 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, bright tone. We assemble each pickup one at a time, by hand. This allows us to achieve unbeatable attention to detail. Finally, we wax-pot the pickup to preserve the pickup and prevent microphonics.

FAQs

  • What’s the tonal difference between this and your Hum-Cancelling P90? The Hum-Cancelling P90 is slightly louder, darker, and thicker. It’s quicker to break up. The P-92 is more of a blend with a traditional Vintage P90 – cleaner and clearer.
  • What output do I choose? The best selling set is a Stock Neck and a Stock Bridge. Getting more turns will add midrange and make the pickup sound darker and thicker. Going with fewer turns will make the pickup sound clearer and more articulate.
  • 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.
  • Will this fit in a Humbucker Position? Yes. It’s Gibson humbucker sized.
  • What’s the String Spacing? 50mm.
  • How far away do the strings need to be from the pickup? 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.

    P 92 pickup set

    I put these in a Gibson SG and they sound amazing. They are very clear and balanced. They really come alive when pushed into distortion. I couldn’t be happier. The youtube videos represent them very well.

  3. Bob Farmer

    I bought a pair of gold P92s from MacDaddy Music. Installed in an Epiphone Lucille, they turned a dark, somewhat muddy-sounding guitar without a lot of personality into a real gem. Highly recommended.

    I put a P-92 front pickup on an ES-335. To me, it sounds better than the humbucker did. I play a Strat a lot of the time and the P-92 is more reminiscent of a strat front pick up than the humbucker was. It is also dead quiet, no hum.

    P-92s in a D’Angelico 335 style

    I swapped out the stock Kent Armstrong humbuckers with the Fralin P-92s in my D’Angelico 335 style guitar. The P-92s sound really clear as I had hoped. The stock humbuckers sounded muddy to my ear – good for blues, perhaps. Not so good for jazz and Latin/African music that I often play. To my surprise, the P92s also improved the dynamic response of the instrument. The “touch” of the guitar is improved/enhanced with the P-92s. I have a Godin archtop (Uptown) that plays and sounds very good. It has Godin humbuckers. The P-92s have a better dynamic touch/response than these pickups. I am considering P-92s for this guitar…haven’t decided. I appreciate Lindy’s personal input. It helped a lot. Thanks, Boston musician, Mark Torgerson
