As we’re sure you’re aware, a known challenge with P90 pickups is the hum. Rest assured: we’ve solved that problem and found a unique, versatile sonic footprint where the P-92 fits perfectly.
The P-92 features a cleaner and more articulate overall tone. It’s more “polite” than our Hum Cancelling P90s, and much clearer-sounding than our Pure P.A.F. That said, the P-92 offers you a thick, warm midrange accompanied by a stiffer and rounder treble – perfect for many music styles.
The 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.
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 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 prevent microphonics and to preserve the pickup for years to come.

I'm building a two humbucker guitar for a customer who wants to use your P-92's. He wants a push-pull coil tap. Is that possible with these pickups?

Hey Dave, as it turns out, no - these pickups are wired like a P-Bass, so coil splitting will render half of the strings silent.
I have a set of P-92’s that were installed in an Epiphone ES-335 Pro. I really love their sound but over the course of about 3 months, they’ve started to hum. I’ve tried different amps, cables, through the pedalboard, straight into amp, etc., and the hum is definitely present. Any suggestions on what to try next?

Hey Aaron, yes they do!
Is this pickup available as a middle pickup? I am in the process of converting a SG into a 3 pickup guitar with noiseless hum sized p90s in neck and bridge position. Would love this in the middle if possible. Thanks.

Hey D, yes you can absolutely use this as a Middle pickup. We recommend going with the Neck Output.
Hi there, I´m really corious abot your PUs, but I just wanna know, which model is the right fit to my guitar. It`s a LP Special type but with a short Tele-Bridge. The body wood is cherry with a spruce top, the neck is mahogany (really thick with a V-Profile). Andreas Kloppmann said that the guitar sounds (accoustically) like a lapsteel to him. She`s very articulate and percise with a lot of sustain (it`s really hard to describe the tone). Right ...

Hey Harlem, the P-92 sounds like the perfect fit - it's an acoustically "open"-sounding P90 tone with a clearer midrange and plenty of articulation. I use it to play jazz and it is one of my favorite pickups we make - it really lets the tone of the guitar come through.
So I am new to the world of SG guitars. I have spent the better part of my 30 years of playing guitar with Fender Strats and Teles. The stock neck humbucker on my SG sounded muddy and unusable. However, the P-92 solved that problem. In the middle position, it blends well with the bridge pickup but has its own chime-y clarity in the neck position. Thanks for saving my SG Mr. Fralin!!!
Very balanced and articulate.
Sounds like a clear articulate humbucker, which is just what I wanted. Thank you.
Ordered the P-92 for my MIM Strat with a DiMarzio FS-1 middle and factory neck (I unapologetically love the tone of the MIM early 2000s Fender neck PUPs). A week later, I ordered the Blender Pot Kit and bought a 500k pot. Wired it up using the Modified HSS diagram but only used the Magic Cap on the tone pot. Then I finally plugged in. I don’t really know how to explain it. I can only say that there is an elegance in Mr. Fralin’s genius. Also, it can’t go without saying that the quality of the customer service is as good as the products. I actually can’t say that because this Lindy Blender Bucker is so badass but you get the point. 5 stars.
Custom wound P-92’s! Sonic clarity, With good bite.
Customer added no additional comments
Best Sounding Pickup! 9000 turns – rich harmonics, full, good clarity, and very dynamic. Works well with all my pedals. I installed this in modified Tele HH. I eliminated the neck pickup and installed the P92 in the bridge position and modified the switching.
I ordered a neck P-92 with the recommended winding (whatever that is). It sounds pretty much exactly as described: a slightly airy P-90. Paired here with a tapped humbucker. Has enough top end to blend nicely with the single coil (with series humcanceling coil) and enough beef to match the full humbucker, and sounds great by itself, like a slightly underwound P90.
In case you can’t tell, I’m pleased. Would order again.
I purchased a set of the P-92’s for a custom built Tele-deluxe that I’d had for years. The guitar is very light Swamp Ash body with a really fat Maple neck with an Ebony slab finger board. I originally had a set of Seymour Duncan ‘59s, which were sweet, but didn’t have much (any?) snap, or clarity. The neck was pretty muddy and indistinctive. Especially if you were over driving the amp.
I’ve always liked single coil pups, but wanted to keep some deeper midrange in an already bright guitar. My thought was humbucker sized P-90’s, but after talking it through with a sales representative at Fralin I went with the P-92’s.
These pickups are really clear, sweet and musical. They are dead quiet. They break up nicely when you’re pushing the amp. They really retain their definition where ever you’re taking them. The neck pup is really, truly awesome. The Bridge has nice squawk and bite. I have a .002 cap to roll off the highs if I’m using an overdrive or soloing.
I’m really liking how my guitar is sounding. I wish I could report on how it sits in a mix with drums and bass, but I haven’t been playing out. It definitely sounds great in jams with other guitar players. Looking forward to surveying my axe through some different amps.
Theses pickups are not “really” P-90 sounding in my guitar. My guitar sounds pretty unique, in a good way. I would be interested to see what they sound like in a Mahogany/Mahogany version of my guitar? I’m sure they would have a different voice. Bottom line, all Lindy Fralin pickups (that I’ve played) are extremely musical.
If you’re looking for a big sounding, P-90’ish, dead quiet, single coil pickups, these are really great! The tone really lets you and your instrument speak.
Love the p92’s!!!! From beautiful clean jazz tones to screaming overdriven blues rock these babies deliver. Thank you!!!
