Are you seeking a more “polite” P90 tone with no hum? The P-92 is the pickup for you. Incredibly versatile, this pickup features bright wound strings with round treble strings. It’s perfect for Rock, Blues, Country, and Jazz.

Lindy’s unique Split-Single design allows you to achieve a genuine single-coil tone with zero hum, all packed in an awesome-looking humbucker. The USA-Made Alnico 5 bar magnet gives you a tight attack and bite, with a clear low-end and stiff treble.

The P-92 pickup sounds cleaner than our Hum-Canceling P90 but more aggressive than our Big Single 42.

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.

Gibson Braided Lead:

2-Conductor With Shield
Gibson Braided Lead - Use on Gibson-Style Instruments only, where each pickup has it's own respective volume and tone pot. Do not select this lead on Fender-style instruments, unless the instrument is wired like a Gibson, like a Telecaster Deluxe. This lead is non-reversible. You cannot split the humbucker with this lead.

    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.

  2. 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 D, yes you can absolutely use this as a Middle pickup. We recommend going with the Neck Output.

  8. 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 ... Read more

    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.

    Nice replacement! My faux Telecaster had a muddy humbucker in the neck position. I replaced it with a P-92 to brighten the sound. It worked like a dream.

  2. Twayn Williams
    Verified Buyer

    I don’t get along with standard Humbuckers. They just don’t work for me, but I really like p90 type tones. Part of the issue is that I play with a big fat gypsy pick — 3.5mm — and I hit really, really, really hard. This causes a perceived “scoop” in the mids with a regular humbucker and causes the low notes on the E and A strings to disappear on the bandstand.

    Why I waited so long to try a p-92 is beyond me. I put it in the neck position of my Comins GCS-16 laminated archtop and it’s exactly what I wanted. Brighter than a p90, but still with a good mids support. I play through either a PRRI or a 5E3 clone. Jazz, Swing and a bit of Jump Blues.

    I previously had the Hum-Cancelling P-90 in a Humbucker Cover in the guitar and while it was a good sound, it was a bit darker than I wanted and a bit too compressed for my tastes. I also tried a p90 in Humbucker Cover and it was way too dark in that guitar. The p92 is right in the goldilocks zone, not too bright, not too dark, not too mid-heavy, not too scooped. It’s just right.

    Love these P-92s. Excellent range and variety of tones.

    A Loyal Fralin Guitar Player
    Lindy, thank you so much for the personal attention and advice that you and your staff provided in my decision to try the Pure PAFs in my Gibson ES-335 and your P-92’s in my Gibson SG Supreme. Both were older guitars with the original humbuckers. I am absolutely sold on the new Fralin pickups and they are everything that you said they would be and more. The clarity, expressiveness, and articulation of these pickups is phenomenal! I am a blues and jazz style player and tend to favor a cleaner sound letting the natural tube saturation of my amps do the work. The Pure PAFs are perfect in my ES-335 and “pure” is the best description I can think of. The P-92s in my SG is nothing short of amazing. I know some “soapbar” purists may not agree, but I can’t tolerate single-coil hum. These pickups are completely noiseless and they now give my SG a tonal character and range I never thought possible. I am now eyeing up some other guitars in my collection for a possible Fralin makeover! Thank you again.

  5. Lance Bastion

    I put a P92 in the bridge position of a Music Man Silhouette. After speaking to Mr. Fralin about what I was trying to achieve, he sent me the pickup and it delivered…big time. Beautiful, snappy cleans at low volume morphing into very smooth and round as the volume on the amp is turned up. Somewhere between Fender and Gibson.Pretty much what I was hoping for and dead quiet. A true gem. Highly recommended. Great service from a guy who knows his stuff.

    Sweet distinct upgrade. Being mounted in neck position Les Paul Classic Ebony with original 61 R/61 T Zebra pickups w/push-pull coil-tap. The stock pickup was too muddy and raw for my taste and style. Fralin P-92 gives clarity, high string distinction, dynamics, and a lovely punch. Love it.

    I just received and installed a P92 pickup for my EP LP JR.

    You guys probably hear this all the time, but all i can say is – WOW! It sounds just fantastic, and is dead quiet as advertised and as i hoped for, but didn’t really expect to achieve.

    Does it sound like a real P90? I don’t know. I don’t have one handy to compare.

    Does it sound like i imagined it would in this guitar? Yes, absolutely what i was hoping for.

    Thanks, and you can expect more orders from me in the future.

    Perfect for me, bought em’ twice
    I put the stock P92s in my Les Paul years ago and loved them so much that I decided to put a slightly underwound pair in my semi-hollow body. They’re perfect, great detail and midrange without sounding harsh, and as everyone who’s played through these will tell you, the neck is killer with its tight low end. Totally noiseless too!

  9. Sam D.

    I assembled a Strat style guitar from Warmoth parts for my son. I installed a pair of these pickups–a bit pricey for me, but they were exactly what I was looking for. I ordered another one for a new build for me, but haven’t gotten around to that yet, so I installed it in the neck position of a Les Paul. The sound out of that pickup is exactly what I wanted as well. These P92 pickups are very nice sounding. Warmer than single coils, but much quieter than P90’s, and much more articulate than most humbuckers I’ve tried over the years. And my son is satisfied with his guitar!

  10. Stephen Vroman

    Nailed it
    After a few emails explaining what I was looking for tone-wise, the Fralin folks suggested an underwound P92. It really sounds great, having some of the girth of a P90 without being too midrange-y!
