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.

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 have a telecaster thinline 72, I would like to know if the size is the same as the febder wide range and also if I can use the fender covers, I would also like to know wich would be a nice option for the output of the pickups, thanks

Hey Ahmed, the P-92 is a standard humbucker size, so it is smaller than the Wide Range Humbuckers. You would have to get a new pickguard in order to use the P-92 on your guitar.
Just watched a video of Lindy demonstrating the P92 and said the bridge was 8000 and neck was 7800. Are those stock, or how much underwound?

Hey Jeremy, those pickups were very underwound. Our Stock Set comes in at 8,200 on the Neck and 9,200 on the Bridge.
I really want a nickel set with gold pole pieces, Ive been told before that y'all cant make that -- can the adjustable pole pieces be removed and replaced? Could I buy a nickel set and gold pole pieces and swap them myself?

Hey David, we're not sure who told you that, but we can definitely do it! Just request it in the "notes" field on the checkout screen and we'll make it custom. - Tyler
I have a 335 and strat w/ texas pickups. I changed the 335 57's for a P90 (alnicoII-enamel-9.2k-7.2k) love it! No need to always backup neck volume (as I did w/ 57s). Nice clarity, mids and noise canc. on mid pos. However. w/ gain, its gets too noisy in neck/bridge pos. I was thinking about a HumCanc. P90s, but I am afraid to be too dark for the 335. Then, I looked Alnico HumCanc. P90s, but I don't want 335 to sound too similar to the strat. Fina...

Yes - go with the overwind P-92s! You'll love the tone and the overwind bridge will give you a bit more output and push.
Would a P-92 in the bridge position pair well with a Twangmaster in the neck? I’m wanting a brighter neck sound and a bit darker bridge sound than what I’m getting from two Fender humbuckers right now. Thanks!

Hey Goose, yes, you can definitely do this. I find that the P-92 sounds best on a 500K pot, and the Twangmaster sounds best on a 250K pot. You can accomplish this by using a 500K master volume and running a 470K (or 500K if you can find it) from the switch to ground where you solder your Neck pickup.

Great, brighter Humbucker alternative. Brighter than I expected with the screw pole pieces but still very musical and never harsh. Wake up your dull, humbucker equipped guitar!
I have the P92s in a Telecaster Deluxe American Professional 2016…they’re the most versatile pickups I’ve ever owned. I play on tour for Jamey Johnson and he covers a lot of musical ground. The P92s make it easy to dial into to warm jazzy tones, dirty southern rock and clean chicken pickin’ country .I manage to cover it all on the one guitar. I would definitely purchase again.
Lovely pickup! Was searching something different for T-style guitar with CuNiFe WRHB in neck. The looks matched too.
Haven’t own a P90 guitar before, but long time wanted one. With minimal hum, because playing environment is quite “dirty” electrically (all kinds of interference sources).
Alone P-92 is gritty and gnarly, but still articulate. Organic with an edge, responsive, breaks up beautifully, and when using the tone pot can reach jazzier sounds if needed. In the middle position it blends beautifully with Wide Range Humbucker when correct adjustments and balance was found. Brings certain in the mix “ding” while WRHB offers “bloom” 😀 .. I’ve got an out of phase switch too and when using volume pots with it, yet another world opens.
Was first little worried how it pairs with a hottish humbucker, but result is great. At least for my purposes (blues, grunge, punkish stuff, rock). P-92 carries itself and also work as a pair. Although used actually few days adjusting and finding the sweet spots.

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.
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
