Lindy Fralin Guitar Pickups - Tele Blues Special, Neck


This Fralin Blues Special Tele Neck Pickup is one of our go-to pickups and one of the reasons we love Fralin. Compared to the stock set, Lindy winds these 5% hotter with a polynylon wire instead of a plain enamel wire. This means a thicker, fuller tone that has more output and midrange than a stock Tele neck. The hybrid magnet stagger (i.e. raised D-string) balances string-to-string output and really evens out the pickup. These pickups have less of an edge to them, making them a little easier on the ears if the stock Tele twang isn't your thing. Without a cover, the Blues Special Tele Neck is also more open-sounding than a traditional Tele neck position.
