Lindy Fralin Guitar Pickups - Tele Blues Special, Strat Polarity, Bridge

SOLD - Contact us for more options
Free Shipping Eligible

This Fralin Blues Special Tele Bridge Pickup, Strat Polarity is one of our go-to pickups and one of the reasons we love Fralin. This is a faithful 50s reproduction with a few twists. Lindy uses black fiberboard bobbin parts, cloth leads, and Alnico V magnets like the stock sets but Fralin winds them 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 bridge. The hybrid magnet stagger(i.e. raised D-string) balances string to string output and really evens out the pickup. These pickups also tone down the highs that the stock set projects, making them easier on the ears if the stock Tele twang isn't your thing. Strat polarity to be used with a Stratocastor or Humbucking pickup in the neck.
