- Supplier Name: Lindy Fralin Pickups
Vintage Hot Pickups: our best selling single coil set. Musicians looking for a sparkling, bright, and open sound will love the sound of these guitar pickups. These pickups offer a 50’s era-authentic sound, for direct replacement in a Fender® Stratocaster or other single-coil equipped guitar. Vintage Hots are fatter sounding that our Real 54’s, but not as dark as our Blues Specials. Wound with 42-gauge Formvar wire and AlNiCo V magnets, These guitar pickups sound smooth, balanced, and beautiful.
Lindy's Strat pickups are exact copies of the Fender pickups of the late 50s, early 60s. The pickups sound very open and lively. They support the sound spectrum of your guitar without robbing it of its characteristics, even in combination with high-gain amplifier circuits. Like all Fralin pickups they are hand wound. You use the same high quality materials as back then.
However, there are some small improvements:
The individual pickups are wound specifically for the corresponding position (bridge - middle - neck). Therefore you get a very balanced volume balance.
The middle pickup is wound with "reverse polarity", which suppresses the usual hum problem of single coils.
All Fralin pickups are much better waxed than the old Fender pickups. Therefore they don't whistle, even at higher volume.
