Lindy Fralin Blues Special Custom Tele Pickup Set with 2% Overwound Neck
This is a custom wound Lindy Fralin pickup set. The regular Blues Special Tele set, with 5% overwound coils, is a popular set but some customers have requested a slightly brighter, less hot neck pickup with a cover, to contrast with the the hotter bridge pickup, so we stock this "hybrid" set incorporating 5% overwind on the bridge but only 2% on the neck.
Lindy Fralin pickups are hand wound pickups of the highest quality. Lindy takes his time building these babies and most players that know pickups will tell you that these are the "real deal' in terms of tone and construction. They are made of materials similar to the ones used in the golden days of vintage Teles and Strats! This 50’s style Tele bridge pickup uses black fiberboard bobbin parts, cloth leads, and ALNICO V or ALNICO III magnets, just like the originals. The Lindy Fralin Blues Special Custom Tele bridge pickup is wound with 42 gauge Polynylon to 7.3K for 5% more power and 5% darker sound than the stock Tele Repro pickup. The Lindy Fralin Blues Special Custom Tele neck pickup is also a faithful reproduction of a slightly hotter vintage Tele neck pickup. Wound to 7.5K with staggered magnets and 2% more turns, this pickup is bright and strong.
Also available as a normal Blues Special set, with 5% overwound neck pickup, which does not have a cover on it.
