Lindy Fralin Blues Special Strat (set)
Think Texas Spacial, only Better!!!!
The Fender Stratocaster™ is Lindy Fralins favorite style of guitar, so it was a matter of honor for him to develop some Strat® replacement pickups.
All models are listed from the clearest and brightest to the heaviest and most powerful (see list of images on left handside of page), in 5% increments.
A stronger pickup will make your treble strings sound better but your wound strings will get farther from the Fender twang. (Thicker and darker, see image below).
The first five models use ALNICO V magnets (except Real 54's) in either stock or hybrid stagger (hybrid stagger is for necks with flatter than 10” radius).
We also have ALNICO III rod magnets which are 5% brighter and have 5% more lower mids.
The Real 54's use six ALNICO III’s.
The Steel Poled replacement for Strat® are built with steel pole pieces (screws) and bar magnets underneath for 20% and 25% over stock output.
5% (+) Overwind = 5% More Power, 5% More Mids, but 5% Less Highs
5% ( - ) Underwind = 5% Less Power, 5% Less Mids, but 5% More Highs
An optional BLENDER POT is available to add to the versatility of your instrument, mixing the neck and bridge pickups.
A BASS PLATE is an option for the bridge position on ALNICO poled pickups which will give you 10% more bass without affecting the mids or highs.
Lindy Fralin's second best selling set! This set is wound with 42 SPN and has 5% more turns than the Vintage Hot. This makes it a 5% stronger pickup. It will have 5% more mids and 5% less high end. It is ideal for a stock sound with just enough thickness for single note soloing. On request we will make 2% or 7% instead of the normal 5% overwind.

Great for those of us who live riffing and soloing, rather then chording
