Fralin Vintage Hot Stratocaster Pickups are the best-selling Fralin single coil set and are well known by reputation. If you’re looking for a sparkling, bright, and open tone, you will love the sound of these pickups. Vintage Hots give you a balanced 50’s Tone: a smooth balance between bright and fat. They fit in the middle sonically of their Real 54’s and Blues Specials.
Era-authentic vintage hot strat pickups, wound with USA-made 42-gauge Formvar-enameled wire. Made with USA built AlNiCo V magnets. Lindy Fralin hot strat pickups offer a smooth, balanced, and beautiful tone.
Fralin Vintage Hots sparkle and sound very open and clear without sounding “tinny” or glassy. These pickups sound big and full, with an even balance of Bass, Middle, and Treble, clean or dirty. The tone cuts through with distortion – while remaining very dynamic and thick.
Expect a precise low-end and an acute attack. Single notes cut through with ease, while chords have an excellent string-to-string definition.
The manufacturing process at Fralin Pickups allows them to achieve unparalleled quality control. The Vintage Hots consist of locally-stamped fiberboard and USA-Made Alnico 5 Magnets. Each pickup is wound by hand, one at a time. Using Lindy’s proprietary “Sectioning” technique. Our Sectioning Technique gives the pickup a sweet, bright tone. Finally, the pickups are wax-potted to preserve your pickup and prevent microphonics.
