4. Lindy Fralin Vintage Hot ST-Standard Set

Lindy Fralin Vintage Hot ST-Standard Set

Pickup

Lindy’s strat pickups are exact copies of the Fender pickups of the late 50’s and early 60’s. The pickups sound very open and lively and support the sound spectrum of your guitar, without depriving them of their peculiarities, even in connection with high-gain amplifier circuits. Like all Fralin pickups, they are wound by hand. You use the same high-quality materials as then:

  • Vintage hot ST standard model
  • Black bobbin
  • 42 gauge Formvar (orange) wire
  • Alnico 5 magnets
  • Magnets by 1955 specifications
  • Cut to size pickup cable per installation position
  • Output Power: 6- 7 K
  • Colour: Vintage White

There are some small improvements:

  • The individual cartridges are designed for the corresponding position wound (bridge – mid – neck). Therefore, you get a very balanced volume ratio.
  • The middle pickup is wound with “reverse polarity”, which causes the usual humming problem of single coils to be suppressed in the intermediate positions.
  • All Fralin pickups are much better than the waxed old Fender pickups. This makes them not whistle, even at high volume.

22. Fender Texas Special Strat Set

Fender Texas Special Strat Set

Pickup Set Strat Texas Special

There is probably not a guitar in the world that has been played by as many people as the Fender Stratocaster. And hardly any other guitars allow for such hardware flexibility and DIY as the Strat, so it should come as no surprise that Fender offers a huge range of different pickups. These pickups are used in many Fender Strats from the Custom Shop. The Fender Stevie Ray Vaughan Singature Strat and the ’93/’94 Limited Strat get their characteristic sound from the Texas Special Strat pickups.

The middle pickup is reverse wired in design to reduce the humming in the middle position. The pickups in the set are designed to work in harmony with each other.

The characteristics: Loud vintage sound with rich bass and mids, but also sufficient treble to produce convincing a clean sound. This makes it the ideal pickup set for people looking for a slightly more powerful and fatter vintage Strat sound. The set brings the legendary Stevie Ray Vaughan sound well within reach – no surprises there, though, since his own Signature Strat is equipped with these exact pickups.

This pickup is “to blame” for the successful comeback of Fender pickups.
