Lindy Fralin Humbuckers

Gibson’s classic double coil pickup. The coils are in phase to a guitar amp, but out of phase to the “hum” in the air. We offer this pickup in Zebra (one black coil and one cream coil) or Double Black. Other options include coil tap or Gibson style braided shield wire and outputs from 7.5 K to 10.0 K. All of our humbuckers are wound with 42 Plain Enamel like the old P.A.F.’s.

PAF style humbuckers are available in outputs of: 7.5K, 8K, 8.5K, 9K, 9.5K & 10K

Caution Sign Note: As with all pickups, more turns of wire gives more power, thicker mids and less highs.

5% Overwind = 5% More Power - 5% Highs Graph

* Note:
5% (+) Overwind = 5% More Power, 5% More Mids, but 5% Less Highs
5% (-) Underwind = 5% Less Power, 5% Less Mids, but 5% More Highs

Now available! Wider spaced humbuckers. We have 50 mm and 52 mm, in white or black, flat foot or deep foot. (White, flat foot shown at left or click for larger image – 9.8 KB.)

We recommend a stronger bridge. (i.e. 8 K neck, 9 K bridge). Our coil tap models are designed to be hum canceling when the tapped humbucker is combined with a Strat reverse middle. (Humb-Single-Humb or Single-Single-Humb). If you want to have a phase reversal switch, you can reverse white and black.
