All Strat Tone, Only Thicker!

Are you seeking a thicker Strat sound, that still sounds like a Strat? Look no further than Blues Specials.

Blues Specials provide more output and a thicker sound while retaining that Stratocaster tone we all know and love.

With more turns per coil than Lindy Fralin Vintage Hots, these slightly overwound pickups sound a bit thicker and hotter than vintage-voiced models.

Plugging in, you’ll immediately get inspired by the powerful, slightly compressed, and creamy Strat tone coming out of these pickups.

You’ll notice the tight and warm midrange coupled with crystal-clear lows and round highs.

Although they are an overwound Strat pickup, they are not too aggressive and feature a very open and dynamic tone.

Chords sound warm with a great string-to-string definition.

Expect a thicker high-end and a low-end growl, which will push your amp hard and provide a versatile and creamy breakup.

Lastly, cut through the mix when soloing with a thicker, rounder single note and a powerful attack.

Each pickup is wound by hand using Lindy Fralin's proprietary “Sectioning” technique.

Winding this way is more labor-intensive, but gives the pickup a sweet, clear tone.

Finally, pickups are wax-potted in a neutral wax to prevent microphonics and preserve the pickup for years to come.

Instantly transform your Strat into a versatile powerhouse and discover what you’ve been missing with Lindy Fralin's Blues Specials!

• 5% more coil than our Vintage Hots: 5% more output and mids, 5% less highs.

• Modified Fender specifications for more output and a thicker tone.
