HOW WE BEGAN
Lindy Fralin has been a pioneer and innovator in the Guitar and Bass pickup industry for 25+ years, and his guitar pickups are found in some of the most notable and influential guitarist's guitars today.
Lindy Fralin Pickups started as a humble, on-man-shop re-wind and repair business out of the historic Fan District in Richmond, VA. Lindy Fralin started the business out of a spare bedroom in an apartment in this district. Here, he received countless pickups from all eras, and his passion for music pushed him to examine all the details of these vintage pickups and determine their "magic". Lindy would re-wind pickups with a winder built from a sewing machine motor and pedal, and a variac in a coffee can.
Today, we are a full-fledged manufacturing shop with many lines of product offerings, including Stratocaster pickups, Telecaster pickups, Jazzmaster pickups, Humbuckers, Bass pickups, and creative new designs not found anywhere else. Lindy and his team are always pushing the boundary further in the industry. We are always looking for new designs, and improvements to our current line to make our pickups the best on the market.
With a small and humble shop of 8 employees, the Lindy Fralin Pickups team strives to make the highest quality product available: from start to finish. Our pickups are assembled from the highest quality materials we can get our hands on. We use all USA-Made parts, and we assemble, wind, and test every pickup by hand - with unsurpassable attention to detail. Our goal is for our customer to be completely blown away by the tone, clarity, and articulation of our pickups. We will continue to strive to make the best-sounding pickups available, and we hope you love them as much as we do.
