SNAPPY, BRIGHT, AND SPANKY.

The Lindy Fralin Sunbucker® humbucker is very snappy, bright sounding humbucker with a Single Coil vibe. Based on Lindy’s original design, the Sunbucker® humbucker is clean, very articulate, and clear. You can expect a spanky, snappy clean tone that’s very articulate than most modern humbuckers, while offering a lot of Single Coil tone. The Sunbucker® has a medium output, which is very dynamic and expressive. Lindy created this pickup to help balance out very dark sounding guitars, or for those who want a bright, snappy tone with no hum.

SOUND:

Very bright, clear, and articulate. The Sunbucker® will stay clean as it won’t break up as early as modern humbuckers, and you’ll find that it’s spanky and plucky. Built with AlNicCo V and 42-gauge plain enamel wire, the Sunbucker® Humbucker is a great solution to a dark-sounding humbucker in the Neck position, or for those who are chasing after a single coil tone with no hum. When playing clean, you’ll find that this pickup sounds very much like a single coil: it’s extremely dynamic, clear, and snappy. With distortion, you’ll find that the smooth and late, with a pronounced pick attack and pure-sounding plain strings and bright wound strings.

  • 75% Single Coil tone, 25% Humbucker
