Split-Blade

Fralin Split Blade hum-bucking Pickup

This is a fully hum-bucking replacement for Strat® style pickups with all the high-end clarity you expect from a traditional single coil.

The Split-Blade is available in four outputs (Vintage, Blues, High Output, and Super High Output) and two colors (off-white and black). All 3 sets come with a 10% stronger bridge.

We now make the blades in 3 curves: from 7.25" - 9" round radius, 9.5" to 11" middle radius, and 12" + radius.

This design likes being close to the strings and will not pull the strings out of tune. It will work fine with a 300k or 500k pot for a brighter tone.

    • Vintage

"Long recognized for his accurate-sounding vintage-style pickups, Lindy Fralin has devoted much of his more original thinking to capturing realistic single-coil tones in new hum-rejecting designs. Fralin has been widely acclaimed for his Gibson Humbucker-, Fender Jazzmaster- and Gibson P-90-sized "Split Singles", which use two staggered (but individual) coils in a single housing, each wound to opposite polarities to reject hum. But fitting the same principle into a Stratocaster-sized bobbin has eluded him—until now." Read more here, Dave Hunter, Aug 2010
