With a simple installation, you can reset assured Lindy Fralin’s Bass VI will drop right into any Bass VI guitar; no modification needed.
It starts here: Our manufacturing process allows us to achieve unparalleled quality control. Our Bass VI Pickups consist of local fiberboard and USA-Made Alnico 5 Magnets. We wind each pickup by hand, one at a time. Each pickup is wound using our proprietary “Sectioning” technique. This gives the pickup a sweet, clear tone. Finally, we wax-pot the pickup to preserve the pickup and prevent microphonics.
These pickups are loud! We designed our Jaguar pickups to be pretty high output (6.3K Neck, 7K Bridge) so they’ll sound great with a factory-installed 1Meg volume pot. Our Jaguars are louder and thicker-sounding than our Blues Specials for Strat. On clean, the neck pickup sounds bouncy and rich. Lots of warm low-mids and fat treble strings. The bridge pickup will be just hot enough to play nicely with the neck, while still bring bright and snappy. Both pickups will sound clear and articulate with a 1Meg volume pot, but you can always darken your tone for a jazzier vibe with a 500K pot.
With some overdrive or distortion, expect a lot of “cream” as these Jaguar replacements break up nicely and evenly. The Sound Sample below features our Stock Set. We also offer a +5% Set and a +10% Set. Adding more turns will make this pickup thicker and darker – and louder.
