Overview

Dig deep into the bass with our Fralin Bass VI model! Our version of the Bass VI features Jaguar® looks, an optimized magnet stagger for wound string guitars, and a cleaner, more vintage output. Additionally, we make them the way Lindy likes them – with a reverse-wound Bridge, giving you hum-canceling in the middle position. 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.

Sound

We offer two voicings of our Bass VI pickups – Stock and +5%. The Stock output features a bright, jangly tone that is perfect for that old-school vibe Lindy loves. If you’re looking for less jangle and more output, our +5% output features a thicker tone with tapered highs and a warmer midrange. Either option you choose, these pickups are loud! We designed our Bass VI pickups to be pretty high output (6.3K Neck, 7K Bridge) so they’ll sound great with a factory-installed 1Meg volume pot, but players seeking a warmer tone will like the tone on a 500K pot.
