Big Single Humbucker

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 2 customer ratings
(2 customer reviews)


A Lindy Fralin original design! The Big Single is a Humbucker that has a big, round single-coil sound with no hum. It’s beefier than our Twangmaster, but cleaner and more articulate than our Hum-Cancelling P-90. We offer two versions: a 42-Gauge version, and a 43 Gauge version.

Big Single Electric Guitar Pickups are a Lindy Fralin original design. Based off of a desire to improve the tone of a Mini-Humbucker, Lindy created the formula of the Big Single. Lindy was pleased with this tone so much, that he worked it into a standard Humbucker cover. With the Big Single, you’ll get a bouncy, round single-coil tone – with no hum. We pack all the fat-sounding goodness by hand into a great looking No-Hole Humbucker Cover.


  • Hum-Cancelling Thick Single Coil Tone, in a Humbucker Cover
  • Lindy Fralin Original Design
  • 2-Coil design with a bar magnet for silent, huge tone
  • Bouncy, rich, warm
  • Can accommodate up to 2 1/4 string spacing


The Big Single guitar pickup is directly in-between the tone of our Fralin P-92 and our Fralin Twangmaster. It has a beefier, bolder tone than our Twangmaster, but cleaner than our P-92. Treble strings sound warm and fat, and wound strings sound bright, like all single-coil pickups. We can wind these pickups with either 42 or 43 gauge wire. 42-gauge wire will sound cleaner and brighter, and work well with 250K Pots. 43-gauge wire will sound thicker and darker and can work well with 500K pots. The Big Single Sounds bouncy, rich, and full. Great for either clean playing or distortion, this pickup will break up a little earlier than our Twangmaster, and is great for anyone looking for a slimmer-sounding P-92.


42-Gauge Sound:

43 Gauge Sound:


The Lindy Fralin Big Single uses a 2-coil design with a bar magnet in-between, and uses either 42-gauge or 43-gauge wire. Like our P-92, we sell this pickup based on number of turns. Our stock set uses 6,800 Turns (Bridge) / 6,000 Turns (Neck) with 42 gauge wire for a cleaner, brighter tone with a late breakup. Choose 8,000 Turns (Bridge) / 7,000 Turns (Neck), with 43-gauge wire for a thicker tone. The stronger Big Singles will work better with 500K pots.


  1. Gibson® Braided Shielded: Most popular. Use this if you have no special requirements (Coil tapping, Phase Reverse or Series / Parallel).
  2. 2-Conductor With Shield: Use this if you have Phase-Matching needs.

    I put a set of Lindy Fralin Big Singles in my Ibanez AS73 Tobacco Burst guitar about 6 months ago. The stock pickups were ok, but not amazing. The Big Singles brought it to life. I’ve always liked single coils better than humbuckers, but single coil noise has always driven me crazy. It was always been worth dealing with the noise, but still annoying. Mr. Fralin had rewound a dead 1969 Telecaster neck pickup for me about 20 years ago and that has been my favorite all along. I have other Fralin’s in a Strat and like them as well. When I heard about the Big Singles I knew they would be worth a try.
    I got the 42 gauge standard 6800/6000 wind set with Gibson braided shield and Raw Nickel covers. They look great and sound incredible!
    I had previously modded the 500k pots in the Ibanez with a treble bleed cap and resistor to try to retain the highs as I rolled off the volume. I was going to remove these and put in 250k pots as recommended but, I figured there was no point changing something that may not need it. I’m glad I didn’t. I love the 500k with these pickups. For the first time ever, I have full control over my tone! Super bright to full mud if I want it and everything on between. Tonal possibilities are endless with just the three way switch, tone, and volume controls on the guitar. Forget about a bunch of pedals when all you need is a decent guitar good amp and these pickups.
    Without a doubt, these are hands down my FAVORITE pickups.
    All of the tone of single coils and NONE OF THE NOISE! Lindy Fralin is THE Best Pickup Winder on the planet!!!!

    For those who care, I’ve been playing for over 40 years. I have many guitars, amps, pedals, etc. from vintage to modern. Enjoy and play most types of music. And I RARELY write reviews, especially long ones. I have no affiliation with Fralin Pickups or any other company.

    The guys worked with me to find a pickup that would help get my PRS S2 Starla in more of the Americana/country vibe. I got the 42 gauge standard 6800/6000 wind set with Raw Nickel covers. I’m completely satisfied with the results. Clarity & snap increased. I’ve used the guitar live & for recording since the change and it works great for Americana, blues & country. I put together a quick demo of the original sounds & then the big singles: https://youtu.be/buS3Z1RgTi8
