Split Blade For Mustang FEATURES:
Split Blade Mustang Pickups: The revolutionary design in single-coil sound, without the hum. This pickup is built with a 2-coil design using steel blades for the pole piece. Unlike most humbucking pickups, Split Blades are designed with a left and right coil design, offering a truer and more balanced single-coil tone. You can expect a traditional single-coil tone from Split Blades, except with a bit more fatness and warmth. Split Blades are perfect for those who love the tone of their Mustang, but want to rid themselves of the noise.
The Split Blades for Mustang give you 3-Wire Pickups for phase reverse and a Left-Handed Bridge pickup.
- Single-Coil tone, with no Hum
- Fantastic string articulation, dynamics, and enhanced detail
- Cloth leads for easy installation (installs like a regular Mustang pickup)
- Overlapping pole pieces for even volume across all strings: even went bent
- 10-Year Warranty against manufacturing defects
- 30-day Risk-Free exchange policy for tonal reasons
Lindy Fralin Split Blade Pickups are unique: they offer a single-coil sound, with no hum, whatsoever. You can expect a fantastic warm, full-bodied tone with incredible string articulation and enhanced detail. Low strings sound clear and articulate, while the plain strings sound thicker than a single-coil, but still sparkle. Also, adjusting the pickup on the Bass and Treble ends really allows the player to fine-tune the pickup to his or her needs.
Split Blade Pickups will not pull the strings out of tune – even if they get close to the strings. When playing with distortion, Split Blade Pickups sound thick and dynamically rich. Chords have a nice compression on them while single note lines have a much larger sonic footprint. Split Blades sound thicker than our Vintage Hots out of the box in our Vintage output option.
Split Blades for Mustang are wound by hand with 43 Gauge SPN wire, with Ceramic magnets.
Split Blades read a lot lower than most pickups due to them being so efficient. Don’t go by ohm readings – they won’t give you any accurate information.

Hi, I want to install your Split Blade pickups - Blues output - on my 2022 American Performer Fender Mustang.. I believe it has a 250K pot, so I should upgrade it to 500K... is there a pot you'd recommend? Or, does it really matter... First time upgrading pick ups from stock on a guitar.. thanks

Hey Justin, if you want to go with the Blues Output, we strongly recommend using 500K pots. It will bring back the top-end of the pickup.
I have a 2016 Mexican Duo-Sonic with a humbucker in the bridge. Which of your single coil-sounding humbuckers would you recommend to pair with a Vintage Output Split Blade in the neck? Looking for Pops Staples clean with articulate wound strings. Would 300K pots be best? Amp is a silverface Pro Reverb. Thanks!

Hey Michael, we'd definitely recommend 300K pots. If you're looking for a traditional Humbucker look, I'd recommend the Sunbucker. It will pair really nicely with the Vintage Split Blade.
Wha pickups/pots could you recommend to get more of a punk tone, a la Strummer/Jones with a "Duo-Sonic II" built from a Mustang and neck.

We would probably recommend the Blues Output Split Blades for Mustang and 500K Pots! 0.02mfd Caps would work just fine.
How far away from the strings does the pickup need to be?
Q How far away from the strings does the pickup need to be?A Split Blades like to be closer to the strings than a normal Strat pickup.
How will this pickup differ from a standard Strat pickup?
Q How will this pickup differ from a standard Strat pickup?A The tone is very similar! Whenever you have two coils in series like a Split Blade, you’re going to lose a bit of that Fender “sparkle”, but we believe these are the closest you can get to the real thing.
What Radius do I need?
Q What Radius do I need?A Round Radius: (7.25"-9") Medium Radius: (9.5"-11") Flat Radius: (12+” or Compound Radius)
Which output should I choose?
Q Which output should I choose?A Vintage and High Output models sound best with 250K pots. Blues and Super High Outputmodels sound best with 500K pots. Basically, if you have the right pot installed, Vintage and Blues outputs will sound the clearest and most “Fender-y”. Their higher-output counterparts will sound thicker and break up quicker.
I too have a 2021 Mustang American Performer with the stock Yosemite pickups. Can you suggest which split blade pickup set will get me closest to a clean Hendrix/SRV/Mayer tone? Many thanks!

Read moreA I would suggest either Vintage Output Split Blades on 300K Pots, or Blues Output Split Blades on 500K Pots. The Blues Output Split Blades would be slightly thicker-sounding and a touch higher output.
I have a 2021 Mustang American Performer with the stock Yosemite pickups. I shielded all the internet cavities and entire back of pickguard which helped lower background noise in bridge and neck positions, but still too much electromagnetic radiation buzz/hum that is dependent on the position of the actual guitar. It seems 2k-4k in terms of the hum/buzz that is present. The stock Yosemite pickups have RWRP for one of the pickups so the middle swi...

I have a 2010 Japanese Fender Mustang. What radius do I get for the split blades? I also have phase switches and am buying a set. Will I need to add the 3 wire option? Thank you

I also have the Fender Performer Mustang with Yosemite pickups. I’m finding that in addition to badly needing hum-canceling, I also would like a pickup with a little more output and more sparkle/chime on the highs. The Yosemite sound pretty flat and has lower output compared to what I’m used to in my Strats. Would the Vintage Output give me that or should I try something else? I guess I’m looking for something that would do everything from ...
