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.

Features:

  • 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

 

Sound

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 Blade Outputs

Tech Specs

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 have a 2022 American Performer Mustang. I play mostly alternative rock and classic rock. I don't want to route the guitar, and I want it to retain more clarity than using typical stacked or rail single-coil sized humbuckers. Playing style like Queens of the Stone Age and Pixies... I will be using both clean sounds and overdriven sounds. What output and pot values would you recommend?

    Hey John, thanks for your question! I would recommend the High Output model for the style of music you're playing. This output will sound best with a 250K or 300K pot. - Tyler

  2. Is the split blade look a cosmetic feature only or does this affect the sound of the pickups?

    A Hey Alex, the split blades allow you to bend the G string and not lose any volume. Without the split and bent blades, your volume would drop out completely as soon as you bend the G string. - Tyler
  4. I have a 2021 Mustang American Performer with the stock Yosemite pickups. I am thinking of upgrading to Fralin Pickups. I want to play softer sounding indie rock with the option of occasionally cranking it up. Do you have a pickup recommendation? Also, I do not know much about pots- do I need to order these separately or they come with the pickups? Are the pots in my stock guitar compatible? (As you can tell I am planning on paying someone to ins... Read more

    A Hey Alex, For your output, I'd probably recommend going with the Blues Output. For this, you'd need to change your volume pot to a 500K pot in order to optimize the tone. The 500K pot does not come with the pickups, but you can purchase one directly from us here (the model you want is the 500K Split Shaft). - Tyler

    Hey Dagan, that's a good question. We'd probably recommend going with our Blues Output Mustang to match, but keep in mind that these pickups sound best on different pot values. We suggest giving us a call at your convenience to discuss this further.

  8. 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.

  1. 6StringKook

    Exactly what I was looking for in my Mustang/DS-2 build.

  2. Wes Hinckes
    Verified Buyer

    I read the reviews on this page and then brought the Split Blades with High Output (+500k pots) for a Fender American Performer Mustang. I play indie and rock and found the Yosemite pickups too twangy for the music style.

    These pickups have really done what I was looking for. It’s much more of a modern sound now and works really well with every rock/indie/metal effect I’m using.

    My other guitar is a Les Paul with Seymour Duncan ‘Whole Lotta Humbuckers’ fitted and I can now switch between the guitars without the Mustang sounding weak and underpowered in comparison.

    I have nothing but good things to say. To say I’m delighted is an understatement. It’s great to have my Mustang back as my guitar of choice.

    I’m in the UK so it wasn’t cheap. Shipping from the USA was expensive but very quick and professional. There is also the import tax charge (£50) which needs paying to get it through customs and this is separate to everything else.

    Expensive but definitely worth it and the guitars now a keeper for life!

  3. Dan Allen
    Verified Buyer

    I have had Fralin JM pickups and I like them, a LOT. But. Honest to God, these have made my Mustang the best sounding guitar I have. They have a full, thick tone. Even our drummer told me, “best tone you’ve ever had”. I am inclined to agree. I wouldn’t hesitate to buy them again or recommend them.

  4. Andy
    Verified Buyer

    Bought the split blades with blues output with 500k volume pots and put them on an American Professional Mustang because I prefer a short scale but love the strat tone. I’m blown away at how good it sounds. Such a nice, thick, and creamy tone that’s perfect for the music I like to play (Hendrix, SRV, etc). Handles overdrive and fuzz beautifully (no hum either!).
