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.

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.

Split Blade For Mustang Questions And Answers:

    How far away from the strings does the pickup need to be?
  1. 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.
  2. How will this pickup differ from a standard Strat pickup?
  3. 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.
  4. What Radius do I need?
  5. Q What Radius do I need?
    A Round Radius: (7.25"-9") Medium Radius: (9.5"-11") Flat Radius: (12+” or Compound Radius)
  6. Which output should I choose?
  7. 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.
  8. 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!
  9. Q I too have a 2021 Mustang American Performer with the stock Yosemite pickups. Can you suggest whi...... Read more
    A 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.
  10. 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... Read more

    A They are Hum Cancelling Pickups, so they cancel hum in all positions. Neck and Bridge, plus Middle. Our pickups will certainly solve the issue you are having!
  12. 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

    A We would recommend the Medium Radius for this guitar. You would certainly need the 3 wire configuration if you’re looking for Phase Switching.
  14. 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 ... Read more

    A We would recommend the Vintage Outputs on 300K pots for what you’re looking for!

    yeah baby yeah

    Put these in my 2019 Swinger and it is now a beast. The stock pups weren’t too bad but these are much better, high output spec, really nice clear voicing but take dirt very well. they look cool too.

    Love these pickups

    Replaced the stock pickups in my early 2007s MIJ Fender 65 reissue – I always thought the original pickups sounded really weak and flat, I generally had always on pedals to balance that out. These pickups sound amazing in comparison, much thicker, higher, clean output. The 3 wire configuration is super interesting as well, allowed me to do some cool phase switching options in my new wiring setup. Would recommend.

    Unique! Terrific pickups!

    I got the mustang set of round radius blues split blades for a short-scale Musicmaster ii. The guitar just had a weak strat neck pickup that someone put in years ago, but it also had the routing of a Mustang body. I wanted something that could produce a lot of different sounds and have a similar output as my Jazzmaster. I sent an email asking for a recommendation and they suggested these. Clear bright highs and thick lows, very full and powerful, but still a single coil sound without hum. I also use an out-of-phase switch and a jaguar bright switch on the neck. So many tonal possibilities. Not sure how they compare to traditional mustangs but they sound great.

    I settled on the Split Blade pup after seeing the footage of Lindy playing them live in a strat. I figured if the man himself digs his noiseless design then I would invest in one. It sounds dreamy and the aged white pup in my shell-pink Mustang is as beautiful as candy. I must admit as a Virginian I appreciate that the pup was made right here.

    Best Upgrade I’ve ever bought
    I recently started overhauling an old fender mustang & looked into noiseless pickups for recording purposes. I settled on a Dimarzio Cruzer and one of Lindys split blades. While the Dimarzio is great I consistently end up switching it off and use this split blade. The tone is crystal clear and chimes, but can also pick up as much dirt as you want when you dig in. I have bought a p90 from Lindy before and am hooked at this point. Amazing investment, great quality, and customer service is an added bonus. Cheers!

    put them in a late 50’s duo-sonic

    Got the vintage output pickups and put them in a late 50’s duo-sonic, and they are incredible!! Warm and jangly in the neck, bright but not shrill in the bridge …very reminiscent of what a good early 50’s blackguard Tele would be (a bit darker sounding than later Tele’s )

    Fender ’67 Mustang

    Purchased a set of split blades (vintage output) for a Mustang restoration. One of the original pickups was missing, so after doing some research and reading reviews I contacted Lindy. He helped me guide me on the output I was looking for and answered any of my questions. Even though I had already found the wiring diagram on the Fralin site, he still emailed the link to me after I placed the order – which to me was very important because this guitar did not have the original switches installed, so I had not seen how it was originally wired. The pickups came with plenty of lead wire and fit perfectly. Once it was all put back together, I watched Lindy’s video on pickup height adjustment. Once the height was dialed in, the pickups sound great! The pickups have really given life back to an old guitar! Great products, service, and support!

    Glorious and Twangtastic!

    I got these pickups to replace the stock pickups that came with my MIJ fender mustang. I bought the guitar online and was disappointed with just how sad the stock pickups were. I decided to get these after a few weeks of debating and finally made the $ plunge. These pickups were way better than I could have imagined!! You really have to hear them in person to hear all the detail, they’re exactly as described. A lot of warmth with thick richness and the kind of twang you want, without the tinny thinness you don’t. They are indeed so very quiet, so much so that I almost forgot to mention it. This company makes great pickups and these split blades are definitely worth the money!

    Fantastic!

    Installed on my mustang and it came alive! Best upgrade ever. Very quiet. I would buy again in a heartbeat! Jam on world, jam on.
