PRODUCT INFORMATION:

WIDE TONAL-RANGE HUMBUCKER.

Our Wide Range Humbucker is a modern take on the original classic. Originally built and designed by Seth Lover for Fender, this was the answer to Gibson’s darker-sounding humbuckers. Today, Lindy Fralin took his idea a little further, by making this pickup sweet, articulate, and clear and clean. Our Wide Range humbuckers will drop right in to your guitar, as they are the same fit and finish as the factory ones. This pickup will sound reminiscent of our P-92’s – Bold, but clear and articulate.


FEATURES:

  • Loud, bright, articulate clean tones and smooth, slightly crunchy distortion tones.
  • Same size as the original Wide Range Humbuckers
  • Threaded Alnico 5 Pole Pieces and for top-end sparkle
  • Traditional humbucker design and looks
  • USA-Made Parts, and Wound to spec, one at a time.

SOUND:

The Fralin Wide Range Humbucker is Clean, articulate, and bright. If you have a darker or dull-sounding guitar, these will breathe new life into it. Lows are big, bouncy and clear like most Fender humbucker designs. The Mids are slightly scooped with an emphasis on the high mids. This pickup is sure to cut through the mix, without sounding brittle, shrill or thin. Playing dirty, this pickup won’t break up as early as traditional humbuckers. It will still sound thick in the low mids and smooth on the top-end. As with all our pickups, we take care to make sure we wind it to your specifications. Want it to sound a little fatter and darker? No problem – we’ll wind it to spec, free of charge.

FAQ’s:

  1. What type of lead should I choose? Since Fender debuted this pickup, 2-Conductor is so much easier to work with on Fender-style instruments. It also allows you to reverse the phase, if you end up swapping the pickup into another guitar, down the road.
  2. What cover options do you have? At this time, we only offer the Wide Range in Polished and Raw Nickel.
  3. What is the Spacing? 52mm.

TECHNICAL INFO:

Our Wide Range Humbucker is wound with 42-gauge wire, we can put any number of turns on this to suit your needs. Stock Set: -2% Neck and +3% overwound bridge from the original. This equates to an 8.2K Neck and a 9K Bridge. This gives our pickup a slightly darker and fatter bridge, and a clearer and more articulate neck. Need something custom? No problem. We can wind it to meet your tonal desire. Pole pieces are threaded AlNiCo magnets.

    I’m in love!
    Spoiler alert: these pickups are sounding awesome. I use them in my aqua flake Tele Deluxe for Emo/Post Rock and it’s total fun, I already played some shows with them. Especially I Like the Neck Pickup, deep, clear and detailed clean sounds that will make you become an addict. The middle position gives you nice, twangy tones, love it. I use the bridge pickup mostly for overdriven sounds and it has a nice bite and punch, great string definition, too. Much love from Hamburg, Germany?

  2. Almir Dervisevic (verified owner)

    My Telecaster Custom completely opened up in neck position. Love it. It replaced muddy WRH originally installed. It’s very clear with definition

  3. Corey Lien (verified owner)

    Crystal clear
    I replaced the stock WRHB (neck) in my ‘72 Tele Custom reissue with the Fralin WRHB, and it made a world of difference. The muddy, dull sound is now bright, clear, and articulate while still maintaining a thick quality. Love this pickup!

  4. andreazanolini (verified owner)

    I installed this pickup in the neck position of my Fender Telecaster Custom 72 Reissue. The stock pickup was muddy and laking of mids and definition. This pickup has both a clearer and richer sound associated with a great dynamic. The pick up is “percussive” and the attack is great.
    This pickup changed my guitar and brought it to a new life.

  5. Jabe Beyer

    Lindy was kind enough to custom wind me a set of mid-range humbuckers for my Tele Deluxe, with just a touch lower output. Perfect tone, exactly what I was hoping for, and quick turnaround. I couldn’t be more pleased.”

  6. Matt Pethel (verified owner)

    Brings life to MIM reissues!
    I dropped these bad boys into my 72 Tele Deluxe reissue, and I was blown away. First, it eliminated the notorious hum that comes with the stock wide ranges. It brings out the transients for a more defined, pronounced attack. It also scoops out a lot of the mud and my guitar has never cut through the mix so well! It’s seriously like a brand new guitar, and I couldn’t be happier. Highly recommended!

  7. Ben T (verified owner)

    Thanks for the Wide Range Humbuckers and the personal call, Lindy. They fit the bill nicely. They are clearer and less congested than the stock wide range humbuckers. Your description of them is spot on, as being clear and articulate with a little push, and wide on the bottom and smooth on top.
