Don't let the name fool you - Vintage Hot means vintage neck/middle, hot bridge. Sparkling, bright, and open, Vintage Hots provide a balanced '50s tone with a smooth balance between bright and fat. They fit in the middle sonically between Fralin's Real '54s and Blues Specials. These pickups are era-authentic: wound with USA-made 42-gauge Formvar-enameled wire and built with USA-made alnico 5 magnets. These pickups sound smooth, balanced, and beautiful.

Clear without sounding tinny or glassy, Vintage Hots are big and full, with an even balance of bass, middle, and treble, whether clean or dirty. The tone cuts through with distortion while remaining very dynamic and thick. Expect a precise low-end and an acute attack. Single notes cut through with ease, while chords have an excellent string-to-string definition.

Fralin's manufacturing process allows for unparalleled quality control. Vintage Hots consist of locally-stamped fiberboard and USA-made alnico 5 Magnets. Fralin winds each pickup by hand, one at a time. Then they wax-pot the pickup to preserve the pickup and prevent microphonics.
