The Fralin Vintage Hot Tele set is a superb choice for anyone seeking clarity and articulation in their Tele sound. The warm, clear lows paired with brilliant highs create an inspiring twang that is sure to delight.
The Vintage Hot Tele set is designed to provide a clean and transparent tone that can cut through any mix, allowing you to hear the nuances in your playing. The pickups are all hand-wound to '50s specs by expert craftsmen, and the USA-made Alnico 5 magnets offer tonal balance and output, while the compensated bridge ensures even volume across all pickups.
Fralin's "Sectioning" technique for hand-winding the pickups creates a unique and dynamic tone that sets the Vintage Hot Tele set apart from the others. The fiberboard bobbins are hand-built and the set is backed by a 10-year warranty on manufacturing defects.
The neck pickup has a reading of 7.6K with a counter-clockwise coil direction, while the bridge pickup has a reading of 6.8K with a clockwise coil direction providing clean sound with lots of Fender sparkle and twang. The pickups use USA-made 42/43 plain enamel wire, and a recommended pot value of 250K and cap value of 0.02mfd delivers an era-authentic sound with modern output.
