Lindy Fralin Pickups started as a humble, one-man-shop in the Historic Fan District in Richmond, Virginia. Passionate about guitars and tone, Lindy started taking broken pickups from local music stores and rewinding them with a winder built from a sewing machine motor and pedal, and a variac in a coffee can. After some of the local guitarists listened and heard Lindy's pickups, Lindy realized quickly that he was on to something.
Growing his rewind business, Lindy got his hands on some of the most sought after pickups available. He received countless pickups from all eras, and his passion for music pushed him to examine all the details of these vintage pickups and determine their "magic".
Keeping true to our roots, we're still a small and humble shop of 10 employees. The Lindy Fralin Pickups team strives to make the highest quality product available: from start to finish. Our pickups are assembled from the highest quality materials we can get our hands on. We use all USA-Made parts, and we assemble, wind, and test every pickup by hand - with unsurpassable attention to detail. Our goal is for our customer to be completely blown away by the tone, clarity, and articulation of our pickups. We will continue to strive to make the best-sounding pickups available, and we hope you love them as much as we do.
Monkton Guitars has been working with Lindy Fralin since the beginning. Dave's 1956 Strat Middle Pickup was rewound by Lindy 25+ years ago.
