    What's the difference between your neck pickup and a bridge pickup? Fralin's site does not make a distinction for this model. Also wondering what the extra 10% of winding contributes, say to a small bass body made with maple, a maple neck, and rosewood fretboard? Thanks!

    The difference is primarily the size. On a fender bass the neck pickup is not as wide as the bridge pickup to compensate for the strings spreading out from nut to bridge.

    You can find more info about over and under winding here Welcome to Lindy Fralin Pickups: About Guitars and Pickups and The Finest Guitar Pickups Available Today!

    The relevant part is this....
    More turns on any pickup will give a stronger, thicker but darker sound (see example above). Stronger pickups sound better for single string playing (plain strings). Lower output pickups sound better in chords (wound strings).

    Single string playing would be like us bass players.

    I don't know how it'll sound in your bass based on the woods used. That's a can of worms. One maple bass might sound darker or brighter than another.

    It's a great sounding pickup. Don't let the description lead you to believe there's no highs. There's highs in this pickup too, it just has really good lows too.

    OK, thanks for the info! This would be for the bridge pickup of a P/J Hohner B2B (Steinberger copy). I didn't see a distinction in size of neck vs. bridge J pups on the Fralin site, but I can see why there would be a difference. GLWTS!
