  1. Does anyone have any input on the sound differences between these options?? Specifically I'm referring to the option offered on Lindy Fralin's bass pickups.

    FWIW:

    Lindy would be the one to ask about his pups but in general there's alnico 5 and ceramic. Alnico's are common for a warmer, less clear, vintage like tone and ceramics for a brighter, clearer, higher output, more contemporary tone.

    That's a gross generality as the mag is just one influence on a pups tone. I would contact Lindy.
