The Fender Telecaster was the first true production electric solid body. The unmistakable twang and solid feel make this workhorse a classic guitar design.
Our Tele replacement pickups are a reproduction of the 50s style using black fiberboard bobbin parts, cloth leads, ALNICO V or ALNICO III magnets, or 1/2 & 1/2. (ALNICO III‰۪s were used in some pre 55 Fender Telecasters.)
On 1/2 & 1/2 pickups, we put the ALNICO III magnets in the E, A & G position and the ALNICO V magnets in the D, B & high E. This puts the brighter magnets where they are most useful.
NOTE: *All listed ohm readings are an approximate.
Wound to 7 K with 43 gauge Plain Enamel wire. Bright, clear and classic. Comes with chrome cover. Hybrid magnets (an extended D pole out the bottom) are available.
This pickup can also be overwound 2% overstock. We don't recommend anything hotter with a cover on it.
NOTE: Both the metal cover and over winding make the pickup darker in tone, so covers are available only on our stock neck for Teles.
Tele Replacement Style Bridges are offered in three magnet staggers and a Steel Poled version. The three stagger styles are flat poles (Broadcaster), flat with a raised D magnet (Hybrid), and stock stagger.
Wound with 42 gauge Plain Enamel wire to approximately 6.6k (8,800 turns).
This pickup is also available slightly overwound @ 2% over (approx 6.8k) and 5% over (approx 7k).
