Signature Tele

  • $169.00

Our Signature pickups for Tele use Alnico 5 magnets on the bass side (E-A-D) and Alnico 2 on the treble side (G-B-E). This maintains the bass response of a traditional Tele set while letting the treble strings "breathe" a little more with the lower magnetic pull of the Alnico 2 rod magnets. Doing this results in a creamier top end and less ice-picky response from the top strings, especially in the bridge position. 

For the neck pickup, we overwind the coil using heavy formvar wire to give more "pop" to the classic chrome-covered Telecaster pickup. 

The bridge pickup is wound using heavy poly nylon wire, which produces a sound close to that of formvar, bright and punchy without being harsh.
