High Output Replacement Pickups for Tele’s®
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 50’s 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 Vmagnets in the D, B & high E. This puts the brighter magnets where they are most useful.
NOTE: *All listed ohm readings are an approximate.
