Inspired by legendary Telecaster pickups of the '50s and the '60s. Vintage, modern or custom models available.

  • authentic copper plated steel baseplate used for bridge pickup
  • correct vintage style cotton string to protect the coil
  • vulcanized fiberboard bobbins; black, grey, red or white
  • Alnico magnets; A2, A3, A4, A5 and A8
  • cloth covered push back wire. 22AWG tinned and stranded. The cloth insulation can be pushed back to expose the centre conductor wire. No stripping required.
  • transparent sounding nickel silver neck covers or brass (chrome plated) neck pickup covers for darker tone. Nickel silver covers are available non plated ( raw ), chrome, nickel or gold plated.

These are usually wax potted, but sometimes we will dip them in nitro or shellac, or leave them unpotted.

If you need custom built pickups there are many options to choose from; Alnico 2, 3, 4, 5 or Alnico 8 alloys, beveled or flat pole pieces, vintage staggered or flat magnet height, DC resistance, AWG 42 or AWG 43 wire gauge, single coil or noiseless, coil tapped or classic.

Each pickup comes with the screws and the springs for mounting them on the guitar. Telecaster neck pickups are supplied with wood screws, not for the pickguard. If you need the screws for the pickguard please contact us when making an order.
