Here's something for you die hard Telecaster players. These over wound Tele pickups are constructed with Alnico 5 magnets and enamel coated magnet wire. The bridge pickup features height staggered magnets and copper plated steel bottom plate for increased output, presence and mid-range, while the nickel silver cover on the neck pickup produces a clear warm tone that only a true Custom Shop Tele pickup can do. From Merle to Metal, the Texas Special Tele will demand their attention. Original equipment on the James Burton Standard and Merle Haggard Tribute Telecaster, these pickups work great with our 4 way Tele Switch for parallel and series tones!
