The early Tele® guitars had a very distinctive sound which is often associated with country, jazz or tockabilly, although these guitars can do any music style. These pickups have a high output, being single coils, but because the alnico 3 magnets, its sound isn't abrupt or aggressive. The bass sound is thick and the highs are crystlline almost acoustic. The neck pickup have that belly an Woody tone, while the bridge pickup have more definition and "punch", with that "cutting edge" character that a good Tele® bridge pickup should have. If you try this set with a maple fretboard and a tweed amp with alnico speakers, you will understand why these guitars became a legend.

Neck pickup RW/RP (hum-cancelling in the middle position).

- Neck cover made of nickel silver.

I offer some options in the Tele® pickups:

- Magnets staggering of the bridge pickup (impotant for the string volume compensation): vintage (same height D and G magnets), modern (G magnet lower than D), flat (all magnets same height), reverse vintage (lefty vintage), modern vintage (lefty modern).


About staggering, it's about string volume balance. If you use not 100% nickel strings, than a modern staggering is the best to get the best balance of volumes, with a flat you have a low D string volume and with a vintage, then is the G string that sound with high volume. 

- Finish of the neck cover: raw, nickel, chrome or gold.

Including screws and tubing to mount.
