More details

These pickups have single coil format and are made with the same materials and features that are most associated to the Telecaster sound. The pickups are potted in the right mix of beeswax-paraffin, which prevents the microphonics problems without reducing richness of sound. The coils are made from "forbon" and have clothing-wire like the originals. They are wound by hand with 43 AWG Heavy Formvar (richer in harmonics) wire (neck pickups) and  vintage toffe color plain enamel 42 AWG (bridge pickup). Magnets are alnico 2 (neck pickup) and alnico 5 (bridge pickup), charged  by hand as they did in the old 50´s. The bridge pickup has a steel base plate finished in copper, which gives it the classic twang sound. The neck pickup has a cover made of nickel-silver, which prevents the lost of the high frequencies, as happens in cases where the cover is made of brass. With these pickups you will obtain a very articulated and warm sound in the neck and a twangy-rocker sound by the bridge pickup. The neck pickup is RW/RP to get the "hum-cancelling" in the middle position.
