More details

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. This pickups have a high output, being a single coil, 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. This pickup have a great definition and "punch", with that "cutting edge" character that a good Tele® bridge pickup should have. If you try this pickup with a maple fretboard and a tweed amp with alnico speakers, you will understand why these guitars became a legend.
