These vintage pickups are based on the early 50's Nocaster/Telecaster period. The combination of Alnico 3 magnets and scatterwound Plain Enamel wire produces the classic Telecaster tones. Bridge pickup has bite and grit without ever sounding harsh. Neck Pickup has great clarity and definition. Together ( in parallel or series, they provide hum cancellation because of the reverse winding direction and magnetic polarity).
