Inspired by the alternative music scene of the mid-to-late '80s this is my overwound take on the vintage Telecaster bridge pickup. The flat Alnico 2 polepieces are slightly warmer sounding than Alnico 5 but with the taller, stronger magnets, I've managed to keep the traditional tele twang and mix this with an aggressive, biting output, great for really driving an amp or running effects.

They've been a real labour of love these pickups and have gone through numerous changes to get them rght. A great Tele rhythm or lead pickup if you want more bite and a modern aggressive attack.

The Alt '88 Telecaster Neck comes without cover to let more of the attack come through. It can also be RW/RP if required.
