A Modern, Hotter Telecaster Neck Pickup
A punchier, higher output version of the Classic Telecaster Neck pickup with Alnico 2, 5 or 8 magnets.
The higher output gives this pickup a more rounded, fatter & driving sound than the more vintage pickup series, still with Telecaster clarity but this is a pickup that has been designed to balance the traditional Tele sound with a more modern attack.
Alnico 2 is slightly weaker, which 'holds' the strings a little less, allowing them to vibrate a little more freely, helping to give a slightly warmer sound whereas Alnico 5 is slightly stronger, 'holding' the strings a little more helping to give a slightly more attacking, punchier sound. Alnico 8 is stronger still for a more focussed, attacking sound.
