The Classic Tele Bass / Starcaster Bass Fender Wide Range Humbucker
A true replacement for the modern Wide Range / Starcaster Bass reissue pickups
Classic Tele / Starcaster Bass sounds. Individual threaded pole magnets allow you to dial in each string.
I spent a good while working on these trying to get the design just right, balancing the original with a modern voice - eventually coming up with two options, a brighter, crisper, punchier version and one with more of the original fat, dark mid-range thump. Another direct drop-in replacement for the modern Starcaster Bass / Tele Bass Wide Range Humbucker reissues.
Based on the classic '70s Fender Bass Design, eight individual threaded rod magnets ( four hidden ) help give a great single coil option when split.
Indvidual Threaded Alnico or original Spec CuNiFe Magnets
Choose from stronger, brighter, more attacking sounding Alnico 5 - Slightly warmer, sweeter sounding Alnico 2 or my custom manufactured CuNiFe Magnets which are very similar to Alnico 2 but more vintage correct to the original WRHB design. CuNiFe does carry a higher price as they just cost more for me to have them custom manufactured but after being asked on a weekly basis for the past number of years, I finally gave in and had them manufactured.
PLEASE NOTE: These pickups are a direct drop-in replacement to fit the modern Tele Bass / Starcaster Bass Wide Range Humbuckers and the output can also be custom to your requirements.
