My Creamery handwound pickups & sets for the 1972 Custom Telecaster (Custom '72 Tele) are direct drop replacements.

Creamery Custom Handwound Replacement '72 Custom Tele Pickups & Sets
Its one of my most popular sets and I usually make them as a custom order. I don't have pickups all boxed up ready to send out, each order is custom made which means I can make them to your own specifications if required.
I don't charge any extra for this - I see each pickup I make as a custom thing.
Calibrated Replacement Tele Custom Pickup Set - Balanced for Volume across the positions
With the original pickups & reissue pickup sets often unbalanced, there can be sudden volume drops & jumps when switching between Bridge & Neck positions. I often make Tele Custom '72 Pickup Sets to offer much more even volume levels for much more even switching.

True Design Wide Range Humbucker for the Neck Position
Unlike the modern reissue pickups, my replacement '72 Tele Custom neck position Wide Range Humbucker is true to the original '70s Seth Lover design with individual threaded magnets and internal ferrous reflector pates. Such a versatile pickup, it balances the warmth of a humbucker with the clarity & definition of a single-coil. The original design was more of a 'Doubled'Up' single coil rather than a humbucker; you can read about my true replica Classic '71 Wide Range Humbuckers here.
Available with covers in custom yellowed bare nickel, nickel, chrome and my hand-aged chrome or nickel covers, you can order a single neck position here - Neck Position Wide Range Humbucker for a '72 Custom Tele.

Balanced Bridge Position Pickup
With the bridge pickup of the '72 Custom Telecaster & Tele Custom reissue guitars often much lower in output, there can be somewhat of a sudden volume ump when switching through the positions. I often custom make a '72 Tele custom bridge position to counter this and be more balanced volume-wise. Whether it be a variation on my Vintage 1 Nocaster, Vintage 2 Broadcaster, Hot Alnico 5 or Alt-88 Tele Bridge Pickup I make the set calibrated to be more even, whilst still keeping to the characteristics of the classic Tele bridge.
