A Warmer, Richer Telecaster Bridge Sound
With handwound coil pressed around the custom designed magnet and wax potted in a combination of paraffin & beeswax, the Sonic '60 'Mid-Range' replacement Tele Bridge pickup give that richer, musical sound synonimous with the old classic Burns Tri-Sonic® design but in a new fatter, fuller, dirtier & grittier sound with more emphasis on the mid-range.
I designd these after feedback from players who loved the brighter standard Sonic '60s I made for them but wanted a fatter, hotter, more mid-range version to compliment - If you're looking for more mid-range to your bridge sound, and want something a little different, an alternative to the traditional pickup, then maybe the new Sonic '60 'Mid-Range' pickup could be for you.
Whereas the standard Sonic '60s are wound with thicker 42awg coil wire and are available in a variety of Alnico magnet choices, I spent a long time on the new 'Mid-Range' 43awg versions and concluded, after much testing, that the stronger Alnico 5 and Alnico 8 versions worked best. You can choose either based on your own preference, Alnico 8 being the strongest with a little more output and more cooler focus whereas the slightly weaker Alnico 5 is that little bit sweeter but with slightly less attack.
With or Without Tele Baseplate
You can choose to have the pickup with or without the classic Tele steel baseplate. With the baseplate you get more of the classic twang with a little more warmth. Without the baseplate the sound is a little brighter, a little more crunchier, a little more aggressive.
