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 'Treble' replacement Tele Bridge pickup give that richer, musical sound synonimous with the old classic Burns Tri-Sonic® design - just in a standard Tele bridge size & shape
Geometry dictates they won't sound identical to the old 60s classics as the pickups are Tele Size and I use my custom made thinner magnets inside the pressed coil, but they're designed & tested to be richer, sweeter and more rounded than standard Tele bridge pickups.
With a choice of magnets, you can choose to have a warmer or brighter version. Alnico 2 'holds' the strings a little less, allowing them to vibrate a little more freely giving a perceived slightly warmer, more resonant sound.
Alnico 5 offers a slightly brighter, more attacking characteristic than Alnico 2.
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.
