Fender Vintera ‘50’s Tele pickups produce the crisp, snarling tone that put Fender on the musical map. The bridge pickup features alnico 3 magnets that are flush-mounted for vintage “Blackguard” bite and the neck pickup uses alnico 2 for rich, detailed warmth found in early 50’s Telecasters.
Made with the same materials and specifications as an early '50s Telecaster pickup, Fender's Original Vintage Tele Pickups speak with extremely accurate vintage Tele twang. Made with Alnico 3 magnets and enamel-coated magnet wire, these pickups duplicate the warmth and edge that you expect from Fender. The bridge pickup sports the traditional copper-plated steel base plate for that extra midrange punch; warmth and clarity come from the nickel-plated steel-covered neck pickup. OEM on American Vintage and many Custom Shop Telecaster guitars. Available in black (bridge) and nickel (neck) only.
